DIY: Upcycled Metal Hanger

Since I did have a blog before this I decided to transfer some of the DIYs I had on there.

This up cycle is great for the fast approaching Spring and Summer months.The sun is finally out and now you have an excuse to wear those Ray Bans or those trendy shades you got at Urban on sale in the fall that have been collecting dust this very.. very long winter. And if you’re like me you have more than three pairs of sunglasses and your vanity is so cluttered that you can’t find those really nice pair that go with your outfit. So I found a solution METAL HANGERS! I have a million in my house,thanks to my sister’s excessive dry cleaning. This is the perfect way to make use of all of them.

If you don’t feel like reading here’s a link to my YouTube video tutorial here.

If you do feel like reading or pinning this on Pintrest just head below.


Acrylic Paint (Spray Paint work too)


Metal Hanger


1- Paint the hanger, do as many layers as you feel is needed, and repeat on both sides. Lay flat to dry.

2-  Once its dried add beads to decorate the handle. (You can use hot glue to secure the beads)

You can also do stripes or an ombre look to your hanger. Even glitter.

For the glittered hanger you’ll need:


Glitter (or glitter paint)

Mod Pongee

Metal Hanger


1- Cover one side of the hanger with glue or mod podge.

2-  Sprinkle glitter on top of the hanger, let it dry before repeating on the other side.

3- Once its completely dried, add a layer of mod podge so the glitter with stay in place.
