Wire Hanger Reuse: Create a Multifunctional Container

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

This simple DIY project is a great way to transform a spare (and not recyclable!) wire hanger into something useful… and pretty!

Emily Anderson, designer, creative consultant, and author of Eco-Chic Home, has a project for turning a wire hanger into a little container for candy, fruit, or flowers. She modeled the design after the typical container that brasseries use around the world to hold french fries.

Find It! You can actually buy the fils de fer compote in her Etsy shop for $25. Or, try your hand at making one yourself. (You can find the tutorial in Emily’s Eco-Chic book.)
