There are two things that you should know about me:
- I have a lot of hats – Beanies, Wide Brim, Baseball caps, etc. I love them all!
- I don’t like putting holes in my walls – Unless I absolutely have to use a nail, I will always try to use Command Hooks or something else instead.
So when I wanted to make a hat display for all of my hats, I knew I didn’t want anything that would need a lot of nail holes. I began my hunt on Pinterest, of course, and found SO many cute ideas! My favorite one, however, is the one I am about to explain to you. I sent a picture to my Dad to ask him if he could help me and he said “EASY! YOU DON’T NEED MY HELP!” …. what? I ALWAYS need his help!!
But let me tell you guys.. It IS so easy!! With these four items and about 10-15 minutes, you can have a hat display just like mine!

- 3/4″ Copper Pipe – This can be purchased from your local Home Depot. Mine is 3′ in length but you can choose the length to fit your own space as needed.
- Clothes Pins
- Nail (or something else to hang it)
- Cut a piece of twine three times the length of your pipe. I cut an 8′ piece of twine for my 3′ copper pipe. You will most likely end up having excess after this step so I recommend measuring it before you cut it just to make sure you have your desired length.
- Take your cut twine and lace it through your pipe. Tip: Clip one of your clothespins to the end of your twine and drop it through the pipe quick and easily. It tends to get caught if you try to slide it through.
- Take the two ends of your twine and tie a knot to form your triangle. This is where it will hang from your nail. Make sure your knot is extra tight. Then slide the twine until your knot is inside of the pipe so it cannot be seen.
- Hang your twine triangle and pipe using your nail or other hanging item
- Take the end of your twine roll and tie a knot to your pipe. I chose to do three twine lines but this is personal preference. You can do 2, or even 5 if you want a really layered look for your hats! I cut each line of twine down to the floor but this is also your personal preference based on the number of hats you have and the look you are going for!
- Lastly, hang each of your hats on your twine using your clothespins. I used smaller clothespins because I didn’t want them showing too much, but I would recommend using larger clothespins if they are heavier in weight. Some of mine are a little heavier and I had to use two clothespins for them to hold without falling.
I’m always up for doing a fun DIY project! This one was super fun and easy to do. I have seen others create their own hat display using a stick or other unique items! Such a fun way to add to your space!
