Coat Hanger Christmas Tree


Christmas Tree from Coat Hangers by Vina

I have made several of these trees.  I take the six wire hangers and intertwine two at a time, fitting with the hook inside.  I tie them with the twist ties from bread or trash bags at the point of where the hanger meets.  After all are tied together, I then wrap a strand of twinkle lights, (this is usually 23 or 35 light strand), leaving the plug end at the bottom. I then wrap garland around the exterior of it, starting at the top and it can be anchored with thin wire if needed.  This exposes the lights and they will be covered, you can use any color lights or garland to suit your taste.  I hope this isn't confusing.  Hope it turns out like you want it!

This coat hander Christmas tree is a cute project to make but I am a little confused too on how to put the hangers together. Can you add some pictures or a video? How big does it turn out? I am totally confused.

I would like to have seen a picture, do I straighten all the hangers or are we to over lap the hangers?

If you have any dollar stores, you can also check them out for cheap garland. Try Dollar Tree, Dollar General, Family Dollar, or local thrift stores might have some as well.

I would like to see a picture of the hanger tree.

I have made several. They last for years, are great for kids rooms. I uses pink lights and white garland. Use mini ornaments for more interest. Storknurse2002

This is the first year I had the ability to create christmas crafts for decorating. Ironically, I have a ton of wire hangers that I just hate to throw out and was trying to figure out how to use them for crafts - all I could come up with at the time was a christmas tree and a mobile. Low and behold when I visited this site there it was, my idea for a hanger christmas tree. Go figure. Thank You!!!!

Crafter 7933947 You can find garland cheap at Michael's. They usually have things like that around Christmas. Q & A By the 11 Year Old Craft Master.:D

I found 2 websites with step by step instructions. and 2- all free crafts .com. They also have a picture of the tree.1 is more detailed than the other. Type in recycled coat hanger christmas tree. I hope this helps.

Where do you find garland cheap. I haven't been able to find any garland that is low priced in order to make a little profit with my trees
