The moment you have all been eagerly anticipating! Yes, here it is, instructions to make your very own Budget Ukulele Hanger.
The Uke Sling from UK Ukee!
I developed this after frustratingly snapping another shoelace and after all these years of having no good use for the long bit of shoelace left over (tight huh). At last I’ve found a useful, recycling, eco-friendly way of using those old shoelaces as a handy Budget Ukulele Hanger… The Uke Sling from UK Ukee!
The Uke Sling from UK Ukee is very versatile! You can use it to hang your ukulele on the wall, hang your ukulele on a coat hook while travelling with your ukulele, hang your ukulele from one finger or even to carry your ukulele over your shoulder when out and about at ukulele festivals and gigs.
No tools required to make your very own budget ukulele hanger (Uke Sling), unless you want to be really smart and use scissors to make things neat 🙂
Here are the 6 easy steps to make your very own Ultimate Budget Ukulele Hanger

Eh voila! You have your very own Ultimate Budget Ukulele Hanger! The Uke Sling from UK Ukee.
|If the Uke Sling gets in your way while playing, just tuck it under itself.If you find the loop on your Uke Sling is too long, simply add a knot or two in the loop, thus shortening the hanging length.|
You can of course use a nice new shoelace for this and it would be recommended, to ensure a long-lasting strong ukulele hanger is produced. I managed to get two Uke Slings out of one new 45″ (114cm) shoelace.
I’ve found that the rounded nylon shoelaces are good for making your own budget ukulele hanger, these can be bought very cheaply on the high street or the internet and come in a multitude of colours and patterns giving you the freedom to customise your ukulele hanger to suit your own personal ukulele experience.
If you have any questions about making your own, just ask, I’ll be happy to help. Please send me images of any you make as I would be very interested to see them and may even post about them!
Free ukulele hangers for all, when you make them out of old shoelaces! The Uke Sling from UK Ukee.
