You will need an ordinary clothes hanger plus some shower curtain rings. Lots of space-saving room to hang your scarves and belts.

I love this tip. I found some scarves buried in the bottom of the drawer. Now everything is easy to find. Thanks for posting.

I used a terrific tip on this site about making a scarf holder with a hanger and shower curtain rings. However, I noticed that two scarves snagged on the rings. Upon closer examination of the rings I bought, I saw some rough edges. I covered them with masking tape and now the scarves don't snag anymore.

Plastic shoe boxes with tops can be used to store scarves and. I store my scarves by category or seasons,,fold them and stack in containers in order to see through the clear plastic container the scarf that I might need to wear as an accessory. Storing in the plastic shoe boxes also keeps down dust on the scarves that might be attracted by the dust in a closet.

Scarves are all the rage now and I wear them almost daily. I have always had a scarf collection, but with the fashion, I like to keep them handy.

I own a lot of scarves but could never find one when I needed it until I made this great scarf organizer which can also be used for necklaces or men's ties.

I make lots of scarves each year, really wide ones, out of fleece from Walmart. We really enjoy them a lot. I have found that they decorate the chair really beautifully.

To organize or display scarves, loop them through colorful, plastic bangle bracelets that are not being worn and then hang them on a hook or coat tree.

I have a lot of scarves, probably 12-15 or more, and need a good way to store these lovely splashes of color, in my closet, hopefully. Ideas?

I use clip clothes pins and a regular hanger. Clip the scarves to the hanger by a corner to prevent wrinkles. This makes it easy to arrange the scarves by color or size and whatever system you choose.

I'm thinking of using shower curtain clips - the circular ones. Slip them on a hangar and then thread a scarf through each one - easy to remove, easy to put back.

I roll my scarves up and shove them through toilet roll or wrapping paper tubes. This leaves them relatively wrinkle-free yet easily seen. I have well over 50 scarves so one drawer is dedicated to them. Opening the drawer always brings me joy for it looks like a flower bed in full bloom. I "lined" the drawer with felt so nothing would snag.

I do the same thing for gloves.

I have an increasing number of scarves and wraps. What is a good way to store them so they don't get too crushed?

Put them on a hanger in your closet.

Measure the back of a door.

Sew a large piece that fits inside it, leaving lots of space for knob etc. You will have a large rectangle.

Use upolstery fabric as it has some weight and will hang straight. Look for ends and pieces.

Put 3 cup hooks on door , measure them one for each corner and one for the middle.

On the fabric use a grommet maker and put three grommets in the fabric so they will hang on the cup hooks.

Now, that is finished, you go to a fabric store or department and purchase rings, I use wooden rings about 1 1/2 " size or larger as you see fit.

Measure and mark with chalk and stitch the rings to the fabric, I put them 6 inches apart up and down and across.

Now you thread your scarves through the rings and when you need one you just pull it out and when finished, push it back through the ring. good luck

They make a really cool big hanger with lots of holes in it just to hold scarves. I bet you could find one at Bed, Bath and Beyond or in one of the junk catalogs like Carol Wright, Harriet Carter or Miles Kimball. Good luck!

I organize by color, fold in half and use pants hangers to hold them.
