So I am determined to make my own hangers! I haven't assembled the wire as I'm still practicing - I'm using 14 gauge wire I bought from a hardware store. I've seen lots of ppl saying they use 12 gauge floral wire. Is there a huge difference? Where do you find the floral wire? I like the wire I'm using, but it's pretty hard to manipulate. I'm trying to make them "cleaner" - better spacing and straighter. Any tips?Attached File  ImageUploadedByTapatalk1413647113.178596.jpg   213.38KB   22 downloads

I'm sorry I dont have any tips - All I can say is if you wouldn't have said it was DIY - I would have FOR SURE thought you bought that!!!  :o  I am a perfectionist myself and can honestly say, it looks AMAZING!!!!!!! Stop being so hard on yourself Hun! Maybe take a break from it and look upon it with fresh eyes! I think you're done! Great work!!!!

That's an amazing first attempt!  I would suggest the 12 gauge.  If you are finding it hard to work with it would be a little easier with the 12.  jewellery wire would work too- michaels and use your 40% off coupon!  lol

Nice. If you don't want to , I bought my hangers from etsy for 4$ each, but shipping was expensive- I only bought 2 hangers and the total was 20$ (for shipping too)  but that is still a good deal for me!

Just for the hanger or with the wire name? Mine on etsy was much more :(

Yes for the whole thing. The seller was TheEliteBride. I honestly thought it was too good to be true at first, but my hangers look nice! I am not sure on Canadian shipping prices though
