DIY: Personalized Wedding Hanger – For Under $10!

Having a personalized hanger to hold your wedding dress is becoming a new trend that makes a great gift for a bride to be!  However, if you want to have a unique hanger this can get pricey and is an unnecessary added expense. Here is an inexpensive and quick way of creating your own personalized hanger:

Materials:

-14 gauge galvanized wire (available at any home improvement store)

-Wire cutters

-Needle nose pliers (you can find a 2-in-1 tool that cuts & bends wire)

-Wooden hangers

-Drill with drill bit about the size of your wire

-Glue gun or strong gorilla glue

-Pen and paper

Step 1: Pre-plan your font

We suggest writing or printing out exactly how you want your font on a piece of paper before you start to bend your wire, this will make it easier to see how your finished product will look!

STEP 2: Measure & Bend your wire

Start to measure out how much wire you will need for your hanger, allow approximately 10 to 12 inches of wire per letter plus a little more so you can attach it to your hanger.

Tip: Cut a few extra practice pieces of wire, it will take a couple tries to get your bending just right but be patient!

Step 3: Drill!

Drill two holes in the bottom inside of the hanger but don’t go all the way through, you may want to just go in a 1/2-inch or so.

Step 4: Attaching the wire

On both sides of the wire put a small amount of glue, be careful not to put too much since the wire will not fit nicely into the hanger and you will see the excess glue.

Step 5: Accessorize (optional)

You can decorate your hanger by tying a bow around the hook or gluing on rhinestones to the wood. This is your chance to make it even more personalized and creative!
