I shared this diy a few years back and thought it was time to revamp it and share it again! I love Free People and one of my favorite things about shopping there is their decor and all the sweet details; one of those being their hangers! These are a fun and easy version that you can make in just a few minutes. It's sure to make your wardrobe look nice and fresh!

S U P P  L I E S :: fabric / scissors / hangers / hot glue

1) Cut your fabric into one inch strips. Your fabric may have a few wrinkles or folds, but that won't matter.

2) Place your hot glue at the end of one of your strips and place it down at the tip of your hook. Begin to wrap the strip around your hanger. Once you reach the end of your fabric strip, glue it down and start with a new one. Yes, it's just that easy!

I love having these in my closet! The fabric provides a nice grip for tank tops or loose fabrics that would normally slide off. They're also pretty and make hanging laundry just a little more fun (just a little!) Hope y'all have fun making hangers!

M A K E :: fabric frames



I've made it a point this year to print out more photos. With everything being digital these days, I sometimes forget to make a hard copy, or even to display our photos in our home. I've been thinking up a few ways to display our photos and these fun frames are one them!

S U P P L I E S :: fabric, wooden frame, mod podge, scissors, pen 

1) Choose your fabric and lay it out. place your frame face down and grab your pen. trace the shape of your frame onto your fabric; both the inside and along the outside.

 2) Using your scissors, cut out the shape of your frame on your fabric. try and stay as close to the line as possible, as the shape will need to be pretty precise.
 
3) Grab your Mod Podge and spread a thin layer across the top of your frame. it may dry quickly, so feel free to add a second layer. when you've evenly spread your Mod Podge, place your fabric on top of your frame and press firmly. you may notice a few wrinkles, but those can be "pushed out" by simply running your finger across the fabric from end to end. let dry for 15mins.





 
I love the way these came out and it cost me less than $5 to make all three! There are so many fabrics to choose from and different ways to customize. Have fun with it!
