Easy Wooden Hanger Gift Idea with Fusion Mineral Paint

I was off to a kitchen tea/bridal shower a couple of weeks ago and the day before, I had an idea to add a personal touch to these plain wooden hangers to include in the basket of household items I had purchased for my gift. (swipe the centre line across the screen to see before and after pic below.)

Sanding them down with my Sandi Hands sanding gloves took less than 60 seconds. (You can purchase these in our online store HERE)

Fuson has excellent coverage, so I only needed one coat of each.IMG_0516I used Fusion’s Gold tint metallic paint to stencil butterflies on the bride’s hanger (she’s a butterfly kinda gal).IMG_0517And Fusion’s numbers stencil came in handy to create a “1,2,3,4” on the Groom’s hanger. (He’s a drummer, so I’ll let you figure that out.)IMG_0518I added a little message to the hanging bar as a little reminder to “Hang in there” when the going gets tough, cuz we all know there will be tough times. Relationships are valuable, and need to be worked on to keep them alive. (my two bits worth).IMG_0523I used MMSMP Furniture Wax to give them a nice sheen to finish, but this is an optional step as Fusion Mineral Paints have a built in top-coat, giving a great matte finish that is fully wipeable. Since I sanded back the edges for a vintage distressed look, I opted to wax these to seal in the raw wood edges for a nice finish.IMG_0529 IMG_0527 IMG_0528 IMG_0530 IMG_0531 IMG_0533 IMG_0534All ready to go into my bundle of household goodies for the happy couple!

My basket of goodies contained a number of items with a little note attached to each. A fun idea for a personal touch to your shower gift.FullSizeRender
