The Friday How-to: DIY Board Hooks

Happy Friday everyone…..

As if you don’t have enough to put up on your walls at Christmas time as it is…..

Here is an easy way to recycle old Christmas cards, Holiday sheet music (my fave), holiday scrapbook paper, or pages from an old Christmas book.

You will need:

ephemera of your choice (eg., old sheet music , cards, book pages etc)

Wood board (available at any craft store)

Your choice of paint

Drawer pulls (I got these on clearance at Anthropologie, but you can get them at any hardware or craft store)

Small drill or Dremel tool

Decoupage glue

Embellishments and ribbon of your choice

First:

Prepare and paint your boards the color of your choice.    After paint is dry, place your paper or card on the board in the position that you wish.

Second:

Make a small mark where you want the drawer pull “hook” to go.  Drill a small hole on mark.  Do this before Decoupaging!!

Third:

Decoupage your paper element to your board and let dry.    When dry, gently fasten your drawer pull to the drill hole on your board until secure.

Last:

Distress your board, embellish with stickers or rub-ons (shown) or whatever else you fancy.  Attach a nail tooth hook on back for hanging or use with small easel.
