I love to have tons of hangers in my cupboard. Literally I like to collect all sort of hangers: plastic hangers, wooden or wire. But many of the hangers I just dont use it and they occupy space.
So, if you are like me who has a ton of hangers on hand and are looking for a new DIY project, then this DIY collection is just for you. And, if you don’t have hangers to use but you still want to do the DIYs, check your local thrift store to buy some hangers.
The good news is that you don’t need to have exceptional skills to make DIY craft items with hangers.
Here are 8 ideas that will introduce you to the various DIY possibilities to reuse hangers.
1. Suit Hanger Turned Glasses Rack
Always misplacing yours sunglasses or reading glasses? The pant part of an old wooden suit hanger is perfect for keeping your glasses organized. Repurpose any wooden hanger to hang your glasses. Try using the pant bar of a flat wooden suit hanger to hang your eyewear. Always know where your glasses are when they are all hung in one place. Hang from coat rack by front door so your sunglasses are ready to go when you are! It’s the perfect, and cheapest DIY way to avoid losing or breaking your glasses. Source/Tutorial: onlyhangers
2. Scarf Hanger
Are you a secret scarf hoarder? Are they wadded up in drawers or piled in the bottom of your closet? Whether you’ve got an entire collection or just a few, you’ll want to make our DIY scarf holder by reusing old hangers. First, check your coat closet for one of those nice wooden hangers—we know you’re bound to find one! If you have none to spare, just head to your local discount store. Once you have the right hanger follow this step by step tutorial for further instructions. Turning a clothing hanger into a scarf/accessory holder is a great and useful idea. The tutorial uses a plastic coat hanger, but I would suggest one more option, you can use a wire hanger too. Perhaps you could cover the wire with yarn or fabric first.
