What if you did the “Mr” and “Mrs” on the top and then did the last name at the bottom? Drill small holes to put the end of the hangers in and then super glue them to stay instead of wrapping it around the hanger, it might be a cleaner look. Also try using 14 or 12 gauge wire, it’ll hold the shape better.

It looks like your wire gauge might be too weak. I agree with Stephanie, you might want a stronger wire. Great start tho! I love how you attached them to the hanger 🙂

I used 12 gauge. I think it helps when the wire has a bit more substance to it. you really just need to make the letters smaller and it will fit. Good luck!

Also, you could print out a template to use and bend the wire to follow.  That’s what I did.  Just open up Microsoft Word, type out the name, change the font size to what will fit in the hanger, print out your sheet and bend the wire accordingly.  It’s kind of challenging to follow to a “t”, but I focused on the size of each letter individually when bending, and it worked out ok.  Mine took me like 5 minutes or less per hanger, so if you take more time I’m sure they’d be great. 😉
