recycling or re-using?

I'm not sure if this falls under recycling or re-using  (maybe both) but it's a handy, dandy letter/pattern holder made from a wire coat hanger.   I used 1" wide strips but they were too wide - I'd try narrower strips next time.  Rather than wrap double sided tape around the entire hanger  if I'd done that I'd have been attached to the hanger  I used a small piece  of tape at the beginning and end of each strip to keep all the loose ends nice and tidy.  This would be a great project for 'kids', too.  You'll find the instructions here.   Have fun!

definitely a good way of recycling !
It's even a good way of embellishing those wire coat hangers that...we must admit...are not very beautiful ;)
well done
