A: You need a fancy hanger! Build this nice tree-shaped hatstand from anything flat and wooden (I used a worn out pinewood table with missing legs. This would probably look good in any wooden material. if it doesent, you can cover it with paint.
Step 1: Materials and Preparation
If you want to hang coats and heavier stuff on the hatstand; you may consider using plywood for strength issues. This could also be a lot thinner than an inch.
Prepare the board by removing atached items such as table legs or screws.
Step 2: Transfer the Pattern to the Board
Cut out the pattern on a vinyl cutter, peel away the extents, apply the application tape and then stick it to the board. You don't have to remove the application tape yet.
If you take a roller pen and draw extension lines from the branches, this will make it easier to position the band saw right before cutting the shape.
Step 3: Cut Out the Shape
Depending on the finish you prefer, you can waste a lot of time with the finishing touch. I hate that kind of work, so I roughly sanded it with a powerfile to make it look good from distance.
Step 4: Distance Pieces
Use the same board you used for the tree and make two of the shapes shown. Fit it with wooden plugs and mount them on the back of the tree with screws and glue. Make sure to align the pieces with the edge that is supposed to hang vertical as shown.
