Step 1: Determine colors and pattern for the hanger. I went with a simple color blocking method. Tape off areas to paint. Note that the tape will not wrap around the entire hanger evenly. I wrapped the tape on the front and sides. I free handed the lines on the back of the hanger.

Step 2: Paint inside taped off areas. I also painted some of the blocks free hand. I recommend using a straight edge brush – so much easier to paint straight lines! Paint 2 or 3 coats depending on color.

Step 3: Peel off the tape after the paint dries a bit. Let hanger dry over night.
