Mother's Day Gifts To Make - Pretty Covered Hangers

Pretty Covered Wire Hangers

Where would we be without our Moms? Our first memories are probably of none other than the woman who gave and did the most for us, loved us more than anyone else, and shaped our lives to help us become what we are today. Mom. Mother's Day should be every day but since Hallmark specified May 10th as the official day to celebrate our Mothers, let's make it even more special with a handmade gift. 

These easy to cover hangers are more than just a simple gift. Fabric covered hangers keep tops and dresses from slipping off. The fabric covering absorbs excess moisture and the thinness of the wire hangers allows for more compact storage in the closet. Cover those wire hangers (that dry cleaners send your clothes home with) with pretty scraps of fabric. Decorate with bits of ribbon, lace and silk flowers. A thoughtful, useful and environmentally friendly diy gift for mom.

  5. Use up your remnants and make a gift what could be better? Use the leftovers and make matching hangers for your creations.

  7. I just looked at this again - Great to make a closet pretty but I'm also going to add some snaps so that I can hang necklaces and other jewelry items - easier for me to find them!
