Purse and Scarf Hanger

Do you hang your purse from one of those coat hooks? I do and I can’t even count how many purse handles I have damaged by doing that and I didn’t even realize that the hooks were causing the damage. For my last birthday my in-laws spoiled me with a gift certificate that I used to get a very nice purse. I started to hang this purse on the door knob in the laundry room and after a few months I realized that the purse handles still looked like new and that’s when the light bulb went off. Using the door handle as a purse hanger wasn’t very practical, so I decided to make a new purse holder with the same shape of the door knob.

What you need:

  • A thick piece of wood
  • A fence post cap
  • Paint
  • Sponge Brushes
  • Sand Paper
  • Curtains rings
  • Hot Glue Gun
  • Color String
  • Metal Hooks

I wanted a fun bright and girly design.

I used my Cricut to create a Choose Joy Stencil.


I added a cute little button to the flower and traced the words with a black marker to make the words pop a bit more.

I put the fence post cap through the bottom of a plastic cup for an easier painting and drying process.

Pre-drill a hole to screw the post cap right in.

Originally this was only going to be a purse hanger, but I had to find a new solution to my Pinterest fail scarf project. You know, the one where you use curtain rings on a hanger to hang all your scarfs. Great idea, but mine ended up hanging all to one side which drove me crazy.

Stephanie from Simply Dream & Create did an awesome guest post of a Creative Scarf Hanger over on Titi Crafty and I thought that was the perfect solution to my scarf problem. So I implemented that I idea to my purse holder.

I played with the positioning on of the rings till I found a layout I liked. I a hot glue gun to set the rings in place.
