Yarn Covered Hanger

I know this seems like a silly craft, but don't we all hate when our close fall off the hanger, and if you need a CHEAP craft or a project for young girls this is great!

jan05hangers2Too many wire hangers hanging around? Tired of your clothes falling off plastic hangers? Then these yarn-covered hangers are an inexpensive solution! Slippery clothes stay hung up and unlike the wire hangers they are made from these won't damage clothes.

Materials Needed:

  • Two matching wire hangers
  • Two balls of yarn (remnants work great) in the same or coordinating colors
  • Scotch tape


  1. Using a small piece of scotch tape secure the hangers together in three places - at each elbow and middle top just below the twisted section.


  2. Hold the hangers in place between your knees as you work.


  3. Tape the ends of the yarn down at the start of the hanger hook and place one ball on each side of the hanger.


  4. Make a knot by wrapping the ball under the wire and slipping it back through the loop (see photo.)


  5. Continue making knots alternating sides until all the wire is covered.


  6. Finish off with a tassle if desiredjan05hangers3
