Altered hanger

waving hi to everyone from the hills of North Carolina :)
I hope y'all are having a great week end and getting lots of crafty projects done! I'm trying to get some Christmas presents completed and this one is for my 'grand niece', well, really it's for her parents! She is such a cutie, but then I am a wee bit prejudiced, ;) I used a paint program on my computer to print out this soft muted picture of her and wanted a way to hang it up in her room, so I took a pant hanger and covered it in RRR's beautiful shimmer satin. Not only is this a cute way to hang a favorite picture, or a layout, but what about her favorite tutu when she has out grown it? That would be so cute!

20lb Hemp Cord Set Pastel

I used:
Yummy Hemp Cord in a Pastel Set, it really doesn't get much better than this...well, unless you lay your hands on the Shimmer Satin Pastel ribbons..... and, oh, together they are a little slice of heaven!

Shimmer Satin Pastel Assortment

I used both on my altered hanger.  Wrapping the hook with the gorgeous lavender hemp cord, which has a little texture to it and it wraps oh so beautifully! And adding the flower to the end of the hook is a great way to hide the push pin this is hanging from!

The lavender shimmer ribbon was wrapped around the hanger. I secured the end pieces with my hot glue gun and simply layered the ribbon around the hanger, much like you would do with a wreath. Just to let you know, you will need to use 4 yards of the ribbon, which leaves you plenty to....

....give your layout a stunning bow and accent!

If you're interested in the paint program, or the Cricut cuts, then just hop right on over to In the hills of North Carolina and I'll tell you all about them. ;) Also, I'm announcing who won my blog candy from the RRR blog hop!
I hope you're having a fabulous week end!


  1. This is such a terrific gift idea Sandee!! I just love it. That picture is beautiful and I love the way you covered the hanger with the shimmer satin and the flower is wonderful. You're so creative!! I love your crafty ideas.

  2. This is a great idea! I wish there was a pin it button so I could put it on my pinterest page. Maybe then I wouldn't forget it if I ever need a decorative hanger.

  3. This IS a really cute idea! Thanks for sharing it!
