Unique and very appealing, this DIY wooden hangers lamp is truly a worthwhile project.

My sister-in-law is obsessed with light fixtures. She’s drawn to those non-traditional, quirky ones. I can’t say I blame her. With almost everything mass-produced nowadays, getting something unique is becoming more difficult.

She’s been raving about a certain lamp for the longest time. She said it was made out of wooden coat hangers. At first, it was kind of hard to imagine but when she showed me the photo, it made perfect sense. I understood why she loved it so much that I offered to help her DIY it.

You can make several pieces to give as gifts to family and friends.

She wanted the piece to stand out so the first thing that we did was get matching coat hangers. We do have several wooden hangers at home but she wanted a different kind. We bought a little over a dozen and then we got to work.

I must say it was a meticulous project, one that involves a lot of precise measuring and cutting. Once you get the hang of it, the rest becomes pretty easy. Plus, the finished product was more than awesome! We loved it so much we’re considering making several for our family and friends.
