Upcycled coat hangers

Upcycled coat hangers

I’ve completed another upcycling project.

I had a few wooden coat hangers at home that I couldn’t use because the ends dug into my tops too much and misshaped them. I didn’t want to throw them away because they’re so much stronger than the horrible plastic ones you get, so I decided to prettify them instead.

I bought some wadding online for around £3.50. I wound strips (approximately 3cm wide) around each hanger. The texture of the wadding enabled the strips to stay in place without me having to secure them.

I then crocheted a rectangular cover and attached it over the hook, sewing up the ends and crocheting along the long seam.

I added a flower to finish it off.

I’ve since completed another two hangers and I have a few more still to do.

As well as putting something back into everyday use, it’s a great stash buster.
