Adorable Dress Hangers

Hello Everyone!

Creative juices are flowing as I work on some very fun projects.
Today I am sharing hangers that are fairly
simple to work on, and such a fun way to add
character to some very special dresses.



I started out with a wooden hanger in this shape, and covered it with
Pink Classic Glitter Swirl CS.
I just used regular glue to glue the paper to the wood.

Then I added dew drops and tear drops.


I decided to create a rose bud and leaves shape with
the dew drops and leaves with tear drops.
I used pink 6mm dew drops and yellow tear drops.


I then glued on a ruffle of lace to the bottom edge of the hanger.

Well....
This was just too easy and quite fun, so I decided to make a few more
hangers.  While we were in Ethiopia on our humanitarian mission
we bought traditional Ethiopian dresses for our
grand daughters, so I decided to make a hanger for each 
of the 3 dresses we bought.



On this hanger I decided to use yellow as a contrast to the red
in the dress, and make lady bugs from red tear drops.
I used yellow fleur linen cs (retired)
to cover the hanger.
I then made lady bugs using just a black sharpie on the
red tear drop.  Like this.

Here is the finished hanger with lady bugs crawling on the edge,
and on the front. I also added bright yellow 4mm dew drops on the hanger.

The third hanger is just simple and easy.


I covered the hanger in Spa Glitter Swirl.
I just made flowers and leaves with orange and green tear drops.
and a center to the flower in light green 4mm dew drops.
I love the little half flower on the ends.


Here are all three hangers together and finished.


And the dresses on the hangers.


What fun this was, and I was done in just around an hour!

Have a great day!

To find the dew drops and tear drops 


Ciao,

Robin
