This DIY scarf hanger is the perfect organization solution for all your scarves! So if one of your New Year’s Resolutions was to get organized here is a simple DIY project.

Download the template, print (with no scaling) and fasten the three pages together.

Next cut out the hanger shape from the paper. Lay it on the masonite and draw around. With a tac or sharp object mark the center of each hole, piercing through the paper and into the masonite.

    Great idea for organizing and gift giving - you could even paint the recipient's name on it! I made a scarf rack from an upcycled chair if you're interested in checking it out: http://eveofreduction.com/how-to-upcycle-a-chair-into-a-scarf-rack/

      Mallie, I have one I bought but scarves are bigger these days and the holes weren't big enough. This way you can make the holes the size you like! Thanks for commenting!
