Super cute!  I love them! You did such a great job with their names and the designs, I especially like the rhinestone accents!

Wait, how did you get the names on there?  I just started this project last night.  I sanded them down so that I can paint them.

@bride9911: sounds like she used a method something like the game we played in school called dots. You DARKLY shade the letters and then flip the paper onto the surface so the letters are on the surface. Then you run across the backside so the dark shading of the letters transfers onto the hanger. Does that help?

Love it!  I just recently talked myself out of buying one of the $50 bent wire name hangers, as I’m trying to cut back the budget where I can.  I’ll have to think about DIYing them!  What’s a pack of wooden hangers, $5?  Perfect!

@mrstj2b: yeah you did it the opposite way I described but yours makes sense so you don’t have to “mirror” the letters. Then you even went into detail on how to mirror the design so I think you deserve many kudos for explaining it in such deatil! I think I am going to try this over the weekend. I only need 5 and it sounds like an easy project 🙂 thanks for idea!

Check your local scrap book stores for the self adhesive rhinestones. Hobby Lobby has scrap book embellishemnts 50% off all the time. And Archiver’s sends out coupons for 30% off one item. The rhinestones stick like cement so it’s an option if you don’t want to individually glue them.
