New Wives Club #21: transform dull coat hangers with pretty floral fabric scraps


DIY floral fabric hangers

Now with my New Wives Club posts I like to try and find craft projects that use up something you might have collected for your wedding, but I’m pretty picky when it comes to what ideas I think are worth sharing, which makes it more tricky.

Today’s DIY craft project is based on the idea that you might likely have some fabric scraps leftover from your wedding – perhaps you were busy sewing yards and yards of bunting – but I’m sure most of us who like to do a bit of crafting have a stash of fabric.

DIY floral fabric hangers

This idea is to transform those dull white plastic coat hangers into pretty floral ones, simply using a bit of tape and strips of fabric.  In the tutorial it mentions something call ‘floral jelly roll’, which I’ve not heard of, but I’m pretty sure that something like double-sided sticky tape would work just as well.

Don’t forget, there’s lots of lovely DIY ideas that have been features in the New Wives Club so do have a look and see if there’s any other you fancy having a go at.

Trátase dun proxecto DIY bastante absurdo se temos en conta que as perchas case nunca se ven, pero pode ser unha moi boa idea se temos un burro ou un armario aberto no cuarto. Ou se nos gusta saber que hai beleza aínda que non estea á vista. Para forrar as perchas corta a tela en tiras finas e envolve. Podes ver todo o proceso en The natural wedding company. […]

I love this idea, thanks for sharing! :)

FYI: A “Jelly Roll” is a set of already cut strips of fabric.
