i have a growing collection of scarves and they're piling up all over my room. we're not talkng winter scarves here, but the cute ones to tie around your neck etc. they get wrinkly if i shove them in a drawer. i was thinking maybe something i could hang in my closet?

There are a couple things you can do

Take a plastic hanger (NO WIRE HANGERS EVER!!!)  attach shower curtain hooks. use the cheap plastic circular ones, they have a nice tight closue on them.  Put them on the cross bar of the hanger & close them. just slip the scarves through the rings.   This also looks neat if you use a tension curtain rod & hang it in a window, gives you a neat valance effect if you have enough scarves.

wow! that sounds fabulous! and easy! i'll be trying that later. i'm positive that we have extra shower hooks lying around somewhere.

Ooh, or, taking on Jule's idea, you could stretch a chain across your wall between two eye-hooks screwed into the wall, then hang the shower curtain rings from the links.  That would give you a similar effect (but I just like using chains in things.  they make me happy).

Or you could also imitate my $3 curtain rods, by screwing half-inch eye hooks into appropriate places in the wall above the window, then spray paint a wooden dowel and stick it through.  The problem I had with these was that when I used a gauzy curtain it got snagged on the dowel which I had neglected to sand.  If you're hanging the scarves from rings, it might not be as bad, but better safe than snaggy, I always say...

I found this on the Container Store website.  It's snag-proof and can hold a ton of scarves, and it's cheap.  I tried to think of a way to craft it, but just gave up and bought it because I didn't know if I could do it without having scratchy parts that would mess up some of my already-messed-up scarves. I like the idea with the shower rings, too!
