Over the past few days, I worked out a really simple and inexpensive way to ‘dress-up’ your wire hangers. If you’re like me, your closet is always full of plain white wire hangers from the dry cleaner. I thought it might be fun to at least have the first few hangers I see when I walk in my closet decorated in some way.
First, I stamped on some spools.
Next, I created custom labels by stamping onto cotton tape and sticking it onto cotton seam tape.
I gently bent the curve of the hanger open, slipped on the spool, and then tied on the seam binding. That’s it!
Uh oh. Then I got adventurous and tried to make hanger ‘skirts’ to dress them up even more. For those of you that don’t know, I do not sew. Nada. Zilcho.
I play at sewing but have no idea what I’m really doing, so feel free to laugh with me at this part. I just cut a rectangle to fit over the hanger…
And then I didn’t even sew the edges….just tacked them together! I could SEW get an award for best cheating job ever! But they actually looked kinda cute.
This could be a cute gift. You could pack up several of the spools, labels, and extra pieces of tape with simple instructions.
Up next, my young artist has been working on some fabulous fall foliage! Can’t wait to show you her autumn art work!
