Yarn Padded Hangers


I just about had a fit when I saw this post over at Making Do With the Not So New( one of my new favorite places to visit)!   I haven't seen these since I was a little girl! I plan to make one myself this week with some of my pretty multicolored yarn skeins that I bought for 80% off when Wal-mart closed out their fabric section last fall.   I had such a fun time making these when I was younger, so I am certainly going to show my kids how to do it.  These hangers are great for keeping slippy things from falling off the hanger and make nice gifts from the grandchildren.
They have a step by step tutorial for doing this on their website, so if you are interested, be sure to hop on over there!  

I'll be posting a pretty fun little article later today. We'll be taking a peek in your make up bag! 

But right now, I've got a bunch of teenagers over here with 40 POUNDS of potatoes and they're  shooting off a homemade potato gun in the front pasture. I think I better keep a good eye on them! Don't you?

Interested in what you have to say about our makeup bags.

Great post - thanks for sharing the yarn hanger idea! I could be wrong, but it looks like it might even be easy enough for me to do. :)

Check out the link I gave you and it may work just fine for you. I think when I was a girl we just pulled the whole ball of yarn around the hanger and through the loop. (It was like tying a knot around the wire over and over again.)We didn't even bother with a crochet hook. If you make one, send me a pix and I'll post it. I may try it again without a hook and post a video. I know that is how we did it..I'm sure. I'd be so excited for you if you did one! Keep me posted!

Welcome to Comin' Home! If you lived nearby, I'd invite you over to my neck of the woods for a nice long chat and a cup of tea out on the deck. But since we can't do that, I hope you'll stay and look around. I love learning new things and sharing what I learn with friends. Comin' Home is where I share tips from my many projects. Let's have some fun together! XO Donna
