It’s good to have a few nice belts in your wardrobe, but you may not want them taking up room in your dresser or elsewhere. This simple belt rack takes up very little space and costs next to nothing to make.

This design, from Martha Stewart, can hang on the clothing rack in your closet or even on the back of a door. All you need is a wooden hanger (with a wood support bar along the bottom), a power drill, and some cup hooks. Drill small, evenly spaced holes in the support bar on the bottom about 2 inches apart and then screw the hooks in. You can get wooden clothing hangers for about a buck apiece and get the cup hooks at a local hardware store for only a few dollars. The design is simple, but it’s efficient and fairly easy on the eyes.
