Directions for DIY Padded Hangers:
Standard sized plastic hangers work best, though I’m sure thin metal hangers would also work. You will need scissors and about a 20″ section of a Foam Pipe Cover. Measure your hanger from one end to the other – leaving a little extra for overhang as shown. Pipe covers come in lengths anywhere from 3′ to 6′ and usually are 4 per a pack.
The pipe covers have a slit on one side. Measure to the half-way point and make a snip with the scissors into the foam on the un-slit side. This is where you will feed the top, curved part of the hanger through the foam. Gently press the foam (slit side) around the top of the hanger and voilà your padded hanger is complete.
