DIY Wedding Dress Hanger Tutorial

Recommended Posts

I cannot wait to try this! I think it is the cutest idea. I am by no means an artsy person, but I am hoping it is as easy as everyone keeps saying that it is...with practice of course.

Now I'm going to attempt the rest in my bridal party. I was trying to decide if I should put their first names or their title (ie: Maid of Honor). I was leaning towards their first names cuz then they could use them forever. But I also like to make it seem special for a wedding...which is what it is. Decisions, decisions!

I just made all of mine titles; I found capital letters to be the hardest to figure out how to make, so once I got 'Bridesmaid' down, I figured I'd just stick with it. Besides, it's such an honor to be part of someone's wedding; to have a keepsake of the role you played in that important day for your friend would be so special, I'm sure it would get just as much use as one with her first name!

We stuck it straight into the hanger, not L shape.

That has probably been my favourite project so far, lots of fun

My fiance did help me pull out the original dowels that were nailed into my hangers (I needed his muscle power), but I did the drilling myself. I'm the kind of girl that feels like 'if you want something done right, you have to do it yourself', hence making my own hangers rather than buying them ;)

 

I also stuck my wire ends directly into the (horizontally) drilled holes, however I did see many made with the 'L' bend on Etsy. The bend does give you a little more room between the top of your lettering and the underside of your hanger if you find your lettring looks a little smushed in there. I just liked the cleaner look of the straight wire.

I love this so much thank you for sharing! I also couldn't see myself paying 20 dollars for ach of these when I can make them for a fraction of the price

 

You're welcome! I had so much fun making my hangers and making this tutorial. I'm so happy to see lots of views and that alot of ladies have been using it to making thier own. I love seeing the variations and all the little personal touches everyone is adding.

These are all looking so great. I am getting so many ideas. I just hope I remember them all when it comes time to make them. I think it is an excellent way of letting the girls know you appreciate them taking part in your special day. It is an honor to be a BM, so I am sure these hangers will get a lot of use even after the wedding.

Hi Ladies,

 

I ordered got these flowers for my hangers, but the minimum was 35 assorted colors, so I have tons of extras. If anyone would like some please just inbox me and we can work it out to get them to you. I thought I would post it here as I am sure there are others looking for flowers for their hangers too. I bought them from an ebay seller so I would give them to you very cheap plus shipping if needed :)
