Vintage Trouser Hanger Fall Door Swag

I still have quite a few vintage wood and metal hangers in my garage, and I got the idea to use a trouser hanger for a door swag.

Here is my hanger, a weedier, grassy, faux floral spray and a sunflower spray with pine cones and colored leaves.  I found them at a local drug store. In this photo, I had stained the wood with a darker stain, but opted to go in the end with a natural wood tone hanger that showed up better on my terra cotta door.

It was so easy.  I just bent the wires over and stuck the curved part of the wires inside the trouser hanger.

 I tied a few pieces of raffia on the wire part of the hanger.

Here is my vintage trouser hanger fall swag hanging on our side garage door (that is under my covered patio, so it will be semi protected).

Very easy, and I was able to re-purpose a vintage hanger!

  2. Carlene, my sis just brought up a few trouser hangers for the vintage sale we had Sat. They didn't sale and I thought I would do something with one of them. Thanks for the inspiration!

  3. Super, super cute. You always come up with the best stuff. I was pinning away last night and it was outside gardening stuff and I thought about you much of the time because it so reminded me of you!
