Coat Hanger TopiaryAugust 17th, 2010 in member junk
I wanted to make some Ivy Topiaries this year. So I spent a serious amount of time pricing frames. Ouch! Those buggers are expensive! So I decided to make my own...out of coat hangers! I got a box of metal coat hangers from my mom after her annual yardsale. I used three hangers per a frame (2 for the ball and one for the stand). It took a lot of banging with a hammer over a large tree limb(that my husband had cut for camping firewood) to get the rounded shape then I wired the top and bottoms together, and Viola! A topiary for no cost at all! I haven't tried different shapes yet, but I have a few thoughts for next season!
