Em here, so I guess Marquette and I are on the same wave length, because again, this is one of our own! Here goes!
This easy little DIY scarf organizer was just what I needed for The Mr.Chips 8 million ties seen here:
I need to preface this by saying, this project endured all those ties for about six months, but didn't make it during the move this last June. Boo. And I, like so many of us, saw the picture once and decided to take creative liberty with it, and make it different and of course better...not so much. Here is the mess:
Ok, ok, in MY defense, this is it pretty mangled after Chip tried to get all his ties off (they were begging for mercy at that point). However it didn't turn out well to begin with. I used masking tape, mistake number one (what was I thinking, seriously?! Masking tape?!). Then I put the hooks on the inside, which is fine, except I used WAY too many shower curtain hooks for one hanger, I should have broken it up between two hangers, mistake number two. Then I used a plastic hanger, because that is what I had, mistake number three.
How to fix this:
Don't put too many items on one hanger, it kinda defeats the purpose of an organized closet.
Use metal hangers.
Use ribbon, yarn, or try this method:
ALSO in my defense I was making this late at night, so maybe I was exhausted and not thinking clearly...anyways, embarrassing yes, but now informative for you, also a yes.
