Thank you for stopping by Make Something Sunday, where we post a new craft every Sunday from our favorite DIY bloggers! We want to inspire you to create at home with simple and fun crafts. Let's get started!
Today we are featuring a craft from Francesca of Fall For DIY. Francesca is from the UK and has a degree in textile design. She loves projects that are on trend, as well as very useful. Today we will be making Francesca's Wood and Leather Door Hook, a beautiful craft to add storage to a small space! The hook is made from simple materials: leather strap, 1/2" wooden dowel, and a 2" dowel screw. You will need a drill and drill bits as well to complete this craft. Etsy is a great place to buy leather strap! There are tons of texture and color options. The wooden dowel and dowel screws can be found a local hardware store. If you can't find 1/2" wooden dowels, maybe you or a handy friend can cut a longer wooden dowel into smaller pieces.
If the natural look isn't your thing, it would be cute to paint your wooden dowel. Paint your dowel as the first step of the craft, and use All Purpose Acrylic Paint. Be sure to allow the paint to dry completely before continuing on with the rest of the steps. We at Neighborly think painting the dowel white would look very modern and fresh!
