In order to make your own hangers for your American Girl Dolls' clothes, you will need the following: wood, nails, a hammer, a marker, one American Doll hanger (to be used as a pattern), 14 gauge wire, pliers, and wire cutters. In order to make your wire hangers, you need to begin by tracing the hanger onto the piece of wood. Then, hammer nails into the pattern at strategic points, places where it bends. Wrap the wire around the pattern. After it has been shaped, twist the two sides together. Form the head into a hook. Cut off the excess, with wire cutters. Flip the hanger over to finish shaping.
