How to organize belts using clothes hangers is super simple with a little DIY work.  All you need to do is drill a few holes into the bottom of a wooden coat hanger, screw in some hooks and you have the perfect DIY belt hanger organization that is sturdy, functional and best of all, space saving.  Once you’ve made one of these belt hangers, you’ll never want to use anything else to organize your belts!  Inspired by my DIY Clothes Hanger Jewelry Organization project, this makes a perfect gift for dad!!!!

Clothes Hanger Belt Organization

How to Make Belt Hangers:

  1. Find/Purchase wooden hangers to use for belt organizers.
  2. Mark the bottom of hanger where you’d like your hooks to be placed.  I used a sharpie marker and marked about a 1″ distance on one hanger and 2″ on another.  The nice thing about this project is that you can organize your hooks however works best for your belts.  If you have bulky belts, you might want lots of space in between the hooks.  If you have dainty belts, you might only want .5″ between the hooks.
  3. Drill a hole in each spot that you’ve marked so that it’s easy to screw in your hooks if you have a screw driver and drill bit.  If you don’t, you can just screw in your hooks, it will just take more elbow grease.
  4. Arrange your belts on the hooks.
  5. Hang belt hanger in closet and enjoy! {{or give it as a Father’s Day gift like my kids are planning!}}

  1. What a great idea! I have my belts on a hanger but they’re folded over the middle bar and they tend to fall off if I don’t buckle them.
