Ruler hanger idea

September 17, 2011

I was catching up on emails this morning and followed a link to a gadget that sparked my own idea. Don't you love it when that happens? 

A few months ago, I picked up these vintage swinging kitchen towel bars for 75¢ a piece. 

I squeezed it to release it from the wall bracket part. 

I picked up tons of packages of these rings last year when they were on clearance. I knew I would find uses for them. 

Slide them on and replace the bar.

Ta-da! A way to hang rulers, patterns or anything else you can think of. 

All that's left to do is to clean up the hangers and find a place to hang them up. 

Have a great weekend!


  1. Well, aren't you resourceful! I love repurposing items - must be the "Dutch" in me!

  2. Looks great. Don't you just love new ideas? How about if you slide the bar through the hole in your rulers?
    Have a GREAT weekend!!!!

  3. I love your idea! I'm making a lot of quilts with strips lately. The clips would work great for keeping the strips wrinkle free and ready for use. Thanks for posting your idea!

  4. This is a GREAT idea...I need to make one of these...then, patch the dozens of holes that I poked in my walls =P

    thanks for sharing!


  5. Yea! Too bad for me I don't have either item, but I'll be on the lookout ~

  6. Wow! That's cool!

  7. You are so clever girlie! What an awesome idea!

  8. I am totally jealous! I just can't find a good way for storing rulers, which could possibly mean I have too many! Blessings, Marlene
