Make a Wire Hanger Wreath

Hi this is Jenifer here with you today to share this very cute little mini wreath I made using a wire coat hanger.

 Make a Wire Hanger Wreath

Using a pair of pliers take apart your wire hanger.  Shape it into a circle.  It doesn’t have to be perfect but just as good as you can manage.  I wrapped the wires around twice to make it a bit sturdier. This wreath is only about 6″ across.  I found that using hot glue was the easiest way to attach the leaves to the wires, go all the way around overlapping slightly.  

**Tip** I love ribbon!  But sometimes the ribbon I want to use is wired but I don’t necessarily want wired ribbon for my project.  I pull the wire out and now my ribbon is not wired 🙂  I also save the wire and use it in a bunch of different ways, such as wrapping it around UmWowStudio butterfly confetti to give the illusion of little floating butterflies.

After the wire frame is covered with leaves tuck in some of your wired butterflies.  Now you have a wonderful start to your mini wreath that you can build on to suit your needs.

Here is a close up of some of the ribbons and flowers.

Using my Bow-it-all I quickly made a double bow out of some soft pink silk, attach it to the bottom center of the wreath, add some flowers and some more beads and your wreath is ready to go.

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my project today, make sure you stop by regularly for some wonderful inspiring projects from this very talented team.
