I’ve finished a new collection for my American Girl dolls. During the photo-shoot I faced that I need a doll clothes hanger to show the dresses’ front and back. Sure, I made the first step and ordered wooden hangers from eBay. But estimated delivery is at the end of August.
What to do if I need hangers immediately? Of course, make them myself!
I drew a hanger pattern, cut it out, traced it to a thin cardboard and also to a corrugated cardboard.
Then I cut all cardboard details out and made a small gap on the details from the corrugated cardboard.
After that I glued two details from the corrugated cardboard.
Next I glued the details from the thin cardboard on both sides of detail I got on the previous step.
And finally I glued a wall hook into the gap on the hanger.
I decided to use decoupage to embellish my hanger. I printed out a seamless pattern on an ordinary printer paper and glued it on the hanger.
