As an apartment dweller without a single closet (yup, you heard me correctly — no storage at all), I am very familiar with the industrial wire rolling rack. I’ve learned to keep my clothes tidy and presentable at all times, but what about my hangers? I invested in solid wood hangers recently, but they lack a certain specialness. Also, I’ve noticed that shirts and dresses with thinner straps slide right off of the smooth wood. Today’s DIY project not only keeps clothing on the hanger with friction, but also can give your closet a personalized touch.
DIY Ribbon Wrapped Clothes Hangers
- clothes hangers
- glue gun and glue sticks
Apply a strip of hot glue along the seam of the back of the hanger. Press ribbon onto the hot glue carefully, making sure that the edge of the ribbon is lined up with the seam on the back of the hanger. Allow the glue to cool before moving on to the next step.
Wrap ribbon around the hanger, making sure that it overlaps. Use hot glue as needed to secure the ribbon, especially around curves.
Keep wrapping the ribbon tightly. At the corner of the hanger, apply more hot glue and align the edge of the ribbon with the bottom of the hanger so that all of the wood is covered.
Continue wrapping the hanger in ribbon and repeat the steps for covering the corner of the hanger. Once you’ve reached the top of the hanger, cut the ribbon, apply more hot glue (ensuring the wood is covered completely), and press the ribbon into the glue.
