How to make a stick hanger

Sharing helps others too!

The hardest part of this stick hanger project is finding the right stick.

Sometimes you simply have to try an idea just to see if you can do it. This is one of those times.

I saw a hanger made with a stick holding a wire dress. The wire dress was really cool, but the stick hanger really caught my eye. I wanted to try and make one. Does that happen to you too?

  • That elusive stick
  • Baling wire (it’s rustic looking but easy to form)
  • Wire cutters
  • Small nail
  • Piece of wood
  • Clamp
curved stick, bailing wire, wire cutters

My stick found while walking the dogs.

Nail in wood with wire wrapped around it.

Hammer the nail into the edge of your piece of wood. Clamp the wood to the table. Of course, you could hammer the nail into your worktable if you have that kind of table. I was working inside so I didn’t have that type of table. LOL!

Cut about 4 feet of wire. Find the center and wrap around the nail. Grab the ends of the wire & keep hands held wide and wrap the wire. Continue for about 6 inches.

Your hands will get dirty. Maybe that’s why ranchers wear those cool gloves??

Balance the stick on your finger to find the center. My wood hanger will be longer on one end. But that’s part of the charm. 🙂

Make a hook at the top. Then wrap the wires about 2-inches from the center point around the stick. Cut the excess wire in the “back” of the hanger. Hangers this fancy have a front and back!

You might still be wondering, “what would I do with a stick hanger?” Well, let me tell you some ideas.

I know the next time you go for a walk you’ll be check out the sticks! 😀

  1. I have been collecting cool shaped sticks for a couple of years and have an entire barrel full. THANK YOU for giving me something to do with them! I was going to use them for macrame but lost interest. This is perfect!
