DIY :: A Place to Hang Your Hats

August 14, 2012

I have a small but growing collection of hats and a small (and definitely not growing) space to keep all of them. Downsizing really has me thinking of new ways to organize and the importance of surrounding myself with the things I love the most (I’m such a sucker for pretty & functional).  Having my hats on display make me so happy!

1. Glue your flare to the clothespin (I have about a thousand of these fabric flowers leftover from a different project, but you could really use anything. You’ll want to find something that is larger than the width of the clothes pin).

2. Attach the removable adhesive strip to the back center of the clothespin as directed on the packaging (so leave the “wall side” alone for now)

3. Lay out your hat collection (or picture collection, etc. These clips are a quick and easy way to hang all sorts of light stuff) to get a feel for what will look good once on the wall. Use this as a guide for attaching the clothespins to the wall.

4. If you didn’t get the layout just right, no worries! The clothespins can be easily moved around and still stay sticky enough to hold your goods. One of my hats is clipped and the other two are resting on top of the flower part. This works best for me because the two don’t have a wide enough brim to clip–plus it prevents any damage (of course, these are by no means vintage hats so I’m not taking a lot of precautions when displaying them.)

How do you display your hats? Any tips on where to find fun vintage hats?
