Mod Podge Hangers

.

Stop by here to check out a fabulous charity drive/giveaway with The Original Scrapbox. With the right amount of clicks, they will have enough to donate to the Utah Children’s Justice Center.
. . . . . . . . . . . . . .

I like having quick and simple gifts on hand. Something not over the top, to gift away…..to someone who just needs a little pick-me-up.

Or how about making a coordinating hanger for a new outfit you just created for someone? How sweet would that be.

So here’s another simple something to add to that stash.

I just used Mod Podge to adhere some fabric to each side of the wooden hanger.

And then I trimmed around the hanger, cutting off all of the excess material. Then I let the Mod Podge dry underneath……and then I coated each side of the hanger (on top of the fabric) in a nice even coat of Mod Podge. Let dry completely. (I also thought later that spraying a clear coat of sealant over the whole thing would give it a nice finish. But without it looks great too!)

Now you’re all set to give them away…

**Post Edit: I found these hangers at Joann’s Fabric in their $ bins. Nice and inexpensive.

    Thanks so much for mentioning the charity drive/giveaway!
    I love those hangers. The top material is the same one I used as an accent fabric on the nursing cover I made. :)

    I made these hangers yesterday. I don't understand how you can get a clean cut with these. And when all was said and done, the mod podge was so rough that I wouldn't want to hang clothes on it cause it would snag. Please help me as I want to make these for my mom's house warming party. THanks.

    I made some and they look so cute, but I had the same problem. The edges are very rough. Any suggestions?

    Angela and Anonymous…..you know, I made these right before moving across country so I'm not sure where these even are. I wasn't even able to use them before all of the craziness happened with moving. I wonder if using a really fine grade sand paper would help to buff up the edges. Sorry about that. I should have tried them out first. Maybe even adding a thick coat of decoupage on them. Anyway, let me know if that works for you. And good luck!

    Just found a two-pack of these hangers on clearance at Jo-Ann for 97 cents. I think I might actually hang them in my laundry room after I'm done with them; they might really brighten the place up! :o)

    I think these will make such pretty hangers for a bride-to-be… how great would those pictures be of the dress before?! I LOVE this idea! And lucky for me I have a few friends who will be walking down the aisle soon who just might be getting some special hangers from me :)
