Hack a hanger: 6 new ways with BUMERANG

The only place for a hanger is hidden inside the wardrobe, right? Think again! Turns out our must-have wooden piece can do so much more than stop your clothes from getting creased. Scroll down to these six eye-catching hacks to kick-start your creativity.

1. Colour code your hangers

Organise clothing and make it easier to find and grab what you need. Paint the hangers in the same shade as your garments for a coordinated look. Don’t let your attention to detail go to waste — display your stuff on a clothes rack.

2. Create some dreamy DIY deco

Personalise your space with a unique wall ornament. Fold and knot strips of leather, lace or wool around the hanger’s bar and fasten using wooden beads. This season feathers are on trend, attach some to the ends for an up-to-date look.

3. Curate a hanger wall

Decorate your wall and get organised at the same time. Hang BUMERANG clothes hangers on hooks (we went for the 8-pack) and attach things you want to display. Add an injection of colour with a colourful scarf.

4. Untangle your shiny bits and pieces

Got an overflowing box of bling? Hang jewellery on a fun piece of wall deco instead. Tie three hangers together with string. Ask a friend to hold the hangers steady while you tie and you’ll be done in no time.

5. Hang your herbs

Why not turn that empty kitchen wall into a multi-sensory display of green pleasure? Use BUMERANG trouser hangers on a rail with hooks and attach lightweight pots of your favourite fresh herbs (we went for paprika, oregano and thyme).

6. Organise your dailies

Call us old school, but nothing beats the smell of coffee and newsprint in the morning. Keep your papers tidy and within easy reach using hangers on screws attached to the wall. Just fold them over the bar.
