How to Make
1. Make sure your coat hangers are clean
and dry before painting a layer of First Edition Deco Maché Matt Adhesive Glue.
Tip: Deco Mache papers will show up better on lighter colours, paint your
hangers white before adding your papers to really make the designs stand out!
2. Tear a piece of your chosen deco
maché paper and place around your coat hanger. To seal the decoupage, give your
paper a top coat of glue. Continue to cover your coat hanger, slightly
overlapping each piece of deco maché paper. We have used the First Edition
Multi Butterflies Pastels, Humming Bird and Bright Bouquet decoupage papers to
cover our coat hangers.
3. To embellish your hangers we have
used Dovecraft Resin Flowers to create a stylish feature at the top of the
hanger then placed two mini ribbon bows on the metal hook for extra charm, one
to the front and one on the back.
4. You can also decorate your hanger
with lace; we have made a large bow to fit in the space at the top of the
hanger. Make sure your bow is placed central on the hanger before sticking down
with double sided tape. We have then placed a large white paper flower at the
top of the wooden hanger and added three smaller ones below the larger
5. For an alternative design, you can
embellish the top of your hanger with a mixture of adhesive gems and pearls to
create a pretty design. Fill as much space as possible by sticking adhesive
pearls around the metal hook.
