The Pursuit of Scarf Tying Happiness - Scarf Inspiration and Ideas

Some of my Favorite Ways to Wear a Scarf

Double Knot Wrap Center scarf around neck bringing both ends forward.  Tie a knot on each side toward each end of scarf.  Loop around neck and bring forward letting knotted ends rest on your chest.

Twisty Scarf Loop Begin by twisting the entire scarf. Carefully wrap around neck, holding tight not to let go or the twists will fall out. Bring both ends in the front and tie a knot to secure it.

Boho Loop Tie Center scarf around neck with both ends hanging in the back. Then bring both ends forward and tie a loose knot in the front.

Double Wrap Neck Knot Wrap the scarf around your neck twice with both ends ending up in the front. Tie a knot in the front and fluff and twist to your preference.

Infinity Loop Knot Take an infinity Scarf and place around your neck and loop again around your neck leaving one loop longer than the other. On the longer loop make a knot which creates yet another loop hanging at the bottom.

Are you a Scarf Hoarder?

Do you own tons of scarves?

Do you find yourself sifting through piles of scarves trying desperately to find just the right one?

If you answered yes to any of these questions, then you are definitely a Scarf Hoarder. And it is time seek the help you so truly deserve. Well... Here i am with some fantastic Scarf storage ideas which will wipe your Scarf Chaos away.

I love this and it is so simple to make. You just need to find the space to do it. What is awesome about the location in this photo is the fact that the space used was worthless space and could not be used for anything else. We all have this kind of space in our houses and/or closets. You may be thinking tensions rods. I am going to tell you NO, NO and NO. Tension rods will not support the weight of these scarves. I don't know your extent of your scarf hoarding problem, but I guarantee you that a tension rod will not support the weight.

You will need to install some type of bracket and a dowel or rod. Look for a bracket with a quick and easy removal of dowel or rod. If you are not really into using power tools then continue reading because I have some more solutions to your Scarf Storage issues.

Did I mention ... EASY!

Ways to Store Scarves

I absolutely love this idea and no tools are required, as a matter of fact absolutely no skill is required.

All you need is some Shower Rings (You may even have some laying around) and a Hanger. Place the rings on the hanger and slide your scarves through the ring and hang. So easy.
