Wire Words: DIY wedding hangers

by - October 03, 2013

Hey guys,

a really quick post.

By now if you're a regular reader of the blog you may have noticed how I like to try things out for myself and how I'm quickly becoming a D.I.Y Bride - I'm sure Sharlene will be also, once her date is confirmed and she can start planning.

Well this post is no exception. After a brief morning spell on Pinterest I'd noticed personalised hangers. I had an attempt at making them myself - below is my 2nd attempt of emily and 1st attempt of olivia

On Etsy these sell for around £20 including p&p > these cost me a bit of time and £0.88 each (for a bulk of 3, no paint included).


So I plan to make 6 more for the bridal party and I will save approximately

£114.72 
(6x£20)-(6x0.88)

"So what do you think? They make a nice gift to my bridesmaids and certainly are fit for photography purposes - leave me your thoughts below"

    1. Ah thanks, you're very kind. The making wasn't as complicated as it looks, a bit or reverse thinking required and a lot of patience. It's a huge saving. Hope you enjoy the vlog. Karis
