Unique Bridesmaid Gift


I was recently a bridemaid in my dear friend, Kristen's, wedding. Kristen is a real DIY girl and there were so many elements to her wedding that are worth sharing. I will be highlighting a few in the weeks ahead. For starters, check out these adorable, bridal party hangers that the bride handmade for each of her attendants.  These are so original and creative.  I have been a bridesmaid 6 times and I've never seen these before.  Don't you just love?!?


Supplies Needed:  Wooden Hangers - Such As These
                             Soft Round Aluminum Craft Wire. Such as This
                             Basic Craft Pliers.  Such As These
                             Hot Glue Gun

How To:               
Bend your craft wire into cursive letters leaving enough room on each end for you to glue onto your wooden hanger.

Tip:  WorksheetWorks.com has a cool cursive text generator that you can use as a guide for each name.   

Not only are they a cute gift idea for your bridal party, but they are also functional.  No need to worry about dresses that are the same size getting mixed up between girls.  It also makes for an adorable photo of all the dresses hanging together. 


For the not-so-crafty or too-pressed-for-time bride, you can always purchase these hangers from a variety of sellers on Etsy.  Aressa is just one example of many that provide these personalized clothes hangers for bridal parties. 

I've shared this idea at the following Link Parties.
