My husband gets his work clothes dry cleaned every week, so we have a million wire hangers in the closet begging to be reinvented into something amazing.
After a brainstorming session I came across some gorgeous gold cord that my grandma gave me and I knew that it was meant to be!
Wire coat hanger
Pliers with wire cutting function
Yarn or decorative cord
Cut off the top of the hanger and discard.
Straighten out the wire hanger using your pliers.
Then shape the hanger wire into letters. The wire is thick and bending it will take some effort.
Don’t worry if the wire coating comes off. You won’t be able to see the chips once it’s covered with the decorative cord.
When you finish the “e” bend the rest of the wire back to act as a stand.
Tweak the shape of letters if necessary. I played around with the “L” for awhile.
Add a small drop of hot glue to the end of the “L.”
Firmly attach your yarn or cord to the hot glue.
Wrap the cord tightly around the wire. After about an inch add another small dab of hot glue to the wire.
Continue to glue and wrap.
Trim off the end of the cord with a sharp pair of scissors.
Now find a place to display!
