My husband gets these medal hangers with his uniforms on from work I really don't care to use medal hangers so I thought I would try something with them and this is what came up with.
A ribbon covered hanger.
Here are the items I used
Hanger (you could also use plastic ones)
Plastic bags (about 3 or 4 for each hanger)
Hot glue and a glue gun
First I covered the part where the hanger is joined with packaging tape so no sharp ends
would cut through my finished product.
I covered the entire hanger except for the top part of the hook with white plastic bags.
Careful to turn any print on the bags to the inside.
Try making this kind of fluffy but also evenly wrapped.
When starting and ending each bag I put a small piece of the packaging tape on it to hold it to the hanger.
Wrap the ribbon around the bag covered hanger making sure that each time you go around slightly overlaps the previous one.I put a dot of hot glue each time I went around to hold the ribbon down.
First I did not know if this would work because I was afraid it would melt the plastic.
I used a mini low temp glue gun.
There were times I put a strip of glue on the ribbon for a better hold and the ribbon laid better.
(I really thought this way worked better and did it this way like for half the project.)
When you get all way around with the ribbon tie a bow on the top.
wound it was better to cut my ribbon and glue he end down and then make a bow tying it around.
Make sure to cut your ribbon on a slant this helps to keep ribbon from fraying.
Enjoy using your new hangers or give them as a gift.
My little gir thought these were great. She loves pretty girly things.
