Ingenious DIY Projects Featuring Repurposed Hangers
This is a hanger holder which you can use for magazines and newspapers. It’s basically just a hanger attached to a knob. You can use any hanger, not just wooden ones. You can also hang it anywhere you want. The whole idea is to have the magazines within arm’s reach.
A hanger can also be used as a storage device for eyeglasses. It would still be used for storage purposes but not for the items it was intended for. This being said, you can easily repurpose an old hanger and turn it into an eyeglasses holder. It’s simple and it’s practical.
You can use hangers to store all sorts of things. For example, if you like DIY projects and crafts, then you might want to have a place to store all your ribbons and such. In this case you can use an old hanger for that. You’ll have to cut off the middle of the hanger and then to insert your ribbon spools and to fix it back with some duct tape.
A hanger can also be used as a jewelry storage system. All you have to do is pick a hanger that you like and that you think would look good as a jewelry holder and then attach a few small hooks to it. Then place it on a wall or anywhere else you want and enjoy your new creation.
Hangers can also be repurposed and used for more complex projects. This, for example, is a very interesting chair made from repurposed wooden hangers. It has a very sculptural and intriguing look and it’s definitely an eye-catching piece that would make a spectacular focal point in any space.
And here’s another igneous and creative idea: make a chandelier out of hangers. The idea is to place them in a circle and to form a symmetrical pattern. You can either leave the hooks on or remove them. Either way, the chandelier will be a one-of-a-kind piece and it will look amazing
These hangers are actually used for the same purpose they were created: storing and holding clothes and accessories. In this case they are used as towel holders but the interesting detail is that they are placed upside down. This way you can hang a towel on the hook and another smaller one on the actual hanger.
Believe it or not, you can also use hangers to make a fruit bowl. There are several models to choose from. One of them would involve you removing the hooks with pliers and drilling two holes, one on each side of the hanger. Put a bolt in each hole and add the end cap. Then attach the hangers together. If you want, you can also paint them.
If you want to use the hangers to make something useful for your kitchen then maybe you should try making a dish drain. You’ll need 8 or more wooden coat hangers, a drill and some screws. Remove the dowel rods from the hangers and cut their ends off. Then take two hangers that still have the rods on and put one in the front and one in the back. Put three more hangers in the middle. Then use the rods to secure them all.
Another interesting idea would be to use the hangers for their intended purpose but in a new and unique way. This, for example, is a wardrobe made of 20 wood hangers. They are hanging from black ropes and together form a piece with a sculptural appeal and a modern and unusual look.
