One Dollar Wednesday... Coat Hooks

Are you lucky like me? Lucky enough to live near a Michael's craft store? Well, I was pleased as punch to find these fun hooks at Michael's the other day, in the Dollar Section no less. I knew immediately I would use them for One Dollar Wednesday :). Wouldn't you know it, they even still had each one of my children's first initial.



See this lovely coat hook thingy that we've been using FOR YEARS... well, I don't really decorate in primitives any longer, so it's time for it to find a new use...maybe my purse collection.



I really wanted to get something up on this wall, that's just inside my back door.



It's in the laundry room, that needs to be redone sooo badly...




Yikes!



Well, now I have a jumping off point right! So anyway, I started by tracing the letters onto scrapbook paper...



(here are the papers I used for this project)



A quick coat of Mod Podge, and I slapped those papers onto my letters.



I let them dry, and sanded/filed around the edges...




A top layer of Mod Podge, and a little more drying time.

Here they are all finished...



I laid them on these boards that I had in the garage, just to get some ideas, and really like the look. What do you think?

  1. Love this! I'm not crafty, but I've always wondered how to get that scrapbook paper on wooden letters. I need some for my son's room. Thanks!

  4. These are fabulous. I need to look at more craft stores or they really need to have more in my area because I'm so in need of these. They turned out great. Thanks for seeing you had blog awards - sorry I hadn't gotten around to telling you yet!
