DIY: No Slip Hangers


My closet is filled with dresses, blouses, and all things that have a tendency to slip off hangers.  As the amount of these items grew in my closet so did the lost and found in the middle of it. I couldn’t keep my clothes on the hangers, and wanted a budget friendly way to keep my clothes from falling to the floor. That is when I started to use pipe cleaners as my “no slip surface”. 

{Place the pipe cleaner on the top shoulder section of the hanger.}

 {Wrap the pipe cleaner tightly around the hanger until you run out.}
{Add a second pipe cleaner into the one you already wrapped on the hanger.}
 {The pipe cleaner should have little to no gaps on the hanger when finished.}
 {Repeat on the other side.}
{final result}

  1. Did you get the Lilly State of Mind dress with the bow on the sleeve?!? I loved that one, but it didn't look too great on me. What a great idea with the pipe cleaners, very clever!
