Scarf Organizer

My scarves used to just sit in a drawer all disorganized. Then, one day, I saw an idea on Pinterest for a scarf organizer.

What you’ll need:

  • Hanger
  • Shower curtain rings
  • Hot glue gun
  • Scarves
  • Decorative string or fabric

It’s really pretty easy. Just glue the rings on to the hanger.

I didn’t like the way it looked so I tied some spare fabric around the glue spots. This isn’t necessary, it’s just about what you want it to look like.

When you’re done and the glue is dried, put your scarves on and hang wherever you like.

DIY Pen Organizer

This is a craft I saw on Pinterest. Or rather, there was a 50 things to do with toilet paper rolls and I liked this idea because my pens are currently disorganized in a large shoe box. Anyone that knows me knows I have way too many pens, so this project just made sense.

What you’ll need:

  • a shoe box
  • Elmer’s glue
  • an abundance of paper clips
  • a bunch of toilet paper rolls
  • spray paint
  • a ridiculous amount of pens
  • wrapping paper or other decorative paper
  • Mod Podge

Basically, I started by finding a box and saving toilet paper rolls when we finished them. Of course I’m impatient so I asked Joe’s mom to save them from her house too. She loves recycling so as long as they’re not in the trash she’s willing to help. It took me maybe a week to collect all the rolls. I’m not entirely sure, I wasn’t keeping track.
I started off by putting a little Elmer’s glue around the bottom of a roll and the sides that would be touching another roll or the wall of the box. In order to make sure they stayed secure while drying I paperclipped the whole thing together.

Once the glue was dry I spray painted it because the box and rolls are ugly. I just used whatever spray paint I had left from previous projects.

I didn’t like the look of the spray paint so I covered it in wrapping paper to make it look a little more interesting. Once all that was done I put my pens in and voila.

Believe it or not, I didn’t have to buy a single pen or pencil to fill it. I couldn’t even fit all of what I do have.
