I bent some wire coat hangers by pulling the base down to make a point, creating a diamond shape. By placing two together and taping at the joins it becomes a three-dimensional structure, with the hooks at the top ready for hanging immediately!
They made great loops for chaining together!
And the chain was super fun to run around with, trailing it behind in the wind!
They are also pretty cool to dress up with. Little Pop is trying to put on everything at the moment!
And then we started to attach some to the coat hanger structures. Cakie looped hers over and twisted once around, and I had a go at winding them around for a different effect.
Between us we attached lots of them and then added some ribbons too. We bent another set of coat hangers into a circular shape and wove some ribbon through.
She loved the one with the long, free hanging ribbon attached to it especially, as it kept catching in the wind and rippling.
As usual, what a fun and fabulous Idea! I’m a day behind on my favorites list for the week, and since I’m doing a garden theme, this will be included, because I’ll make it fit with the theme 🙂 Should be up on Messy Kids tomorrow!

These are really good, home made Easter/spring eggs would hang off these perfectly as an Easter/spring mobile.
Wow! I never saw such wonderful pipe cleaners! Now I’m on a search and purchase mission.
