Everyone has those plastic coat hangers that clothes slip off from or your clothes end up sliding down to one end, it can be frustrating. I recently replaced all of my old plastic hangers with new velvet hangers I got on sale at Marshalls and I didn’t want to throw the old hangers away, so I went searching on Youtube to find a DIY that upcycled these old plastic hangers and I struck gold! Since the Christmas Holidays were coming up, I was overjoyed I found a DIY using the old hangers to help decorate my home. I began to love those old hangers when I saw this project unfold. To begin the project, I first laid the hangers out in a star shape on the table, then I had gotten a packet of 65 cable ties from Dollar Tree and zip tied them all together. I tied the center joins first, loosely at first, because you are going to do the outer joins and you want it to be able to shift and settle in before the end of the project. When you get the outer portion of the Christmas Snowflake done and fastened tightly with zip ties, you go back and tighten the center. I used wire cutters to cut all the long ends of the zip ties off, you can also use scissors, but wire cutters are going to be and easier cut and you also won’t risk hurting your scissors. After you finish this quick holiday decor idea, there should be plenty of time to make DIY Christmas gifts.
Then I spray painted this gorgeous Christmas Star with Rustoleum Spray Paint in a silver color. You can also leave the snowflake white and paint wit Modpodge and sprinkle glitter all over for a different look.
This project was all the things I love in the DIY world, fun, easy, cheap and completely ingenious! I ended up making about 40 of them and hung them from tree branches. I hope you enjoy this project as much as I did.
