Christmas Presents/Weihnachtsgeschenke

We have started working on our Christmas presents. Each year we do a craft for relatives. Last year we bought wooden hangers and painted them. So in case you are in search of a craft, here are some inspirations.

Wir haben angefangen, an unseren Weihnachtsgeschenken zu arbeiten. Jedes Jahr basteln wir etwas für die Verwandten. Letztes Jahr haben wir Holzkleiderbügel gekauft und angemalt. Vielleicht dient das dem einen oder anderen als Anregung.


  1. that's such a clever idea, eva. they look pretty. what kind of paint did you use?

    1. We used lightly varnished hangers, I think from Target. I bought acrylic paint (delta, FolkArt and Americana brands) for painting them. We applied one or two layers of a base color before painting the patterns. For the yellow hanger we painted it white first, then yellow. Acrylic paint dries pretty fast, so there is not a long wait in between layers of paint. After we were done, we used FolkArt Waterbase Varnish with a satin finish and put 2-3 layers on.
