I was planning on using some old clothes that were set to be donated to the Salvation Army, but, as luck would have it, my friend Kim (photographer extraordinaire), and her sister, aunt, and daughter were headed down to L.A.'s garment district, and they invited me along. I had been to the fashion district before, but had never explored the garment district. It was pretty cool; they got what they needed, and at Michael Levine's loft space, I got what I needed: a bag of fabric remnants for $2.50 a pound. I think my loot cost me all of $2.27.
|Like my "scarf"?! It's a fabric remnant that had some stretch to it.|
(I've got some crazy eyes here!)
|Here's my crazy friend, Kerri, wearing the Rambo headband I bought for her at the loft.|
You can see that we like taking pictures of ourselves wearing various pieces of cloth.
So, like I said, this project is super easy. Cut, rip, or tear your chosen fabric into strips. Starting at the top of the hanger, place a little drop of hot glue on the tip of the hanger and place the end of the fabric into the glue. Don't burn your fingers! Start wrapping; periodically place a dot of glue on the hanger to keep the fabric in place. Continue all the way around the hanger. Tuck remaining fabric and secure with some hot glue. Done!
I decided to use an old scarf of the Cat's (it had a hole in it) on a little plastic hanger.
|Star scarf- I literally just ripped this into a few strips, glued, |
wrapped, glued, wrapped, done!
|Done! Easy and cute.|
