Nursery Hooks

Nursery Hooks These hooks were designed for my sister's nursery. They turned out so cute that I had to share them with you.

You will need:

  • Balsa wood 6" X 18"
  • 3 Wood Knobs or decorative knobs
  • 3 Picture frame hooks
  • acrylic paint (I used 5 colors)
  • Epoxy
  • Utility knife
  • Assorted paintbrushes
  • Shoebox
What to do:

1. Print out the patterns included at the end of this article. You may need to enlarge them for the correct size. They should be about 6" X 6".
2. Transfer the patterns to the balsa wood.
3. Cut out the shapes with a utility knife.
4. Paint the cut outs, and paint the outlines.
5. Paint the knobs with different patterns. I did a f, some squiggles and pokka dots.
6. On the back of each cut out, mark the placement on the knob.
7. Start your screw for the knob on the backside of each cut out.
8. Attach the knob on the side.
9. Glue the picture hanger on the back with epoxy.

Attach a screw
Attach a long screw into the knobs for easier painting.

Make an X cut into an old box or shoebox. Poke the knob on the screw into the X to dry.
