Hi, Connie here with a unique re-purposing project to create Art Hangers! I have the perfect adhesives that are up to the challenge of making them.
For the artwork has to be secured and have dimensional elements, I used a combination of the Crafty Power Tape and the 3D Circle White Mix. What a great way to display artwork mixed media-inspired Art Hanger!
The Inspiration Behind the Art Hangers
The inspiration came from the Mixed Media Canvas by Judy Hayes. I loved how she created with the paper dolls giving the canvas a vintage look. My idea was to take vintage pant hangers and re-purpose them to hold ART creations. It could be for family photos, created ART, or just about anything you would like to display in a unique way.

Designer’s Note: The hangers are from resale shops. I paid about a dollar each. The other option is to use new hangers at retail stores and online stores too.
Gather the Supplies
Supplies needed are the hangers and vintage photos. The photos can be found at resale and antique shops, and are pretty reasonable. You know it is all about the hunt, right?
The ART Hanger Process
- Cut the photo 1-inch by the length of the hanger. The hanger I used is 9-inch long.
- Next, I adhered the photo strip to the front of the hanger using Crafty Power Tape.
- Use a combination of the Crafty Power Tape and 3D Circle White Mix to adhere the paper doll embellishments to the hanger.
- Distress the photo strip and the paper doll embellishments with black ink.
Creative Photo Corners Trees
Each ART hanger was created using the steps listed above. Just change or add the paper doll embellishments and use the Creative Photo Corners Black in different ways.
