This week we thought we would make some of those snowflakes that they make with the hangers. As I watched several different YouTube videos, I realized that you could do so many other things!
So we decided to make a flower for a friend that has been going through a rough patch!
So the supplies are: hangers, cable ties (2 sizes), an ice cream lid, paint, PVC pipe and rebar.
First we laid out the hangers thinking we needed 18, from the videos, but only ended up using 13.
Then we decided where to tie the hangers together for the most stability.
Then the lid was more of a challenge than we expected. The spray paint didn’t cover the logo very well and it is flaking off already.We will need to figure out the flaking issue fr the next one. We marked the lid where we were going to put the ties and drilled holes for that before we painted. Then we attached it to the hangers with the ties.
Then next part was figuring out how to attach the pvc. I didn’t want it to just sit right flush with the ground. So we drilled a hole about 1/4″ from the top of the pipe and put a tie through that so it would sit on the top of the rebar. We put 2 ties through that hole so that we had one to attach it to the flower as well.
Then we used another tie to attach the pipe on the lower side of the flower.
The way we hooked the top of the hanger around the other hanger caused them all to bend in slightly and make it look more like a flower I think!
We hammered the rebar into the ground and slid the pipe over the rebar! I can’t wait to make me one!!!
