DIY American Girl doll clothes hanger

DIY doll clothes hanger

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.

  • That’s a great idea and much better than having to wait for them from Ebay, plus they are very pretty with the decoupage paper on them.

    • Thank you, Sharon!

      I’ve already got the wooden hangers I bought on eBay, and have to say that mine is not bad. And even better because of decoupage. I think how to improve the wooden hangers right now 🙂 They are required sanding at least.
