I wanted good looking clothes hangers that were interesting and functional. I had extra kindling, and realized that some of them had nice looking bark. This would make a hangar with a subtle outdoors aesthetic.
Step 1: Materials
I used leftover kindling, as it was perfect in size and with the desired bark/natural look. For the hangar bit you could use anything, I had some spare copper wiring lying around. I just guessed the right size, but you need to cut the two top pieces out so they fit flush to form a triangle. Looking at the pictures, you can see the angles required to properly fit the pieces. This is pretty intuitive, and I did not spend time worrying about it too much.
Step 2: Build the Frame
After sanding/sawing the pieces to the right shape to make a hangar shaped triangle, secure them together using wood glue and or nails. Keep the decorative bark/wood facing outwards.
Step 3: Hanging
Drill a hole in the top to secure the wire section. Bend the desired hook, and bend once through the hole. There you go! You’re done! Maybe sand a spot or two, but your wood bark accented clothes hangers are completed for use.
