DIY Wedding Dress Hanger Tutorial

Recommended Posts

you are so artistic, i dont think i can do it. what do you use to bend?
Your fingers!! The 12 guage wire is pretty easy to bend, but you can use objects like a lip gloss to wrap the wire around and make circular shapes. I would suggest just buying some wire at the craft store ($3) and practicing a bit before investing in all of the other supplies. You can do it!

Brides in Canada - where did you find your wire? I found some at Michaels, but they were ridiculously expensive. It would cost me any where from $20+ to make 1 hanger. Any suggestions?

Don't go to Michaels without a coupon...you can always find at least 40% a regular price item, either in their flyer or online on a smart phone. I never pay full price at Michaels :)

LoL. I definitely know better than to pay for full price items at Michael's. The mark up is crazy. I had a 50% off coupon but sitll found the wire to be a bit pricey. Maybe I'll go back again and look again. But yes, thanks for that tip! :)

Oof.  Here in the US the wire at Michael's costs under $4., and I made at least 2 hangers from one package.  I bought the hangers at Ikea.  $5 for 8 of them. http://www.ikea.com/us/en/catalog/products/80217374/#/30217376  I also found a vendor on etsy who sold me tulle flowers to adorn them, and I bought rhinestone buttons at Michaels for $5 for 4.  Each hanger cost approx. $4.50.

that sounds pretty reasonable if you are in the US, but Michaels here is more expensive. Maybe with the 40% off coupon it might be ok. Sounds like I may have to make another trip to the states!

Yes, Michael's is much cheaper in the states! I think the wire I was looking at was closer to $9 or $11 per pack. I might be wrong, but I'm pretty sure I couldn't justify it at the time haha... I may try the floral department at Walmart or Rona or something. They must have something :)
