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
My stick found while walking the dogs.
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.
- Hang your pj’s. A perfect way to air them out during the day.
- Hang twine and make an art piece like this one.
- Form wire hooks on the end to hold a frame with one of our free printables.
- Hold your favorite top on an awesome spindle. 😉
I know the next time you go for a walk you’ll be check out the sticks! 😀
