Even though Valentine’s Day was last Thursday, I never got a chance to publish my adorably V-DIY project…so I figured I’d share it with you now (better late than never, right?!)
Inspired by the boho hangers I made myself, I decided to make my nieces some festive fabric-covered hangers for Valentine’s Day. Since I live far away and don’t get to see them as often as I’d like, I like to send them packages on special holidays so they know their Auntie Jillie is thinking of them.
Coincidentally, last time I was home I bought a couple balls of vintage cloth stripes from an antique store (having no idea what I was going to do with them at the time) that was a mix of floral, red corduroy and tiny hearts. Perfect for this project, I picked up a pack of kids felted hangers and repeated the same process as my first project. Check it out…
What you Need:
- A hot glue gun
- Thin strips of fabric
What to do:
- Simply secure the end of a fabric strip to the middle of the hanger with hot glue
- Then tightly wrap the fabric around the hanger entirely covering the original coating
- Switch up the cloth sections whenever you please – just seal off one strip with hot glue & start another.
- When the original hanger is completely covered with fabric, simply secure the end once again with hot glue and there you have it!
Of course I couldn’t leave my new little nephew out…so I made him some hangers too!
Hand-made especially for you…because I’m hung up on love for you!
Happy belated Valentine’s Day! I hope your lives are filled with lots of love everyday!
