Organize and beautify your closet with easy-to-make no-sew fabric clothes hangers.
If you’re in the process of purging and organizing your closet, these fabric clothes hangers are a beautiful way to showcase and protect your clothes.
This is a great way to repurpose those wire hangers that nobody loves, while also using up scrap fabric. They’ll look so pretty hanging in your organized closet and your laundry room.
And no sewing skills are required, which is always a plus.
For this month’s No-Sew Showcase, we’re fluffing our nests for spring. I’m happy to be joining a group of talented bloggers with spring-themed fabric projects that don’t require a needle and thread.
For tutorials on how to make each of these projects, be sure to read to the end of this post.
Now, on to my fabric-covered clothes hangers.

How to Make Fabric-Covered Clothes Hangers
Making a set of these pretty fabric clothes hangers is a snap. No sewing or ironing required!
- Start with wire clothes hangers from the dry cleaner.
- If your hangers have a paper cover, remove that and use it as a template, tracing on your fabric with an erasable fabric pattern marker.
- If you don’t have a paper template, just use your hanger, tracing around the edges; then flip it over and do it again to create a diamond-shaped pattern.
- Cut out from scrap fabric, allowing a 1/4-inch to 1/2-inch seam allowance on each side.
- Starting at the top and what will be the front of your hanger, tuck under the raw edge and secure with glue.
- Working from the center outward, fold fabric over the edge of the hanger and secure with hot glue.
- At the edge of the hanger, be sure to fold over and secure any raw edges.
- Once the top of hanger is complete, fold the fabric over the bottom and pull tightly. Fold edges under and secure to hanger with hot glue.
Tie a coordinating ribbon around the top of the hanger to finish. You can secure the ribbon with a dot of hot glue, if you like.
Or attach a pretty spring flower with hot glue.
