There are two important things for every soccer scarf owner to remember — how to wear your scarves and the best ways to display them. We can all agree that sporting your team’s custom scarf is the game day look, but what’s the best way to showcase your accessories off the field?
Don’t let your scarves collect dust in the closet. Store your soccer scarves around the house where you can admire them until the next game, tournament or fundraiser. Soccer scarves can function as home decor during the off-season. They’ll look great in your game room, garage, office or man cave. Kick up your storage skills and get creative with these five ideas for showcasing your game-winning scarf:
1. Draped Across the Wall
If you want to make a statement, you can pin your scarves directly to the wall for everyone to see. It only takes a few tacks to display your soccer scarf collection without damaging the material. They are a great conversation piece that shows off your personality and interests.
You can hang your favorites or cover the wall with your entire collection. To make your display even more eye-catching, you can arrange the scarves by color or pattern.
2. Displayed in a Frame
For our soccer scarf collectors out there, we know how important it is to keep your scarves in tip-top condition at all times. No dust, no wrinkles, no problem! Using frames and shadow boxes to store soccer scarves will keep them looking new for years to come. A glass frame protects your collection and looks clean and polished hanging on the wall.
You can create a one-of-a-kind display with unique frames and folding techniques. Here are a few ideas to inspire your soccer scarf gallery wall:
- Use different folding patterns to give variety to your prized scarf wall
- Add one, two, or even three scarves per frame — depending on the size
- Hang up your frames in a horizontal, vertical or diagonal pattern
3. Folded Over a Rod
One of the easiest ways to store your scarves is with a towel rack or curtain rod. Once the rod is fastened to the wall, you can fold your soccer scarves over the rod, and you’re finished! When the entire rod is covered, it looks like a wall of scarves.
This display technique looks sleek and uniform and makes an impact in any room. You can easily swap out different scarves as your collection grows. It takes only a few seconds to pull one off when game day arrives.
4. Hung on a Ladder
If you’re looking for an understated way to display your scarves, a wooden ladder could be the answer. Decorative ladders have become a trendy way to store throw blankets, and you can use the same idea to showcase your soccer scarves. Simply prop up the ladder against the wall and hang a soccer scarf or two across each rung.
The finished product looks simple and casual enough for any room of the house. You might even convince your family to let you keep your scarves in the living room.
5. Wrapped Over a Chair
If you have an extra chair in your game room or man cave, you can spice it up by draping one of your scarves over the top. It adds a sporty accent to an otherwise empty space. You can keep it subtle with one or two scarves or cover the entire thing. They’ll look great and provide a functional scarf to curl up with on chilly mornings. When game day arrives, you can grab it from the chair on your way out the door.
6. Arranged in a Glass Case
The ultimate way to display your soccer scarves is in a glass display case. You can use them in any room to show off your collection. They often include lighting to make your scarves stand out.
Some glass coffee tables also have a display area where you can showcase your collection. You can arrange your scarves beneath the glass and enjoy using the piece as a table as well. Instead of keeping your scarves in a closet, you’ll be able to admire them every day. They’ll make a great conversation piece when your friends come over to watch the big game.
