These elegant clothing hangers were created by Becca at Lady Face Blog. They're like friendship bracelet-clothing hanger hybrids.
Supplies: a hanger with a bar (preferably a wooden one), four colors of embroidery floss or thin yarn, and scissors.
1. Cut a piece of embroidery floss about 36” long, and then cut a piece of each of the remaining colors of embroidery floss to the same length.
2. Tie the bundle of embroidery floss around the bottom rung of the hanger and knot it in place. Be sure to leave about 1” of embroidery floss at the end of the knot so you’ll be able to hide the ends.
3. Select your first color of embroidery floss. With the bar of the hanger vertical and the hook of the hanger to your right, hold the remaining pieces of embroidery floss and the ends from the knot flush with the hanger bar. Then, take the selected piece of embroidery floss, bring it to the left, and then over the hanger bar, forming what looks like a “4”. Next, bring the end of the embroidery floss around the back of the hanger, and through the “4” shape. Pull tight to make your first knot.
4. Continue the above step with your first color until you have a section of color the length of your liking. When you are ready to switch to the next color, simply bring the color you were working with back to flush with the hanger bar, select the next color of embroidery floss, and repeat the above step with that color. Continue these steps, alternating colors to your liking, until you reach the end of the hanger bar.
5. As you work, you will need to add additional lengths of embroidery floss to the existing ones. To do so, simply cut another 36” of that color and tie the new length of embroidery floss to the older one, and then trim the ends to about 1/2". Be sure to think ahead, so you can hide the knot under the other colors of embroidery floss as you work.
6. When you reach the end of the hanger bar, tie a tight knot around it, and trim the ends.
Voila! A hanger worthy of one of your favorite garments.
