    I think they look great, and definitely of similar quality to some of the ones you can get on Etsy. Good luck with the rest of them!

    Ummm, these are FABULOUS!  I actually see a lot of the “professional” ones and can’t always tell what they’re supposed to say.  Honestly, yours are GREAT – BETTER than a lot of professional ones I’ve seen!

    Yours are great! Superb job. I’m doing my own as well as there’s no way I’m spending $35 for them.

    I think it looks nice!  Can you heat up the straight ends with a dryer to smooth them out?


      There are some “knock off” sellers out there who really don’t have polished work.  I’m kind of surprised they try to sell their stuff.


    FYI, LilaFrances, the original creator of those hangers, now sells just the wire.  She includes instructions for adding to to your own wooden hanger. 

    It was $17 for just the wire…which is the route I went.

    They look awesome!!! I can’t tell a difference from the ones I’ve seen on etsy either. How did you do them?

    Where does one buy wire for something like that? Hobby Lobby? Michaels? What exactly is it called? My only suggestion would be to use a lowercase a for Ann, but make it tall like a capitalized one. The rest of the letters are so bubbly and rounded, and the A looks out of place because it has harsh lines to it, even though you tried to soften it around the edges. Just my take on it! Otherwise they look amazing!

    Beautiful!  Definitely beats paying $50 to have one hand-made for you!

    I think they look great and they won’t be photographed so close up anyway. I must disagree with the PP who dislikes the A in Ann as that was one feature I really like, that you chose to use a print A instead of a cursive one.
