We’ve been hit by the stomach bug here, so I haven’t been able to do much crafting…or eating…or sleeping. Thanks so much to Kate from Cheap Crafty Mama for stepping in today and guest blogging for my new Crafting On A Dime series. I’ll turn it over to Kate now as I crawl back to bed.
Hi! I’m Kate from cheapcraftymama.com. I’m so excited to get to be guest-posting here at The Crafty Nest because it is one of my favorite blogs to read and I feel like I have a lot in common with Vanessa! I love to create things (crafts, gifts, home decor, food, and kidcrafts) so I started my blog to share my passion for creating with others! I am a former decorative painter turned stay-at-home-mom and I absolutely love getting to spend every day with my 17 month old son (and I’m looking forward to welcoming another baby this summer!)
I don’t know about you but I am always drawn to the cool doorknobs I see at Hobby Lobby, antique stores, and Anthropologie and I’m always trying to think of ways to use them in my house. Well this winter I felt like I was always picking up my sons jackets that were laying around and as I was trying to think of a creative way to store them where they are easy to grab, so I decided this would be the perfect time to indulge my doorknob fetish! I picked out some adorable knobs from Hobby Lobby (and waited for them to go on sale for 1/2 off) and was able to make these wall hooks using other supplies I already had on hand!
wooden board (0-$2)
3 knobs ($4.50)
wall anchor screws ($2)
Total Project Cost: $6.50-$8.50
Step 1: Use a ruler and pencil to draw evenly-spaced dots so you will know where to drill the holes.
Step 2: Using a 11/64″ drill bit, drill holes over the pencil marks (drilling all the way through the board).
Step 5: Insert the knobs into the holes. Mine fit snugly and could be screwed in, but if they don’t fit tightly you can use some wood glue to hold them in place. Now it is ready to be hung on the wall!
