DIY No-slip Clothes Hangers

Do you have problems with your clothes slipping off the hanger? A simple fix using shelf liners can solve the problem!

Materials:  Wooden hangers
                  Shelf liner ( I use the soft, stretchy, slightly sticky kind)

Tools: Staple gun, scissors

1)  Cut strips about 5" wide ( if you have big shoulders you may want to try longer! )

2)  Cut these into 3 1/2"  making  3 1/2 x 5" rectangles

3) Take a rectangle and with the 3 1/2" side begin wrapping the inside edge of the hanger, letting the rectangle drape over the hanger by about 1" ( see photos! ) and give it a couple staples.

5) Do the other side and you have a no-slip hanger! These will help keep the shoulders of sweaters and other shirts from getting misshaped too!


  1. Very useful. It's so difficult to find hangers that really work without spending a fortune!

  2. firstnightdesign, Thanks! I got a bunch of these cheap wooden hangers at Ikea but everything was sliding off so I did this and haven't had anything slide off since!
