Free Wreath Hangers
in your closet!
You can make them in minutes.
 Earlier in the summer I published a post about making this wreath. At the same time my daughter, Hollie, showed me how she makes wreath hangers for free.
All that's needed are a few wire coat hangers, wire snips and needle nose pliers.
 Clip the curved shoulder area with the wire snips. You will have a "U" shaped piece as pictured below. You will want to have about three to four inches on each side of your "U".
 This is where Hollie's strong hands come in handy. This is where I use the needle nose pliers.
 You can see the second piece on the towel. You can make two easy hooks from each wire hanger. You could make more but we went for the easy peasy ends.
 You can see here, how she simply bent the ends back making a two pronged hook that will grab the back of most wreaths securely.
 These hooks are extremely strong. They will grip Christmas or any heavy wreaths securely as shown below.
This wreath was covered with clay pots 
and it is holding strong.
Everyone will be hanging beautiful
seasonal wreaths soon, so
I hope you found this tip helpful.

Ginger, Great tip!! Y'all are so smart. Now I'm wishing I hadn't taken my hangers back to the dry cleaner for "recycling". Hugs and have a great week.
