Cheap and Good IKEA Medal Hanger

I have thought of buying a medal hanger to hang my slowly expanding medal collection for a long time. However, the price of the hanger ($40-$50+), always stop me from checking out my cart.

One day, I was shopping at IKEA and saw their door hanger.

Now, a nice looking medal hanger looks like this:

I would love to (and still want to) have this medal hanger, but I thought that the IKEA one looks like a good alternative to this. Firstly and most importantly, I will need not drill a hole into my wall (mom would hate this). Secondly, look at the price, it’s $4.90!

Costing $4.90 and weighing 0.59kg, I think it is a yes for me!

Like all IKEA products, I assembled it myself. Assembly is easy enough, so no worries here.

I placed the IKEA hanger at the front of the door, not the back of it, so that I can see the medals.

And, tada, my medals from 2016 looking shiny.


There are only 6 knobs to hang the medals but I think a little stacking should do no harm. I can always place my most memorable and newest medal at the front. A door frame should be able to hold up to 2 IKEA hangers so you can always buy another one if need be.
