Wire + Paper

I hope you're having a terrific week!
Today, I've got another wire hanger transformation.

Blah: wire hangers from professional cleaners

Tada!: A pretty paper chandelier!

I straightened the wire hanger,
cut it into two using a wire cutter;
one longer than the other.
Then shaped each piece into a circle.
Ends secured tightly with tape.

The handle and connectors are
made of invisible thread/fishing line.
These were decorated with paper flowers,
punched out from old envelopes
and scrap paper.

This can add a touch of whimsy
to any room or can be used as
a party decoration in lieu
of balloons & buntings.

  6. Claire this is awesome!! I'm going to book mark this for parties...and then stop throwing out the wire hangers after the clothes come back from the drycleaner!!


  7. Hello Carrie! If you have too many wire hangers, you can return them to the dry cleaners so they can use them over again. But of course -- the more hangers you have, the more chandeliers you can make :)
