I bought mine from the dollar store but I imagine that other places such as Walmart or any of the home stores may have better quality ones.. just depends on how much you want to spend.

Hello ladies, I love the custom wedding dress hangers and considered buying mine from etsy, but couldn't bring myself to pay $20+ knowing I could make it myself for only a few dollars each. A couple ladies asked for instructions on how I made mine, so here it goes, my first tutorial ever... Please let me know if you have any questions. http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 What you'll need: Wooden hangers (preferably without the wooden dowel) - bought on sale at Zellers 12 guage aluminum wire - from Michaels in the jewelery section (3 yds is enough to make about 2 - 3 hangers) Wire cutters Lipgloss or something else round Paper and pencil Drill and some sort of glue (not pictured) Decorative flowers - from Michaels, or ribbon http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 First I had my fianc© help me pull/break off the wooden dowels from all the hangers http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Then drew a template by tracing the bottom edge of the hangers onto paper and drawing my letters to fit http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Using the template start to shape your letters using your fingers. Make sure you leave enough straight wire at the beginning that the top of your first letter will not touch the bottom edge of the hanger. You may want to have some extra wire on the side to practice with, if you make a mistake on your project it is very hard to unbend and get the wire straight again. http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Use the Lipgloss to wrap the wire around to make circular shapes http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Leave enough straight wire at the end of your word that the top of your last letter does not touch the bottom of your hanger. Next you drill a tiny hole on each end of the inner side of the hanger. Cut the wire so it will fit in the holes and put a tiny bit of wood glue on the tip of the wire before putting it in the drilled hole. http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Add your flower, these ones come with a sticky backing, or tie on a ribbon and voila! You're done, now make one for all the ladies in your wedding party. http://www.bestdesti.../600/height/337 Please let me know if you have any questions, and post pictures of your creations. Have fun!
I am impressed! I even like yours better than a lot of them that I saw on etsy.
I love him & he loves me, we'll be married by the sea.

Your tutorial was great! I am going to attempt creating my own this weekend. Just in case it's a flop, I will be purchasing from my cousin, Mayana. She has a hanger business:
Embella Hangers (google, etsy, Facebook, twitter, etc.)
She can make anything requested! She created the hangers for Real Housewife of Atlanta celebrity Kandy Burruss' recent wedding.
