Here's how I cover my hangups.

No more plain old ugly hangers for me.
I keep yarn covered hangups in my closet.


Here's my hangups for the Orlando Magic.

Here's how you can cover your hangups.

Hangup style #1
Uses a single hanger

Colorful covered hanger creations were very popular in the 1950s. I learned to make yarn covered hangers as a Girl Scout when I was a kid. I still enjoy making them as an adult since they are easy, make great gifts, offer a creative way to utilize your ugly old hangups, and help keep things from falling to the bottom of your closet and wrinkling your clothes!

You'll need 1 metal/wire hanger, 2 balls of yarn in colors of your choice, and 1 scissors.

Each covered hanger will require approximately 1 hour until you've made a few.

Step : Begin with a single metal clothes hanger.

Step : Hold the hanger between your legs. Throughout the remaining steps keep one ball of yarn on each side of your hanger, i.e., one on the left; one on the right. In this case, I used aqua yarn on the left, and coral yarn on the right. Use only one color of yarn, if desired. I prefer multi-colors.

Step : Make a knot by slipping the first ball under the wire and slipping it back through the loop and pulling tight. In this case I started with aqua yarn on the left, so I pulled the knot to the left.

Step : Using the second ball, on your right, make the same knot pulling tight to the right.

Step : Continue making knots from side to side, and you will start to see your two colored pattern forming.

Step : Continue knotting all the way around the hanger.

Here's what your hangup will look like half-way through.

Step : When you reach the neck and have completely covered the metal, cut both balls of yarn from the hanger leaving 4-5 inches connected to the hanger. You're almost finished!

Step : To complete the hanger, tie the remaining two strands into a bow.

Finis!


Once you cover your first hangup, you'll be faster on the next!

TIPS

Here's a few tips for making yarn covered hangups, going forward.

Consider mixing multi-colored yarn with single-color yarn, i.e., white, black, etc. This adds a really cool affect.

Cover your hangups while watching a favorite TV show, listening to music, or in your car on a road-trip, hopefully not while you're driving. See TextingAndDrivingIsCrazy.com.

Covering hangups is a great activity for anyone. Children as well as the elderly can benefit as it exercises hand-eye coordination and finger, hand, and wrist joints, all while exercising the brain (dementia prevention?).

Add yarn pompoms instead of a bow, as a finishing touch.

If you share a closet space, color coordinate your hangups so you can easily identify which items belong to whom. 



Hangup style #2
Uses two hangers

Before                                              After

   


Tape two hangers at points shown.

Step : Begin by taping TWO metal clothes hangers together at these five key locations.

Step : TAPE THE ENDS of two yarn balls of different colors (use only one color of yarn, if desired) to the end of the hanger neck, leaving 2-3 inches outside of the tape for extra security.

NOTE: Hold the taped double hangers between your legs. Throughout the remaining steps keep one ball of yarn on each side of your hanger, i.e., one on the left; one on the right. In this case I used aqua yarn on left and coral on right, as shown above.


Aqua yarn, left. Coral yarn, right.

Step : Make a knot by slipping the first ball under the wire and slipping it back through the loop and pulling tight. In this case, I started with aqua yarn on the left so I pulled those knots to the left. Repeat the knot 5-10 times with the first color.

Step : Using the second ball, on your right, make the same knots pulling tight to the right. Count the knots and do as many as you did of the first color on the left.

Step : Continue alternating the knots from side to side. You'll start to see your multi-colored pattern emerge!

Step : Continue knotting all the way around the hanger.

Step : When you reach the neck and have completely covered the metal, cut both balls of yarn from the hanger leaving 4-5 inches connected to the hanger. You are almost done!

Step : To complete your hangup, tie the two strands into a bow!
