If you are new to my blog, the heartbeat here is to encourage people to add a Spoonful of Imagination to their lives. I believe we all have some kind of creativity inside of us and the more we stretch ourselves to express that, the more beautiful life can be.
I think you can take almost anything, add in a little imagination, and come up with something that is full of meaning and charm. Today, I hope to prove that with my DIY Painted Wood Hangers.
I pulled together a little acrylic paint, wood hangers, glitter, glue, and sharpies and got started!
The first thing I did was paint my hangers a pretty coral pink on one side.
Next, I used a little painter’s tape to add some stripes. I wanted to leave a little of the natural wood look, so I placed painter’s tape where I wanted the wood grain to show and painted the rest of the hanger.
After the paint dried, I pulled up the tape and the wood stripes looked perfect!
I think the hangers looked cute enough to be left alone, but I wanted to embellish them a little bit more. I used a little glue, paint, glitter, and sharpie to add some fun touches to my hangers. Once they dried, my painted wood hangers were complete!
These little hangers were so fun and easy. My kids love them too and have given me requests to make some for them.
I love when you add a little print to these hangers and hang them on a hook, it is such a beautiful and simple wall decor! So, what about you? Do you think you will be painting some hangers? Pssst if you love this print as much as I do, please check out my sweet friend’s store!

Just wondering if I paint wooden clothes hangers with acrylic paints and then use them to hang up my clothes, will the dried acrylic paint get onto my clothes?
