Well, this hat hanger out of clothespins could actually actually hang pretty much anything, not just hats. Simple, cheap, diy goodness!
This is one of the projects I did to help my younger girls organize their room better, after we decluttered of course.
E. has lots of hats and so I wanted to figure a way to hang them better. At the time they were all stacked on the bed posts, and falling over onto the floor all the time. This works a little bit better, I think
I went downstairs and found an extra piece of wood about yeah long. (actual length is relative to what kind of wood you have available to use, how much room you have, and how many things you need to hang up…it really doesn’t matter…ours is roughly 24 inches).
We chose to paint our wood and our clothespins just to make them look a little nicer, but that probably isn’t even necessary. I was winging it (you can probably tell from the photos).
I had this nifty bottle of paint left over after about 8 years!
This is my little bottle of metallic paint that is something like the “Widow’s cruse of oil” in 1 Kings 17…I bought it about 8 years ago, and painted oh-so-many things with it, and still it’s only about 1/4 of the way gone. It’s a miracle! It makes everything look as though I stained it, but with a slight metallic luster.
Then I pulled out some wooden clothes pins, but I suppose if you have the plastic kind, they’d work too.
We painted the wood and clothespins to match. Probably not a good idea to paint clothespins, as that hindered how easily they opened and closed, but I painted them anyway. And they were a pain to paint. Keep that in mind.
Later that day, after all was dried, I took a hot glue gun, and glued the clothespins at specific intervals away from each other.
We hung them up with screws and wall anchors on the wall, although a couple of picture hangers on the back would probably work too.Pin It
