Inspiration For DIY Wall Hooks
Use Cabinet Knobs On A Board
I came across a collection of wooden vintage knobs and snatched them up to use for wall hooks.
When I did my board and batten project in this hallway, I used the old knobs there for hooks.
Twist A Pants Hanger Hook
The metal hook from an old pants hanger is easy to manipulate and twist to form a fun wall hook.
Make Wall Hooks From Branches
Branches are great to use for wall hooks. They are easy to find and give an abstract rustic look. Leave the branches natural or paint them, like these, for a more modern feel.
Create A Rustic Hooks With Railroad Spikes
A weathered piece of wood and rusty railroad spikes make a wonderful rustic coat rack.
DIY Faucet Handle Wall Hooks
I have used faucet handles before for wall hooks and love the whimsical look. This hanging rack is especially fun with the painted wood backer that looks like pipes.
Make Wall Hooks With Polished Rocks
Although you could use any rocks for DIY wall hooks, polished stone gives a pretty rustic chic style.
Vintage Shoe Stretcher Hooks
If you collect antiques, you may have some of these vintage shoe stretchers on hand. Not only do they make great wall hooks but it is also a fun way to display your collection.
Use Door Knobs For Wall Hooks
You may already hang things on a door knob. But, if it’s attached to a door it’s not the most idea. However, attaching old door knobs to a wood backer, for the wall, is a perfect solution.
Bend Vintage Spoons To Form A Hook
Vintage silverware is great to use in craft projects. A wall hook is just one of the creative ideas for silverware. By bending the handles, you create an interesting hook to use in a kitchen. Hang towels, aprons, utensils, and more.
Put Spools Of Thread On The Wall
When you hang a photo or artwork by a length of twine, you probably don’t want the nail to show. To remedy this, I hung my photo display by a vintage thread spool. I just used a screw that fit through the spool hole and was long enough to also screw into the wall.
