Once a kindergarten teacher, now your go-to guide for all things DIY. My passion for teaching didn't stop when I left the classroom - I merely switched from ABCs to DIYs. I've learned a lot from transforming my own home from scratch, and now I'm here to pass on that knowledge to you.

When my guest bedroom also became my office, I didn’t do much except move my desk and supplies into the room. The walls already had a few decor pieces but not what I wanted for an office. I finally decided to do something about it this week! I wanted to display motivational quotes and images on the wall that will keep me going on those hard days where a little push is needed. But I also wanted to be able to rotate the quotes and pictures without having to put a ton of holes in my office wall.
Picture frames seemed too bulky for my space. That’s when I thought of creating glitter picture hangers. I transformed wooden pant hangers I found at Target into picture hangers with a little spray paint and glitter. This was a quick project with amazing results! When gold glitter is involved, it’s bound to be magical. Plus, I can continuously rotate my prints to match my mood or the season.
These sparkly glitter picture hangers are the perfect addition to my office. The neutral color will allow me to place unlimited types of prints in the hangers and also match flawlessly. In just a few easy steps, you can make a set of your own. For an added bonus, I’m showing you how you can quickly and successfully clean up the glitter mess that’s left behind. What are we waiting for? It’s time to start creating!
|| Wooden Hangers || Gold Spray Paint || Gold Glitter || Glue || Paintbrush || Scotch-Brite™ 50% Stickier Lint Roller || Poster Board
Step 1: After gathering your supplies, spray paint each hanger gold. Make sure to get all of the sides. Allow them to fully dry before moving on to the next step.
Step 2: Place your hanger on a poster board and apply the glue using a paintbrush to the front of each wooden hanger. Apply enough glue to allow the glitter to stick.
Step 3: Sprinkle the gold glitter on top of the glue covering the entire area.
Step 4: Shake off the excess glitter and allow the hangers to dry.
Step 5: Once the hangers are dry, apply a coat of glue on top of the glitter. This will seal the glitter and prevent it from continuously sprinkling off once they are hung. Don’t worry, the glue will dry clear.
Step 6: Once the glue has dried, place your favorite prints in the hangers and display them on your wall!

You know how walking through Target to grab just one item turns into grabbing several? After picking up my wooden hangers, I noticed the 8″ Scotch-Brite Lint Roller as I started browsing even more. It’s huge and has the best handle. I knew this would be perfect to pick up the glitter because let’s face it, the vacuum is a pain to get out sometimes. I even picked up the 4.8″ lint roller as a back up. Here’s exactly where you can find this product in Target:

I’m so glad that I bought these two lint rollers! I’m telling you, as much as I love glitter, sometimes it’s my enemy.

Using the 8″ lint roller, I was able to get the glitter up and out of my carpet within minutes.

After my cleaning spree, I noticed one more area the glitter attacked. Remember how I told you this is for my home office that’s also my guest bedroom? Well, this also happens to be where I complete most of my DIY projects including this one. After knocking and blowing off the extra glitter from the hangers, I guess I did my job a little too well. Glitter ended up on the bedspread out of all places. Hello smaller lint roller! I was back in business after one quick swipe.
