DIY: Decorated Cloth Hangers

With napkin decoupage it's super easy to spice up old wooden cloth hangers. To follow the tutorial you will need:

✧ Cloth hanger of choice
 (I heard the technique also works on plastics but I haven't tried it myself yet)
✧ Napkin glue
alternative you can use a paste and glue mixture but I didn't have at home either of it 
✧ Napkins with motive of choice
✧ Paintbrush

Before you start you maybe want to paint your hangers white to make the outcome more vivid and opaque.

Here you can see the difference. The wooden background can also be a nice effect but it wasn't what I was aiming for this time.

When your cloth hangers are painted and dried pick your napkin and cut out the parts you want on your hanger.
Only the very top layer of the napkin is needed so remove the others.

Lay the napkin on the hanger.

And put glue on it. The napkin will be very delicate so be gentle and only brush in one direction. Moreover, don't touch the napkin right after you applied the glue, it will become smeary!

Work along the whole cloth hanger. For the backside it's easiest to let the frontside dry and then turn it around.

And you are done (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧

Different napkins can create different kind of effects:

Stripes are hard to work with (°ロ°)☝ For beginners I would recommend a pattern that isn't geometrical.

The flowery one on the top is my favourite. Reminds me very much on shabby chic furniture (*◕‿◕*)

I hope you found this tutorial useful!

Pinky Brown

Headband - Selfmade // Blouse - White Moon // Cardgan - Offbrand //
Skirt - 2nd Hand // Shoes - F21

Now that the semester at uni started anew and Spring is approaching I feel like dressing up a lot more again. 
I love the collar of that blouse, it just makes every outfit even cuter (ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ*:・゚✧*:・゚✧
I didn't know what to do with my hands so I'm holding my Polaroid xD

Also, I curled my hair (◕‿◕✿) Do you like it?

New Layout ~!

This is just a short post to inform you that I'm still alive ^__~ 
As you maybe noticed (or maybe not^^) I changed the design of my blog so now everything is in shiny soft pastel colours.  (◕‿◕✿)  I've fallen in love so much with pastel colours again lately and having my blog like this feels so good!
I'm also planning to change the name of my blog because Dipped in Chocolate just doesn't sound right anymore somehow but I still need some time to come up with a new name (´・ω・`)
I hope to post a lot more again as soon as everything is settled. 

See you soon!
