Step 1: Materials Needed
wire hangers, wire cutters, spray paint, shoes
Step 2: CAUTION
• Handling pointed metal ends of wire hangers can cut or poke you.
• Use wire cutters with care; watch your fingers.
• Spray paint is harmful if ingested; it stains clothing and skin.
Step 3: Make the Cuts
With your wire cutters, cut off the bottom section of the hanger at each end.
Note: This should be fairly easy with the proper wire cutters.
Step 4: Curl the Ends
With your wire cutters, curl the cut point upward toward the hook of the hanger.
Note: You can curl the ends any way you’d like. By curling the ends, you protect yourself from getting cut.
Step 5: Finishing Touches
Outdoors (on a cardboard or plastic surface), use your favorite spray paint to coat each side of the hanger.
Note: Clear coat spray paint was used in the photo (this protects the metal of the hanger from rust).
Step 6: Admire Your Work
When dry, take the hanger inside and hang your shoes and sandals on the hanger and in your closet.
Enjoy a more orderly closet!
