Wooden Block Coat Hook

by |

Wooden blocks are toys you find that nearly every child has played with. But, what do you do with those old blocks once he’s outgrown them? Well, if you don’t donate them, turn them into something useful!

What You Need
Wooden blocks
Coat hook
Frame backing hook


What You Do

  1. Take a wooden block that’s long and flat on one side. Most of them are anyway.
  2. Attach a coat hanger to the front, preferably the side that’s not so flat. Our blocks were cool enough to have some difference in shape. You can get a cool, antique coat hook at an antique dealer or get a shiny new one at your home department store.
  3. Now, attach a frame hook to the back of the block on the flattest side. Then, you’re done! Hang it on the wall wherever you like.
