Hello Color
Clothing aside, your closet may not seem like a place for color, but think again! Create gorgeous
patterned hangers in minutes without being an artist or even making a mess. The trick? Temporary
tattoos! That’s right—they’re not just for kids (or for skin!). They may seem like a simple detail, but it’s
one that will make you smile on the days you decide to skip the sweatpants and dress up instead.

I found wooden hangers at Ikea and temporary tattoos online at Tattly. You can also make your own by printing with an ink-jet printer on tattoo
paper. Try applying the tattoos to other surfaces like vases, ornaments, planters, and more!
