Make fast wall hooks using wood plaques!
For this DIY, I wanted to choose something that would be useful for almost anyone – something that could fit in any space, have a variety of uses, be reasonable cost-wise, doable for any skill level and most of all totally customizable! Let’s get started!

  • How to make a hook or rack. Diy Wall Hooks - Step 1
    Step 1

    1. Gather your supplies. For the wall plaques, I chose 3 shapes – a 5×5″ square, a 5×7″ rectangle and a 5×7″ oval. You can buy larger or smaller plaques and experiment with shapes for a one-of-a-kind look. You will also need a drill and a 3/16″ drill bit, 3” ceiling/screw hooks, spray paint, craft paint, glue and paper.

  • Step 2

    2. Spray paint the ceiling hooks and let them dry. I used two coats on each side to ensure even coverage.

  • Step 3

    3. Use the drill and drill bit to drill a hole in the bottom middle of each wood plaque. I didn’t mark the center and just eyeballed it, but measuring precisely is always a great idea. You will need to drill into the wood about an inch or so.

  • Step 4

    4. Next, gather your decorative paper. I chose 3 patterns: a feather pattern, a dreamcatcher pattern, and a chevron print.

  • Step 5

    5. Place the paper upside down and put each plaque on top and trace around.

  • Step 6

    6. Cut out the paper.

  • Step 7

    7. Glue the paper on the plaques. I used a glue stick for this step because it is less likely to create bubbles in the paper but any glue will work.

  • Step 8

    8. Paint the edges of the plaques. You can do this before you glue on the paper, the order doesn’t necessarily matter! I used turquoise for all of them to make them uniform but you can mix and match colors just as easily.

  • Step 9

    9. Wait for the paint to dry.

    **Optional: if you want to make the wall hooks extra durable, put a layer of Mod Podge over the paper and paint.

  • Step 10

    10. Screw in the hooks to the bottom holes and then hang up your new hooks!
