Part III to Reader's Question

I thought this would also be a good craft for the Boy Scouts to make. It is easy, practical and recycles. These clothes hanger would be nice for the residents to hang their clothes on. It might brighten their day. I also made a small one thinking it would make a nice baby shower gift if done in pastel colors. I know my hangers would never be sold in a boutique, but it is the thought that counts.

You will need: plastic hanger, scissors, ribbon (I used 5 yards for the large hanger and an extra piece large enough for a bow), tape and 7 plastic grocery bags.

Wrap plastic bags around the hanger, securing them with tape.

Wrap hanger with ribbon.

Tie a bow on top. You could add a little gift tag.
