hanging ribbon organizer

Yippee! I love easy solutions like this! This was my box o' ribbons. I cringe a little just looking at it.

There was just no way to keep them neat and organized in a box. Last week, my hubby and I did some weeding out of things in our basement. In the pile to go to the attic, I spotted this (technically a pants hanger).

A light bulb went off in my head! I snatched it, and one night last week while watching So You Think You Can Dance, I got organized!

It was so simple! Just string all of your spools in the same direction (you want the ribbon to roll over the top of the spool). I even put on the few gift wrap ribbons I had. The long ribbons without spools I loosely looped/knotted on the bottom and then the smaller scraps I put in a ziplock bag, punched a hole under the seal and strung it on the hanger. Yay for a little more organization!


  1. good idea! I love the pants hangars and I have yet to use them for pants! Thanks for another great idea for them!

  2. Thanks for all of your nice comments!

  3. Awesome, I have a hanger like this and was just going to get rid of it!!! I will be using it now. :-)
