Here's a great way to make a paint stirrer in just seconds with something that nearly all of us have in our home… a wire hanger.

First snip off the hanger hook and straighten the wire.  Then bend one end of the wire into a zigzag shape.

Cut any excess off the straight end and insert it into any drill.  Tighten the chuck.

Place the stirrer into a can a paint and start the drill (use a slow speed at first). 

The stirrer can simply be tossed away when you're finished, or, wipe it off and save it for next time.
