We are still in college prep mode here: shopping, organizing, planning and creating small handmade items for my college-bound daughter. A couple of weeks ago, I made a vintage strip quilt; I loved the colors and vintage-vibe, so I used some of the same strips to create these sweet hangers.
On our most recent trip to Ikea, I picked up these sturdy wood hangers for $4.
After wrapping 8 of these hangers, I am in LOVE. Hopefully, my daughter will open her closet as she prepares for her day of classes and be reminded of some homeyness in the simple handmade goodies that hold her clothes.
Using a strip of fabric 1 inch in width helps it not buckle as you wrap; a thicker width can add some bulk and puckering. Keep the strips skinny.
A glue gun and your vintage strips are all the materials needed. Get in the zone; wrap and glue. Add a pom or tassel for some whimsy, and voila, a set of vintage wrapped hangers are ready to be gifted.
