DIY Chip Clips from Clothes Hangers

DIY Chip Clips

If your family is anything like mine, your chip clips always seem to disappear!  I have an easy solution for this problem with these homemade DIY chip clips.

20160108_015550223_iOSSeeing as how we just had a baby, we had to buy all kinds of new clothes for her.  When we took the clothes home and washed them all, we were left with a pile of hangers that would have otherwise gone in the trash.

After playing around with the hangers for a while I went to go eat a sandwich and some chips.  The sandwich tasted fine but as I bit into the first chip, I found it to be stale and having the consistency of cardboard.

That was when I realized I could make DIY chip clips from those hangers!

DIY Chip Clips:


20160108_015617500_iOSI was going to make a step-by-step guide… but really all you have to do is take a hacksaw and cut off the little clips on either side of the hanger.  A hacksaw will cut through that plastic almost as quick as butter.  This will give you a rough edge on one side of the DIY chip clips.  I just left it that way because as I already stated, ours always wind up missing.  If this rough edge bothers you, then take some sandpaper and smooth it down to your liking.
