It seems so difficult to keep a shoe closet organized. Here is a great way to hang shoes and flip flops to get them off of the floor and add a little more organization to your life.

Step 1: Supplies
Here is what is needed to create a flip flop hanger
A wire hanger
A wire cutter - You will need some heavy duty wire cutters for this job
Step 2: Cut Hanger
Start by cutting the bottom half of the hanger off.
You will not need the straight bottom end. Save it for another craft idea if you would like.
Step 3: Shape Hanger
Now shape the hanger to your liking.
Start by creating a loop at the end of the hanger. This holds two purposes. The first is to tuck away the sharp edge of the wire and secondly it makes the hanger look cooler.
Secondly bend the wire into a V shape.
Repeat on the other side of the wire. so in the end you have two Vs on either end of the hanger.
Step 4: Secure Top of Hook
One thing I noticed after I cut the bottom off the hanger is the twists at the top of the hanger came loose because there was no tension from the bottom keeping it tight.
To remedy this I decided to hot glue the twist together. It gave the hanger some extra security so it wouldn't come falling apart once shoes were placed on it.
To add some extra decoration and to hide the hot glue I decided to add a ribbon bow to the top of the hanger. This is completely optional but will add a cute touch.
Step 5: Hang
Now that the hanger is complete you can hang your shoes on it. Flip flops are easy to hang on this hanger and look really nice.
I also have some Toms that I have hung on hangers like this. The looped end of the hanger goes into the toe of the shoe and holds the flats up really well.
