Dry Cleaner Hanger Valentine Wreaths
"Do you have dry cleaner hangers hanging in your closet? Normally, I toss them in the recycling bin but this time 'round, I turned them into some heart-shaped holiday decor to bring love to my front door!"
Estimated CostUnder $10
Time to CompleteIn an evening
- Dry cleaner hangers
- Fabric mesh
- Wire cutters
Shape the dry cleaner hangers into a heart shape
Using wire cutters, cut off the hanging end of the dry cleaner hanger
Cut strips of fabric mesh and wrap around the hanger to cover it
Using pliers, fold the snipped end of the hanger toward the heart shape, and continue to cover with mesh
Once covered, now the fun! Begin to dress up your heart with additional mesh in whatever look you like best. In my example, the red heart was created with lots (and lots) of mesh ties; the link pink heart was created by wrapping layers of mesh around it and securing it with little mesh ties; and the fushia heart was created by loosely gathering the mesh and securing the gathers with small mesh ties.
Add a hanging ribbon and welcome love to your front door!
