Are you ready for a new DIY tutorial that is utterly delightful? Read on to discover our step-by-step instructions to create DIY hangers, perfect as we look towards fall and winter!
Every summer, I like to dig into my closets. It’s a great big mess of out-with-the-old and in-with-the-new. I spend a whole day pulling everything out, sorting, making donation piles, dusting, washing, and then putting it all away.
This week, my craft inspiration hit me when I tackled our coat closet. It’s a tight little space next to our front door that serves both the purpose of holding our coats, and also the coats of guests. I wanted to make our little coat closet fall and winter ready by adding my own personal touch inside: DIY hangers!
How to Make DIY Hangers
DIY hangers are an easy way to add a small detail that makes a big impact. Wouldn’t it be divine to read a pleasant little greeting while hanging up your coat? I thought it was the perfect little surprise for my family and my guests this fall and winter.
And, guess what? DIY hangers are amazingly simple to create!
- Wooden Hangers: You can find these at any discount store such as Target or Wal Mart. I found mine at Ikea.
- Waterproof Ink: Easily found at any craft shop. I found mine at Hobby Lobby. Make sure that it is waterproof!
- Clear Acrylic Spray: If you cannot find waterproof ink, there is still hope! You can finish your hangers with a coat of clear acrylic spray. I found waterproof ink so I didn’t have to use the spray.
- Rubber Stamps: Rubber stamps that work best for this project are those less than 1 inch tall.
A few examples of sayings you could use for your DIY hangers are:
- Home is where you hang your hat (and coat)
- Hang up your coat and stay a while
- Home sweet home
- Welcome home
- There is no place like home
- Make yourself comfortable
