Give your guests something to talk about!  This is a fun twist on the traditional coat hanger that makes a great conversational piece using something everyone has on hand! I didn't have any hooks on hand and always have extra odds and ends of silverware so I thought - why not! This wooden craft project makes into a rustic coat hanger perfect for your entry, a kid's room, or mud room.  It will also make a whimsical home-made gift for someone special!

Difficulty: Easy to Intermediate


Craft board - this one is 5"x32" 


Craft Paint

Paint brush

Permanent Glue

Sturdy Forks and pliers to bend them


craft board


For this craft board I was fortunate enough to find a board in a clearance section of a Home decor store that was already painted and ready to hang so I just glued a metal sheet to it using permanent glue and added ribbon to the back to hang. This is one of my frugal finds for sure!  You never know what you can find in the clearance section of a craft or decor store.  It will not only save you $, but several steps in crafting...but if yours is not painted yet...

Step 1- Paint board and set aside to dry, meanwhile bend forks in half using pliers if necessary.

Step 2- You can glue or nail forks to the board but make sure to nail before bending them. To glue forks use a hot glue gun and permanent glue mixture- make sure to lay them out evenly spaced before gluing.

Step 3- Tie ribbon on back and display!
