Tired of tripping over the collection of book bags and coats as you open your door? Get organized with our easy DIY coat hooks. Each hook costs about seven dollars to make, and depending on the age of each of the kiddos they may be able to Mod Podge the circles themselves!
You’ll need to purchase 10″ wood circles and cork letters at your local craft store, but you probably already have items such as scrapbook paper, scissors, spray adhesive, decoupage glue and a hot glue gun on hand. Check your toolbox for a disposable foam brush, robe hooks, drill, screws and screwdriver.
Grab the wood circle and a piece of scrapbook paper, giftwrap or material that best describes your child’s personality—sports, music, or super heroes? There’s a paper out there for everyone!
