DIY Shorts Hanger

5 Minutes

Unfortunately summer days are winding down, but don't be too sad yet. I have an interesting DIY idea that I found while browsing Pinterest...including shower curtain rings. First it might seem strange but once you see what we do with the rings, you will want to join in on the organizing fun!
You know that little bar under the main clothing bar in most closets? I never found a use for it until now. To start with, go to Wal-Mart and purchase a 12 pack of cheap shower curtain rings, like below (only 98 cents). Next, open one up slide the loops of your shorts around the ring, hang up, AND THAT'S IT.
Simple enough, huh?
Check out my pictures below to get a better idea!

Which bar you ask? The smaller one under the main bar.
Tip: Fold the shorts with the zipper in the back, grab the two side loops, and place around the shower curtain ring.

    Will this work on jeans also?

      Yes anything with belt loops.

      Jeans are heavier than shorts, so you might need to use metal shower curtain rings instead of plastic. Jeans are longer, so you would need a longer space , but it might work. Best wishes 😇
