    Why not!?!? Depends on your mailbox and if you want to paint it first or whatever. Give it a shot and show us your creative talent!

    After looking at this again, I'm thinking "Are you looking to put one of those pretty cloth flags on your mailbox?" If so, you can drill a couple of holes in the bottom of your mailbox the width of the bottom of the hanger, push the hanger wire through the holes and secure, by bending the ends at an angle and tape down with duct tape. Then put your flag on the flat area of the hanger using Velcro to hold it onto the hanger.

    ABSOLUTELY! In addition to the hangers, you can use flower foam and/or styrofoam to built the swag vertically and create a "base frame". This will give your additional hangers and decorations something to grip and makes mounting on the mailbox easier. Straighten your wire hangers to a workable condition and assemble them around the foam and mailbox. Then additional hangers can then be wrapped/decorated and attached to the initial "frame" to create a lengthened swag.
