I haven’t been crafty in a long time, but I would like to share a novel way of hanging your silk scarves. Why let your beautiful scarves sit in the drawer? Take them out, display them, and let all who pass by admire the colorful array of silks! Not only can you use this system for women, make it work for your hubby as well and hang all his ties! It’ll make the morning so much easier to match your attire!
Inspiration: Hermès Scarf Hanging System
Ok… I have a CONFESSION to make – YES, I’ve been visiting the Hermès website more often ever since I came back from my trip to Shanghai. I do promise you that I will not go down the H-road yet… Anyhow with my recent Hermès gift, I wanted to see how much my scarf costs in the USA or Canada in comparison to Chinese retail price. Then I stumbled on this Scarf Hanging System which kinda shocked me that for four measly magnets, it costs $320?!?! Their magnetic clasps also look like they are inspired by garter belts… So if you want to do a DIY project with some old garter belts, I’m sure these will work great. However, I’ve come up with an even easier system.
– Magnetic strips or buttons
– Decorative sequins, rhinestones, beads…etc
– Ruler/Tape measure (optional)
Magnetic strips – 1$
Decorative stuff – 2$
Total = 3$ for at least 10 magnetic hangers!
This is more than 100X the savings compared to Hermès Scarf System of 320$$$ which only allows you to hang 4 scarves!
Time – 30 minutes
Measure desired length of the magnets to be used. You should also correlate with how big your decorative jewels are to be placed on these magnets. In my case, 4 pearls or rhinestones measure exactly 1 inch in length, so I would cut my magnetic tape into 1 inch pieces.
You will need 2 pieces of 1 inch magnets for each hanger (makes sense right? lol). One piece you’re going to stick onto the wall or somewhere that you plan to hang your scarves. The other piece is the decorative one. I’ve pre-cut my rhinestones and pearls which have adhesive backs as well. Peel back the white paper on the magnets and place your decorations here.
Once you have all your magnets decorated, it’s time to assemble them on the walls!
Lastly…. Taaaddaaaaa! That was so simple!
Note: Depending on how ferromagnetic your magnets are, some heavier silk scarves may need 2 magnets to hold them up.
These magnets are also not meant to hang your heavy duty cashmere and wool scarves…
