You can never have too many hats. Well, unless you live in the desert or somewhere that’s really humid. Or give them all away to Goodwill because you have a problem with hoarding things for no reason other than the fact that you’re just “too damn poor” to buy an eight-story house and fill it with three hundred hats. (In which case, hats off to you! We could all learn a thing or two from your thriftiness and/or eccentricity).
Assuming you’re not one of those aforementioned hat-less folk, and you want to find new and interesting ways to store your hats, why not try creating a hat wall in your home? Here’s how:
- Choose a wall in your home that you want to use for your hat wall. It can be any wall, but it’s best if it’s a wall that isn’t used very often or is hidden from view.
Tip: Hang your favorite and frequently worn hat or cap in a convenient spot to grab and go!
- Decide how many hats you want to hang on your hat wall. You can hang as few or as many hats as you want.
- Collect some old hooks, nails, and screws and use them to hang your hats on the wall. You can either hammer the nails into the wall and then screw the hooks into the nails, or you can use adhesive hooks that don’t require any drilling.
Whichever method you choose, just make sure that the hat wall is secure.
If you’re worried about your hats staying securely in place, there are several other options for how to hang them up. You can get a bar from Ikea and screw it into the wall, or get a 1-inch board from Home Depot and cut it to the size you need. Then use push pins, clothespins, or magnets to hang your hats on the board.
- Hang up your hat wall and admire your handiwork! Now you can easily find a hat to wear for any occasion.
So there you have it! A simple guide on how to create a hat wall in your home. Now go get creative and have some fun!
