DIY Hat Wall

Hats seem to be what elevate an outfit these days so why not have them easily accessible?  I wasn’t much of a hat lover until the end of 202o.  I always felt that my head was too big and maybe a hat would accentuate that, no?  Now we are in 2022 and I think it was all in my head as I wear them all the time.  I especially love reaching for one on 3rd + 4th-day dirty hair.

Before I would keep them stored in boxes and would go through the hassle of taking out the boxes and then putting them away.  It would sort of getting me out of the mood of wearing the hat.  So I started to think about how I can display these in a cute way and still have them within reach.  In my line of work, I need to be able to grab + go or it won’t happen at all.  C’mon, my whole life’s motto is “make it easy and attainable“, amiright??


I always pick the brains of my blogger friends on how they hand or display their hats.  They come up with all kinds of unique ways.  But if you don’t know me by now, I like something that isn’t going to take all day to do and will be so easy.  Well, it’s time I show you friends and I feel you may already have all the supplies in your home.

One thing I love about this DIY Hat Wall is how many different ways you can display your hats.  You can separate them further apart, hang rows across, hang rows vertically like I did…so much inspiration.  No matter if you have a larger or smaller space to work with I think you’ll find this DIY to be so helpful + versatile.  I highly recommend you visit Pinterest so you can find a design that better suits what you are looking for, but here is how I created my DIY Hat Wall!


What you’ll need:

  • a piece of ribbon or burlap – I used twine
  • a nail or I used command hooks (3lb)
  • clips/clothespins – I used clothespins
  • hammer if you use nails

Directions: Measure the length of the area you want to hang hats and cut a piece of twine to that length with a few inches extra to tie a knot – trim the bottom if needed.  I eyeball everything by the way…stick the command hook making sure they are even across.  Double knot your piece of ribbon or string around the hook. Hang your first hat on top of the hook then use clothespins to clip on the remaining hats to fill your space. That’s it!

I looped the twine around the clothespin and made a knot so the pin wouldn’t slide down and it would be secure.

I personally LOVE how it turned out – it only took about 20 minutes to create.  It also makes that little corner in my office look so much better.  If you end up creating your own DIY Hat Wall let me know how it goes.  You can tag me @ninamarieblogs in photos on Instagram too!
