Closet Clean-Out: Five Ways to Upcycle Wire Hangers

plant lattice made from wire hangers and a wooden frameSpring is coming, and this year my partner has formally requested that I not permit plants to grow up the side of the house, on account of we’d like to be able to sell it at some point, and that would be more difficult if all the siding has fallen off.

When you don’t want the siding to fall off of your house, then it’s best to use a lattice, and this wire hanger lattice, courtesy of Sally Goodin, does something that I have never seen another wire hanger project do before–it makes the wire hangers look nice!

I'm a writer, crafter, Zombie Preparedness Planner, and homeschooling momma of two kids who will hopefully someday transition into using their genius for good, not the evil machinations and mess-making in which they currently indulge. I'm interested in recycling and nature crafts, food security, STEM education, and the DIY lifestyle, however it's manifested--making myself some underwear out of T-shirts? Done it. Teaching myself guitar? Doing it right now.

Visit my blog Craft Knife for a peek at our very weird handmade homeschool life, and my etsy shop Pumpkin+Bear for a truly odd number of rainbow-themed beeswax pretties.
