Hello everyone! Zinia back here and today I have a really fun spring décor project to share with you!
This is an upcycling project so we are going to use an old wooden hanger for our base and we are going to transform it from dull and boring to fun and colorful!
The first step is to clean the old hanger very well. If it has little bits poking out, making sure to lightly sand the surface to make it smooth. Once that’s done, you want to cover the whole wooden area with gesso to prep it for our paint. I used a mix of Vicki Boutin paints to create this coral shade that I used on my hanger.
Once the paint was dry, I used Vicki Boutin and Jane Davenport paint markers to create a colorful stripped pattern on the hanger. I also used a gold paint pen to color the metal part at the top.
Now that the hanger is bright and happy, it is time to make it functional. Pick your favorite binder clips, clothespins and any other sort of clips and adhere them on the base of the hanger. That turns our hanger into a fun organizer.
You can use this for your favorite office supplies, put a notepad for shipping lists in your kitchen, organize your keys and much more.
We can still take it a step further by adding some embellishments! I picked a variety of American Crafts fabric and paper flowers and colored them using Jane Davenport Inkredible inks. Once they were dry, I attached them on the hanger with some hot glue to make sure they will stay in place. Now our hanger is even brighter. To go with all the florals, I decided to embellish it with a butterfly and a few other spring themed ephemera pieces.
I placed this hanger next to my desk so I filled the clips with a sticky note pad, a few rolls of washi tape and a bunch of things that make me happy.
I really hope you enjoyed this project and you’ll make your own happy hanger using your favorite supplies.
