Dazzle with these crafty sequined hangers

If you have sparkle-lovers in the house,  these adorable sequined hangers will positively dazzle them!

Someone on our team has a daughter who’s a cheerleader and absolutely loves having blinged-out hangers to hold her costumes and uniforms. These hangers would be perfect for aspiring ballet dancers or future rodeo queens, too — and we know several teens who would be thrilled have one or more of these sparklers to hang upcoming outfits of the day (#ootd).

Preparing the materials for this craft project

This is a very easy craft, perfect for the hesitant or beginning crafter. It’s kid-friendly, too, as long as the child knows how to use a hot glue gun safely.

You also can suggest this as a group craft: Get a team or club together to make a bunch of these crafts. Use them yourselves, give them to friends and family, or donate them to a school’s craft fair fundraiser!
