Braided Clothes Hanger Covers

Does anyone have a pattern for braided clothes hanger covers made out of wool and/or material? Thanks.

Things You'll Need:

Clothes hanger (one plastic or two wire hangers taped together) 4 plastic shopping bags (two different colors) Scissors

Cut the plastic shopping bags into loops. To do this, first cut the bottom off, and discard this piece. Then, cut straight across, about 2 inches from the new bottom edge. Repeat this process until reaching the top of the bag. Discard the handles.

Join loops of the same color to make a string. Thread the top of one loop through the bottom of another loop. Then take the bottom of the second loop and thread it back through the top of the other loop, and pull it to form a knot. Each string should have five loops to start with.

As a point of reference, this is the same way kids make strings of rubber bands.

Find the centers of two plastic strings of different colors. (For our purposes, we will call them red and blue.) Lay one across the other to form a cross. Place the tip of the clothes hanger at the center of the cross.

Fold the strips so that the two strips of the same color are on the same side. For example, the two red are on the left and the two blue are on the right side of the hanger.

Begin braiding with the top blue side string. Grasp the string, and wrap it around the hanger between the two red strings so that it now becomes the bottom blue string.

Wrap the top red string around the hanger between the two blue strings, so that it becomes the bottom red string.

Repeat Steps 5 and 6 to completely cover the hanger, adding more plastic shopping bag loops as needed.

Tie a knot to end the braid at the neck of the hanger.
