Easy to make Personalized Girl Gift

This is a really easy idea to do with basic wood hangers. This hanger is an unfinished wood hanger I ordered from an online organization store for $1. I painted it with white acrylic craft paint and decoupaged an "H" chipboard embellishment onto it. I painted the navy blue dots around the letter before doing the topcoat. I sprayed the whole hanger with clear matte acrylic sealer and added a bow.
These are a few matching hairbows I made to go with the gift.
This gift cost less than $20 to make!

A set of these cute hangers would be great for a baby shower gift made in colors to coordinate with the baby's room.

I bought a basic navy photo album with a slot in the front for a picture. (this one came from Michael's with a 40% off coupon for about $7) I used my embroidery machine and made an "H" on a piece of navy gingham fabric for the slot. I also glued a coordinating grosgrain ribbon to the album. If you don't have an embroidery machine you could hand embroider or use your printer to make a letter on pretty paper.
