There is a woman on the craft forums I’m on that makes them.  They’re just alumium wire. It bends very easily, and she just shapes out the letters with a pair of pliers wrapped in a little floral tape so the wire doesn’t crimp.

To reiterate: You do not bend the “bar” that comes with the wooden hangers. That is removed and replaced with aluminum wire bent into the name/shape/whatever you choose.

I personally don’t like the wire ones because I always seem to get things caught, so I made these out of some old wooden hangers and scrapbooking stickers.  I think they came out to $1.50 each.

@acfulhorst:  Thanks 🙂  The names are all individual letter stickers which I purchased from Michaels during one of their scrapbooking sales.

@acfulhorst:  The hangers I already had, but I think you get buy them at costco or on amazon for about $10 or $11 per dozen.  Also, you can print up Michaels 40% coupons, and some Michaels even take Hobby Lobby coupons (although I would check both stores to see which has a better price).
