Since I had the materials on hand (thanks to my killer Michaels trip”¦ yes, I just referred to a shopping experience at Michaels as killer ”“ I know you understand), I dove right into my first project.
At this point, dear bridesmaids – read no further! These are little treats for you and I’d like them to be a surprise. Mmkay?
I had become completely inspired when I saw these sweet DIY hangers ”“ thanks Mrs. Gloss and MrsPaetz!)

First off, I needed to find a font that I liked. I knew I had to turn to my favorite font site ”“ Fonts for Peas! If you haven’t been to that site, prepare for cuteness overload. Ultimately I decided on Pea Stacy.
And let the DIY begin!
I started by printing out each letter ”“ to determine the right size, I just printed multiple sizes on one sheet and cut out the one that fit best.
Then I turned the letter over and shaded it with a pencil.
Here you can see better how I shaded the back side”¦and please take note that our laundry is on standby ”“ it will make me feel better if you also avoid housekeeping duties while working on DIY projects. Thanks.
I taped the sheet with the shaded side against the hanger. I used a regular pen to go over the letter a la elementary school style.
I used the pencil marks as a guide to create the bling. BLING!
Once I got the hang of it, things moved along pretty quickly and before I knew it”¦I was done!
Ta-da! I did one for each of my bridesmaids and one for me in blue. I can’t tell you how much I adore these ”“ it was such a fun and easy project. I know the girls will love them!
