DIY Hat Wall Display

2 Materials
20 Minutes

This DIY Hat Wall Display is easy to create and a great way to decorate a blank wall with all of your favorite hats!
Happy new year!Today I’m sharing my first post for the new year and the new decade.And I’m really excited about how it turned out!Yesterday I convinced Roger to help me hang the  metal hooks I bought last year in our closet so that I could display all of my hats.
And yes, I could have totally done this on my own, but I trusted Roger’s balance more than my own to operate a drill on a tall ladder.Luckily it took under half an hour to get this hat wall display all set up.
Creating this DIY hat wall display was as easy as…
  1. Placing  painters tape where I wanted the hooks to be drilled into the wall.
  2. Using a measuring tape to make sure the painter’s tape marks were evenly spaced.
  3. Drilling the hooks into the wall.
  4. And finally arranging the hats on the hooks.
Before we started Roger wasn’t so sure about how it would turn out, but he admitted when I was finished that it looked really good.Thanks Rog!

    How do you prevent the hats from sagging after hanging for a while?

      I have a few old hats I display with newspaper or packing paper wadded up inside to keep their shapes. You could also cut cardboard and tape together to keep hats shapes.🙂

    I have my hats hanging in my entry hall of my apartment. When I walk out I grab the hat I want & coming in I gang it back up. I have my nephews hats hanging lower,so when I have him over he does the same,choose a hat going out & hanging it back up coming in! No hats laying around

    Love the balance this adds to the black ladder in the corner, too! Great idea! I think I like the ladder best of all and you could display ANYTHING beside it, from hats to jewelry!
