My colleague Kayla requested hanger crafts in the comment section of last week’s wood pallet post, and since I’m a people pleaser, I did not want to disappoint. Lucky for me, wooden hangers and coat hangers in particular are a crafting goldmine. Joan Crawford was famously down on wire hangers, but they too can be put to good use as I found out from my Pinterest perusing. (Maybe she would have liked them more if she knew how to repurpose them?) Take a peek at my finds and tell me which you’d like hanging around in your home!
A coat rack…made of coat hangers? This idea from Replayground is very meta, but you gotta admit that it makes a certain amount of sense (hats on the top, scarves or coats draped on the wire hooks) and looks sculptural to boot.
This hanger craft could prove very fruitful, literally. Wooden coat hangers sans hooks form the “ribs” of a modern fruit bowl. Get the tutorial from Bosch‘s website and artfully arrange the finished product on a sleek countertop for just the right effect.
Don’t feel like having all those photos, posters and art prints professionally framed? There’s something effortlessly cool and boho about using wooden pant hangers to display art instead, as Meg Lewis of Apartment Therapy has done here. Instant gratification never looked so good.
