creative coat hangers

    I love using coat hangers to display art in my home and my art studio. Its a great way to switch things out without patching holes in the wall! 

Lately, I've been having fun getting creative with my coat hangers by making them a little more decorative!

A paint pen is the perfect tool to add doodles and drawings to dark wood or black hangers.

You can alter a hanger with just about anything- paper or fabric, even washi tape! I wrapped a hanger with washi tape in different patterns.

Swipes of messy, colorful paint is an easy way to turn a hanger into something artful!

  7. How exciting it is to come to your blog Alisa!!

  8. Beautiful hangers!! I've painted the regular (not clip style) wooden hangers in the past but would never have thought to paint the clip-style ones and use them to hang art. Now to find some wooden ones. Thanks for your wonderful ideas, Alisa!

  9. I just picked up a set of four vintage trousers hangers in two different sizes at a thrift store recent-- 4/$1! I love today's inspiration!

  10. Is no surface safe in your world?? love this Alisa. sending xoxoxo

  11. love this idea -- will definitely be doing this -- now to find some wooden hangers -- what an inspiration you are --

  12. I'll take the black and white hanger, thank you. WOW!! You have so much talent. Thank you for sharing your ideas and inspiration here. Hope you have a great weekend.

  13. What a great idea! I can't wait to get to the store and buy some of these hangers.

  14. Flat hangers are best for saving space because they fit snugly together. Curved, or contoured, hangers should be used for suits, coats, and dresses. The design mimics the curvature of the shoulders, helping these more delicate items to keep their shape.

  15. Thank you for this wonderful idea!
    Please have a look at my version :)
