So this looked easy enough! I gathered my supplies (which I already had all of them)! 10 coat hangers, wire cutters, scissors, tape, spray paint and 2 - 12x12 sheets of scrapbook paper.
First, I cut off the cardboard tube on the bottom of the hanger. I cut it in half and then pulled and twisted until it came off.
|I save everything (I have the cardboard tubes in a box for hopefully a future project).|
|Bending the hangers.|
|It was beautiful outside, so I placed all the hangers on an old sheet of poster board.|
|I sprayed one side, let it dry and then flipped them over and sprayed again.|
Once the hangers were dry, I brought them in and started making the "collar" for the hangers. Just a little pizazz!
Step 1 - Slide paper over hanger, folded side away from hook of hanger.
Step 2 - Fold sides of paper back, to make a triangle.
Step 3 - Fold remaining sides over existing triangle (step 2) and tape or glue in place.
Finished -You now have a finished triangle.
**Hint: When you are making these collars, make sure to face the hanger the same way each time so they will all be finished on the same side.**

I had to test it out to see how well these little hangers work, and I was very pleased! With my extensive shoe collection, I'm just going to have to make myself a set of this handy dandy hangers! I tried and you can hang flip flops, heels, and even flats off the ends.
