It’s no secret that I’m a huge fan of hats. I’ve got a growing collection of felt and straw ones that are like works of art in themselves. So when I discovered that I was favouring some and forgetting others, I knew it was time to take them all out from the depths of my closet and turn them in to practical art.
Not only does a hat feature wall look fun, but it’s also really useful. Every time I leave the house I’m prompted to wear a hat, and because I look at them daily I also don’t accidentally buy something I already own. This storage also makes sure that my hats stay in shape, and aren’t stacked together at the back of a cupboard.
- Measuring tape
- Hat hook, picture hook or adhesive strip hook. I used this hook from Bunnings.
- Start by laying all of the hats out on your bed or on the ground so you can visualise how you want them arranged.
- Using a measuring tape, measure out where you need to place your hat hooks. The hook needs to be positioned in line with the inside top centre of each hat.
- Put the hooks on the wall.
- Hang the hats!
So simple, so stylish! Now I’m off to my wardrobe to see what other items can be turned in to art – dresses perhaps? Or maybe jewellery? So many options!
