I loved making some cute little presents for my bridesmaids to open on the day of the wedding. These bridal hangers were one of the cheapest and easiest things to make and they looked fantastic throughout the wedding photos. I still have mine and think it makes the best memory and keepsake.
- Wooden Coat Hangers
- Spray Paint
- Wooden Letters
- Hot Glue
- Craft Glue
- Start by spray painting the coat hangers. I do all mine outside and hang them up on my clothes line, leaving them to dry for a few hours to minimise drips as well as finger print marks.
- While the hangers are drying, cover your MDF letters in craft glue, followed by a sprinkle of glitter. When I made these for my wedding, I cut each letter out of corrugated cardboard with a stencil. They looked almost identical but took three times the amount of work, so if you have access to MDF letters, or any other sort, I highly recommend taking that option.
- After you have covered each letter in glitter, spritz them with some hair spray to seal.
- Finally, lay the coat hanger on the ground, and space and center out each of your letters so it fits nicely within the hanger. Once you’re happy with the layout, put a little hot glue on the back of each and attach. To prevent them snapping off, center each letter on the hanger.
- Using a toothpick, remove any excess hot glue string
- Tie a ribbon around the hanger and using a lighter or match, lightly burn the ends (be careful!)
