and then I realized I didn't really have the tools I needed, so I improvised. My method is not the best, but it sure is WAYWARD!
Wire Cutter and Pliers would be best, but I used what I had, a pair of garden shears and a small adjustable wrench
Eye protection would have been a safe idea (I didn't have any problems, but you never know)
Step one, cut the wire hanger like so:
On both sides, see?
Then take your
wrench pliers, and bend up the sides you just cut. Mine weren't the best because I was using that wrench.
Repeat on the opposite side
Then use your hand and pliers to bend the hanger like so.
Here it is in action:
Oh, my beloved Bernardo's.
So my attempts weren't as cute as the original, but they are very functional and fast! I made 5 in about 10 minutes. I love that you can use them for flats too.
Have you ever thought of hanging up your shoes?
