Now aren't those little BasicGrey hangers so adorable? I know I'll be keeping my eyes open for it but in the meantime, I thought I'd give these a go too.
I used a few basic ingredients - some thin craft wire, a sheet of BG stickers and a few scraps of BG paper. I used Plumeria for these as that was first that came to hand!
First off was the hanger itself which I thought would be the hardest thing to master and the first thing to need to do. I promise I did this totally by eye and just grabbed the wire and a paintbrush and started bending, using the paintbrush to help my rounded corners. I started with the hook at the top, then down to the first bend and then the triangle form for the bottom of the hanger. The last bit was the trickiest - wrapping that last bit of wire around the hook to finish off the hanger end. I trimmed the end of the wire, squashed down the end so that it didn't have a sharp edge and that was it. Honest - about three minutes per hanger. And of course, they got better and easier as I went on. They are no way the same size but I decided I was ok with that. To judge the bottom "rung" of the hanger, I just eyeballed it next to the stickers and paper I had on the desk.
As you can see, it's not perfect but once you add the sticker and paper it's less noticeable.
I then layered up some papers, stickers, twine, stitching and generally copied what BG had done with the originals.
Again, I think I spent no longer than 30 minutes on these three hangers from start to finish! And these cost me pennies rather than what I'm sure is a more hefty price on the originals!
Having a go?!? Make sure you share if you do!
