The use of these hangers as towel bars would be more interesting if you used vintage ones with advertising printed or impressed on them and then hung them on interesting hooks - old metal schoolroom hooks, antique doorknobs, tiebacks, etc.
Buy the Wood magazine organizers from Ikea Mail station made of magazine holders. I've found, if you have a little patience, you can use cereal boxes to make your own magazine holders. Cut to desired size and decoupage with a 50/50 glue and water solution. 2 -3 layers makes it quite strong. I use paper grocery bags or used copy paper for decoupaging. Once completely dry, stain or paint.
Portable Hooks To create a belt rack that matches your other hangers (and doesn't require making holds in the wall), try this: Predrill a row of holes in alternating spots on both sides of a wooden clamp hanger, and screw in cup hooks. Make as many of these hangers as you need to accommodate your belts.
Chicken wire + clothes pins = pinboard. Or...use the same idea to hang oddly-shaped pieces of art that you can't find a frame for. Maybe a huge piece for a hall or something and use it like gallery wall. Hmm...
