Hanging Circular Scarf Organizer

As you know, I have a lot of scarves.  My scarf drawer is becoming a tad unruly.  I've always wanted to try one of those belt-scarf organizers but the cost seemed a little pricey for a bunch of circles joined together.

So, when they had one in the as-is section at IKEA (returns, discontinued, missing pieces, clearance) for $5, I thought it was a good time to try one out.

I wasn't sure how you were supposed to thread the scarves through, so just looped them and left them hanging down the front.  With lots of scarves, I put 2 into each circle.


I only hung the longer thin scarves; the squares and thicker ones are going to stay in the compartmented drawer.  I'm sure there is a better way to loop them, but will try it like this for a while.

My closet is too stuffed for me to hang this inside, so I McGyvered a ribbon and door hook so that this could be at eye level.

I think it works quite well.

  1. You DO have a lot of scarves! More than I have. I came up with a hanger and shower curtain rings to organize my scarves this summer, but I have to rearrange the whole dang thing every time I remove one! So, it's not a complete success.

    1. Hi Terri: This scarf organizer seems to work fairly well - I'm thinking of adding belts too.

  2. I have to GET one of these! My scarves spill from a large drawer and a closet shelf!

    1. Hey Susan, I've only used it for a few days, but I love it. So organized and doesn't take up much room.
