Space can be hard to come by in bedrooms and closets, especially in apartments. A great way to save space is to hang a clothing rack. And you can do it in a way to make it appear floating! It also makes super cute decor that you can hang your hats, belts, and favorite pieces of clothing from. Or if you’re a blogger, you can hang all the outfits you need to photograph that week. A hanging clothing rack doesn’t take up floor space so it will make your room feel less cluttered. It’s also super easy to make! You can use a tree branch like I did or a curtain rod, wooden dowel, or anything else that isn’t too heavy or easily breakable.
The end result will appear like it’s floating, how cool is that? Want to learn the trick? Keep readin’!
Make A Floating Clothing Rack
Step 1: Measure out the fishing line by holding it from the ceiling and cut it to the length you want the rod to hang. Cut two of these. Tie one piece of fishing line to the left side of the rod and tie the other piece to the right side of the rod. Make loops on the other ends of the line.
Step 2: Screw your hooks into either the ceiling or wall next to the ceiling and hook the loops you made on the fishing line onto the hooks in the wall. Then you’re ready to start hanging things on it!

I love using unordinary items as decor, like my bike. Well, there may be no other place to store my bike since we live in a small apartment but hey, it sure does look good! I also love using hats as decor. Put them on display, don’t hide them away in your closet.
Hanging a clothing rack or rod is a great space saver, decor piece, and organization tool. I like to hang my hats, belts, purses, and different outfits for the week. Of course, color coordinating makes the rack look even better. If you use a branch, you can get wooden hangers to match, it looks so much better than regular plastic hangers. Just remember, don’t put too much weight on the rod or else it might fall down on you. Try to keep it light. Next, try making a DIY hanging lampshade light or hanging jewelry holders.
