Wire Hangers


Happy New Week Lovelies!

Do you have wire hangers around your house?
We've got quite a few, and while they are useful
for some clothes, for others, they leave
little corners on the shoulder areas.
They also don't hold clothes very
well -- dresses easily slip off.
What a blah.

So this week, I've concocted
some ideas to turn them
from blah to TADA!

Straighten the hangers and cut them
into pieces using a wire cutter.

You'll also need a piece of Styrofoam
{from supermarket/on-line packaging},
scissors and a glue gun.

Cut the Styrofoam into the desired size,
write the name of your garden plants
and puncture the bottom of the
Styrofoam with the wire stick.
Secure in place with hot glue.

Tada! Instant plant labels!

They're not only decorative,
they also politely introduce themselves
to visitors to your garden.

Have a wonderful day!
