Make a Woodsy Hanger!




Take a walk in the woods or on the beach and find a branch or driftwood that's got a bit of a curve to it.

Step 1: Tools You'll Need

Besides your branch, you'll need the following tools:
Wire Hanger (mine was from the dollar store and I would have preferred a darker metal one)
Wire cutters
Saw (if you need to saw off the ends)
Drill with drill bit that is the size of the wire
Strong glue (I used E6000)
Peel off any bark 'cause you surely don't want it on your clothing or whatever you're going to be hanging.

Step 2: Unwrap the Hanger

Use your pliers to unwrap the top of the wire hanger below the hook.  You might need to straighten  out the bottom a bit with your pliers also.

Step 3: Cut the Hook

Cut the wire below the hook portion.

Step 4: Drill the Hole and Set the Hook

Determine the middle of the branch and drill a hole the same size as the wire. 
Insert some glue in the hole then insert your hook.  
Let it dry. 
Easy huh?!
It'd be super cute to carve or wood burn your initials in the middle!!!  
And it'd be a great gift!

    I like this, and I hope in the next version you go one step further and try to make a bushcraft version of the hanger completely out of wood or wood and cordage. That would be great and I think attract a lot more interest from the primitive skills people.
