Are you always on the lookout for new organizational ideas? Me too! I especially love when organization can also be pretty. These knob DIY hooks are just that! The first thing my boys do after school is drop their backpacks on the floor, which kind of drives me crazy. We needed a solution pronto! Don’t have backpacks all over your floor? These cute hooks could be used for so much more! Making them is so easy too…I made a set for my boys and have so many other ideas for using them around the house.
- Unfinished Wooden Plaques
- Decorative Knobs
- Dark Gray Chalky Finish Paint
- Poster Lettering Stencils
- White Bistro Chalk Marker
- Optional: Sanding Tool or Sandpaper, Super Glue
To attach the decorative knob, drill a hole the size of the knob bolt on the front side of the plaque. Because the plaque needs to lay flush on a wall, the back of the hole needs to be drilled the same size or a bit larger than the hex nut that holds the knob in place. Drill this hole about half way through the plaque. The blot needs to be cut flush with the back of the plaque. I cut the bolts before attaching them to the plaque, but I think you could do it either way.
Insert the knob into the front and twist the hex nut onto the back. If you cut the bolt before attaching it to the plaque, you may need a pair of needle-nose pliers to get it tightened into place.
So many other uses too…Coats, purses, scarves, jewelry…I’m thrilled with how these hooks turned out and can’t wait to put them to work. I hope I’ve inspired you to create and would love to hear how would you use decorative DIY knob hooks.
Here’s another idea to create a chalkboard DIY entryway organizer using these fabulous decorative knobs.
