Upcycle Your Old Wire Clothes Hanger Into A Mounted Book Holder
If you have a box of old wire clothes hangers, you can use them to hold your magazines or books. They're easily bendable, allowing you to create a small book rack.
Once you gather all your materials (wire hanger, nail, hammer, and magazines or books), decide where to hang your wire rack. You can make the bookholder in less than 15 minutes.
First, shape the wire hanger by taking the legs and straightening them out as flat as they can go. The body should look like a vertical rectangle with the hook at the top.
Then, bend the corners slightly to create an L-shape and bend the L-shape in half to create a U-shape. Finally, hammer the nail, hang the wire holder, and display your books.
