Organize Your Walls With Hooks Made Out of Scraps!

Today - let's make wall hooks! This fun little project is easy breezy, just what we need to start the year off! It's mid- January and I am hoping you are still gung ho on your resolutions. If "Everything having a place" is one of your resolutions (it is one of mine!) - these wall hooks may help!
What you will need to make your own wall hooks:
Plaque for hook back
Paint - your choice
decorative knobs - as many as your heart desires
washers in graduated sizes
hex -nuts - you will use two per hook
Step 1-
The wall hook backing...
The backings for my wall hooks actually came from the "in between" space leftover from the ceiling medallion project
I thought the shape was just too perfect for the pantry makeover and had to use it for my hooks. You can grab wood plaques ready to go from your local craft store or grab a wood slice for a more nature inspired look.
Paint your wall hook back if you are so inclined. I felt the need to - it was MDF after all and I wanted to continue with the crisp feeling.
Find the center of your backing and drill a hole. Think of it as you would if you were installing cabinet knobs.
Ok, I could have gone in any direction for knobs but I came across these at Hobby Lobby and thought- "How kitschy cute are these?!?". They had to come home with me! As I gave them the once over I had an idea- "Why not paint them gold? " Why not indeed? Fancy farm animals... yes please!
3. Putting all the pieces together -
Here is where the washers make sense.
Stack the washers in a graduated fashion (secure with glue if you would like. Before attaching the cabinet knob, add a hex nut. Spin the hex nut far enough up to allow you space to attach the knob to the back then spin it down to secure washers. Secure knob to backing with another hex nut on the backside. That's it! Just attach to wall. We used a nail gun but you can use a less permanent idea by adding a saw-tooth picture hanger.
