Step 1: What You Need

A normal hanger

Step 2: Pull the Hanger Downwards to Form a Long Rectangular Loop

The pictures are quite self explanatory

Step 3: ..bend the Hanger

Bend the hanger 90 degree around halfway of the rectangular loop

Step 4: ..bend Again

Bend up the end of the hanger 90 deg. Remember to measure so that your tissue box fits in the tray perfectly.

You can tilt the hook of the hanger 90deg from the side to the back if you want to hang the end product by the window. You can leave the hook untouched if you just want to hang the tissue box on the wall.

Step 5: ..voila!

That's it! you have just made yourself a useful tissue box hanger!

    Oh.My.Gosh. Pure genius. This makes me kinda mad now that I look back at the four years I spent in a tiny dorm room in a lofted bed, dog-gone sick with a cold and having to find other ways to squeeze my tissue box on a shelf alongside my other nighttime amenities. If only I had known sooner! I'll definitely think about using this in other spaces though where surface-area is a limited option.

    Exactly. Haven't we all had the similar experience? Especially a non-rooted tissue box always disappear mysteriously when you need it. A wire clothes hanger is one of the most versatile material for small and useful DIY projects.

    Nice idea. And... you could use a crocheted hanger to make it more fancy!!
