DIY: Clothes Hanger to Plate Hanger!

hanger s

I’m an avid plate collector apparently, I just can’t pass up a cute plate for .50 cents at a thrift store! And to justify this collection, I’ve taken to using them as decoration :).  Naturally, I got creative, and used my many metal clothes hangers for a more productive purpose!

You need:

  • Metal Hangers (1 clothes hanger makes 2 plate hangers)
  • Wire Cutters
  • Pliers
  • Pins or T-Pins

Ta-Da!  You’re done!!  It takes all of five minutes to make these!  I hung them on the wall with either a small pin, or a T-Pin, depending on how heavy the plate is.

Have fun with this, and share your plate arrangements on the
Abundantly More Facebook Page!!

Until Next Friday!
