So.. I think this would go in this topic, sorry if it doesn't!

My boyfriend has mentioned he needs something to organize his hats (he has many).  I dont' really want to just go out and buy an everyday hat rack, but I have no crafty-juice running thru me right now. Therefore I'm not really sure where to start. I dont want to do much woodwork (I just don't have the tools)

I work at Joann's and havn't really looked around at everything specifically for this project, would something might be there that I can work with?

Thanks so much if you can help!

I don't know what kind of stuff JoAnns has these days since I think that Moses was a child the last time I was in one, but here are some of the things that popped into my head.

Drawer or cabinet knobs - wood ones are cheap and you can customize them any way you like.  Just screw them into a 1x4 or if you bf has a ton of hats then several 1x4's and attach the 1x4's to the wall.

Wooden spools - I don't even know if they make those anymore, but really any thread spool would do.  Just run a nail through the center and into a board and the bonus with this is you would have a place to have your thread too.

wooden dowels (or any kind of thin rod) and S hooks - drill holes in the rod or dowel on each end, and run a cord or heavy string through the holes, knotting below each dowel or rod, so that it looks like a ladder.  Hang from the ceiling and just hang each hat on an S hook on the rods or dowels.

I actually have that pattern, i'm using it for the closet stuff. All the things are pretty easy to back and fairly cheap since u can use broadclothe which is only about a buck something a metre.
