Creative DIY Hat Rack Ideas
Excellent Wall Mounted Branch Rack
To save your floor space, try this amazing idea. Get a sturdy branch and then mount it to your wall. The branch must be really strong since you’re going to hang your hats around it.
Add some strings to the branch that you will use to hang the hats.
Mount this unique and creative rack to the wall by using strong adhesive so that it won’t fall down and hurt anyone.
Industrial Styled Hat Rack
Black iron is one of the most amazing materials to build an industrial styled hat rack.
Instead of building a standing rack, use the black iron to create wall mounted hat racks that will leave you free spaces on the floor.
If you are going to use the rack to store your beach hats, make sure you leave enough space between the racks so your beach hats won’t touch each other but become a nice ornament on the wall.
Giant Ferris Wheel DIY Hat Rack Ideas
This idea is perfect for those who have only six hats to be stored on the rack. The old looking and rustic styled Ferris wheel is made of wood.
You may want to polish the wood in order to give it a fresher and smoother look.
Once you’re done polishing the wooden hat rack, you can hang all the six hats you have on it. If you have more hats, build some other Ferris wheel racks.

Here comes the idea that will be perfect for those who have lots of hats but limited space inside the closet. Simply hang your chain across your closet or room.
Then place hooks on the chain holes that you can leverage to hang your hat collections.

Mirror Hat Frame Idea
If you have too many hats, you will need some different mirrors to store them all. Your hats will be a nice frame for your mirror, the one with a wooden frame.

Rustic Styled Wooden Pallet Rack
If the idea above is impossible since there is not enough space for the doors, consider this one.

If possible, engrave the smaller boards with any antique design. Then connect all boards using adhesive or nails. Now you can mount it to the wall and then hang your nice hats on it.
