Mommie Dearest Approved!

I think just about everyone and their mothers recognize this line  —  “no wire hangers everrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!!!” from the movie “Mommie Dearest”.  While Mommie D (as I like to call her) might have hated wire hangers for clothes, she would certainly approve of this project.   I got my decorations at a discount store in my neighborhood last year — 50 balls for $2.99 …. errrr … hello!!!!!   You’ll need about 80; I combined that purchase with other shades of purple decorative balls I had previously.   I got the hated wire hanger from the cleaners and I was ready to go!!!   After dinner today, I got cracking.  

I’d read the tutorial a couple of years ago on Eddie Ross’ website and really loved the results.  It’s so easy a project, even non-DIYers can do it!  I loosely followed the instructions.  I didnt glue my tops like he did; they were firm enough to stay on without having to go through that step.  I also did not wrap the top of my hanger the way he did.  When stringing the decorations, I didn’t plan, I just started stringing them on in random order, using the smaller ones to fill in any spaces.  Then in a matter of about 30 mins … I got my tadahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!

I was so excited by the results, I couldn’t even wait for better light to photograph it!!!  😀

I’d love to see if you make one too!  Let me know if you try it!!!   I’m ready for Christmas — a Christmas that has space even for wire hangers!!!! 😛
