DIY: Water Spigot Towel Hook

water spigot handle hooks title

We are having a summer of record high temperatures here in the greater Seattle area. Since our area isn’t used to being in the upper 90’s most of us do not have AC or pools but this year portable AC units and above ground pools are everywhere! {Our house included!} With the arrival of our pool comes wet towels. I’m tired of dealing with grass covered wet towels out in the yard so I whipped together this Water Spigot Towel Hook!

  • cordless drill with 3/16″ drill bit
