Get hooked on this fab DIY!
Though some say that the copper trend is on the way out, for me, it is still a favourite style of mine. Plus copper looks great in any space and doesn't seem to date as much as other trends. As we are doing up our bedroom at the moment, I have been looking for some interesting coat hooks to go on the back of our bedroom door. Most hooks as you can imagine are slightly on the boring side, so when I came across these copper pipe hooks, I was hooked myself! To buy these though, they can be quite pricey, so Pete and I realised that we could make some ourselves. Hooray! All you need is a few cheap copper accessories and a pipe cutter and away you go.

Check out how to make these funky copper hooks here......
