Scarves are my favorite type of accessory, so I have a ton of them – but I’ve never had a good way to store them. They’ve always been balled up in a drawer, only to emerge wrinkled and dingy. Until now! Keep reading to find out how to make a nifty wall-mounted scarf holder using wooden clothespins.
You Will Need:
- 30 Wooden Clothespins
- 3″ x 36″ x 1/4″ Piece of Balsa Wood
- Wood Glue
- Latex Paint
- Command Adhesive Strips
Begin by painting your clothespins using latex paint. Cover the top of each clothespin in a solid coat of paint, and then gently draw it down using a relatively dry brush to give it a painterly look. Let the paint dry.
Next, lay the clothespins out on the balsa wood. Make sure that they are evenly spaced… there should be about 3/4″ in between each pin.
Now begin gluing the pins down. Use a very thin coat of wood glue to ensure that the excess doesn’t ooze out around the edge of the pin. Make sure that they are all still evenly spaced and straight – wood glue dries quickly and permanently.
