How I hang my scarves

November 19, 2014 | My Jottings

I like to wear scarves now and then and have received many as beautiful gifts. I’ve tried several ways to store them over the years, from tying them on hangers like this, and folding them neatly in drawers. I knew I didn’t want something like this scarf hanger, because the scarves would lay on top of each other and wouldn’t be as easily accessible.

I searched around for a while online to find just what I wanted, and these little individual hangers are what I settled on:


They’re perfect. I like that they’re all separate and can be slid across a closet pole just like other garments. This was just a part of our closet where shirts would have been hung, and I decided it would be my scarf rack.


These aren’t the best photos — the light in the closet is high and rather dim for photography. There is absolutely no orange on any scarf, in spite of what you see. It’s really a delightful coral color. (You can click to enlarge them.)

When I glance at my scarves I see Diane, Kay, Sharon, Carolyn, Sara, and Scotland…

And here’s a really neat video about how to tie a scarf 25 ways in 4.5 minutes. It’s fun to watch. The two ties I do most often are called The European Loop and The Magic Trick.

Do you like to wear scarves? How do you store yours?

    What a great idea Julie! Mine are all draped over my coats or piled in storage boxes and then I forget what I have. You have a special knack for unique ideas organizing your home…I especially loved your chalk board idea with encouraging scriptures written creatively. Keep’m coming! I had my grands draw Thanksgiving themed pics on our “plywood” back door….”making lemonade out of lemons” I like to think. Our new door couldn’t be delivered till first week of December. Takes the “sting” out of the thought why it’s like that….
    Blessings & warm thoughts of thanksgiving for you …… 🙂

    I love your lemonade back door idea, Linda. A good memory for your grands, I’m sure. Thank you for stopping in, dear friend. xoxo

    I’m a scarf person. They tend to be draped where I hang my bag for easy access.

    Julie, you can even write about scarves and keep me enthralled! Can I ask where you found the cute little hangers?

    I have a scarf ADDICTION! I cannot walk into a store without first going to the scarves and introducing myself! The grocery store even has them!!! Hello. My name is Ginny and I am a scarfaholic.
    When they are grouped by colors, I head to the blacks first. I got a “thing” for black. I like the thinner ones that I can wrap and drape as my neck is not as swanlike as yours. I don’t have anyplace to hang them like you have yours which is way cool (my whole closet is that big)! I have a wonderful large hook, with a glass knob on the end, that I drape them over. I can see them all, but have to dig a bit to release the choice of the day, as there are many…

    I think we should take a vote to see how many who stop by this blog would read a blog by Ginny? I cast my vote — you are funny and a good writer, Ginny. I would like you to start a blog and show us a picture of your scarf knob. And no one has ever called any part of me swanlike — THAT made my day. xoxoxo 🙂
