I've been searching for a pretty hanger for pictures of The Dress, and after failing to find something reasonably priced (i.e.: cheap), I decided to monogram my own, using cheapie Ikea wooden ones in white.
Here's my low-tech way of doing it:
1. Pick your initial(s) / name and your preferred font.
2. Print it out at an appropriate size for your hanger -- I used font size 90 with Freebooter font
3. Shade the back with a soft pencil. Be generous and rub it on well!
4. Position the monogram/name and stick it in place (i used some sticky tape on 2 sides)
5. Use a ball point pen and trace the design, pressing HARD. You should then get a sufficient imprint of the design on your hanger.
6. Use a fine-tip permanent marker and carefully fill in the imprint.
TA-DAAAAAH! pretty hanger for nice dress photos :)
Oh, you can also buy rhinestones and stick them on after getting the imprint, if you like a little bling bling :)
Beautiful! I love this!
Love this! I had already made a 'hanger cover' but I think I might change my mind and do this instead!
Or do it for my bridesmaids!
I am so doing this! Thanks for the tip!
Wow! I love that idea!
Cool! I am doing this for my groom, too! :-) I was going to get wooden letters but this is so much easier!!
my groom picked a different font but insisted on using a thicker Sharpie. he messed it up and shrugged, "At least we bought 8!" :P
I cannot wait to make one of these! (Thinking to self: I wish I had a wodden hanger to try this on right now,)
such a great idea....I was regretting not purchasing a pretty hanger but didn't think I had time to. Thanks for sharing!
That is totally cute! :)
i love this idea! *running to buy wooden hangers*
i love this idea as well. i have added it to my "to do" list
wow i never would have ever thought of that!
This is so cool! If I have some extra time I think I'll do this! Thanks for the tutorial!
you're most welcome, Ms Mascara. i did it in under 10 min, even for a first attempt, so you should give it a shot!
This is the cutest idea in the whole wide world! I am putting this on my to-do list too! My bridesmaids will think its so original and definitely be used again! Thanks!
I have already purchased my hangers, but I was planning on painting the monogram. This is much more fool proof than allowing myself access to paint.
love it! and so simple. good job!
Thanks for sharing this. Because of your post, I've done a couple of hangers too!
Wow, pren79! Those hangers look great. Thanks for sharing.

I love that pren79 was inspired & posted her version of these hangers!! It's fun to see a DIY tutorial/project come to life :)
Thanks for sharing this!! I was planning on doing this, and your pencil rubbing idea just made it 10 times easier.
I wish I would have done this for my lovely ladies. It looks so simple and super cool!
now i'm tempted to make these as christmas gifts, haha! imagine, a whole set for someone.....
I've had this bookmarked for a really long time and I'm so thrilled that I can now put this DIY tutorial to good use! Thanks again @mrspaetz
i LOVE this idea, i may tweek this idea a bit, im almost certain i will have some extra letters from my "bridesmaids" tshirts
i featured this on my wedding planning blog,
i hope thats ok
I'm going to do this today!!!I'll post pictures when I'm done :-)
tagging this for later... I wanted to do something with the hangers but was afraid I would fail at the wire ones, this looks awesome!
If you do a thicker font you ONLY NEED TO OUTLINE the letter. It's much easier on your hand! lol
I did mine yesterday, I'm sooo pleased how they turned out.
so simple, i would have never thought of this!
