How to Make Padded Hangers

Use leftover yarn, ribbon or crocheting to upgrade cheap plastic clothes hangers into padded clothes hangers that will keep your garments in place.

  • Transform boring store-bought clothes hangers into colorful craft projects with more grip than a regular hanger.

I prefer not to buy the expensive covered and padded clothes hangers, yet my clothing slips right off the cheap plastic type that’s readily available. 

To remedy this problem, I wrap my plastic clothes hangers in leftover yarn to create friction that holds my clothes in place. Wrapping ribbon or even crocheting directly onto the hanger is another way to make an upgrade. This makes a great winter craft project that can be fun for kids, too.
