This was such an easy project- DIY Decorative Clothes Hangers! I have done so many DIYs here on the blog and I have to say this is one of my favorites.
Another great things about this project- you can totally make these on the cheap. I don’t know if you have ever priced decorative hangers- OMGoodness! I have seen decorative hangers priced as high as $25 each! I made these for around $2 per hanger.
I think these would also make a lovely gift idea….housewarming, shower, just because…..
I decided to make each hanger different, but I wanted the colors/patterns to compliment each other. I went with a romance theme.
What You Need:
Wooden Hangers (I used these)
Gold Spray Paint (optional)
Mod Podge (I used this)
Acrylic Paint (optional)
Painters Tape (optional)
Paint the hangers gold or the color of your choice. I painted every part of the hanger. I used a gold spray paint. If you wanted to get really fancy you could trim the edges in a different color.
Trace the hanger onto the scrapbook paper. I like to flip the paper over so I trace on the non-printed side. I traced one side and then the other since my hangers were longer than my paper.
Cut out the pattern and position the paper onto the hanger.
Remove the paper and apply a thin coat of Mod Podge to the hanger. (Only the portion that will be covered by the paper.)
Place the paper onto the hanger and carefully position.
Apply a thin coat of Mod Podge on top of the paper. Allow to dry and repeat. I did two coats. Once dry you may need to gently sand the edges.
Vóila (Wah-la)- you have a super cool set of decorative clothes hangers. Makes a great gift too!
