Project ReStyle: Modern Mobile

Photobucket

I can't get enough of triangles. There were a few wire hangers taking up space in our closet from the dry cleaners so I decided to put them to good use. I used wire cutters and plyers to form similarly sized triangles, then wrapped them in 1/2" x 18" strips of fabric in aqua, yellow, and gray.

Then I arranged them on the floor and attached them all to the vintage wooden hanger. It took awhile to wrap the hangers but it was an easy project and could be altered to make a variety of shapes.

Here are a few of my favorite ReStyles from our Flickr feed this week!
