Start with two hangers and place them in this order so that the hooks are up and they're in a triangle shape.

Plastic Hanger Star instructions

1. Assemble 2 Hangers to create the star points

How many plastic hangers make a star?

You’ll need 10 hangers in a color of your choice, I’m using white hangers.

Start with two hangers and place them in this order so that the hooks are up and they’re in a triangle shape.

Next, I'll be using white zip ties I found at Dollar Tree.   Start with three zip ties and place one at the top corner where they overlap and then one at each of the hooks.  Now that they're in place go ahead and zip tie each of those sections closed.  Use scissors to clip off the excess zip tie.

Repeat this process for all 10 hangers so that in the end you'll have five sets.

Now that all five sets are ready you're going to lay them all out into a star shape. I laid zip ties around all the corners and all the edges of the inside of the star.  I started by zip tying each of the corner sections together so that the star would be completely connected. I cut off the excess zip ties.

2. Place the 5 Plastic hanger points in a star shape and assemble them.

Now that all five sets are ready you’re going to lay them all out into a star shape. I laid zip ties around all the corners and all the edges of the inside of the star. I started by zip tying each of the corner sections together so that the star would be completely connected. I cut off the excess zip ties.

I decided I didn’t need to do the center of each of the sections, but I did realize that I needed to add some reinforcement. I had already added zip ties to the inside, but I added additional zip ties to the outside. So each set of five is now connected on the top and the bottom. Once I had that zip tie in place I cut off the excess.

I decided that each of the points of the star was not tight enough so I pushed the current zip tie around the corner and tightened it and added a second zip tie on the other side.   This definitely made it more stable.   I then cut off the excess of that as well.
