How to Make Two(2) Custom Wood Scarf Holder

5 Materials

I love making things that I can use for organizing different items in my home. This one was no exception. This custom wood scarf holder DIY project was so much fun to make, and I was able to give it to a relative for their daughter’s room. It was a win-win in my book. Here is the step by step instructions on how I made this scarf holder. I hope you enjoy it.

First, I started out with this.  You can use as many pegs as you like.  I thought I would use four because it came in a package of two.  The wood was from an IKEA bed support that was no longer being used.  I removed the strap and took out the staples.  Then, glued on the words at the top making sure that it is flush with the back of the wood plank. I then sanded the wood and drilled holes in the wood for the pegs. I glued together the $1.00 each word (great deal) to the wood.
Measure out the entire length and evenly space the drill holes top to bottom and left to right.
This is how it looked after I glued the words on and then added the pegs to it. 
To unify the color, I went to town spray painting.  First, I primed with black spray paint and then I did 2 coat spray paint.  Drying between coats. Note: I also spray painted other signs to go around the room.

I then added hooks to the back of the main piece of wood and mounted it on the wall.  Here are the finished two scarf holders I created. 
Here's the final product! Visit the blog for additional tips and a printable checklist.
