As key holders Can’t remember where you left the keys this morning? A little help from these gorgeous, labeled hooks will lessen the stress and worry associated with last-minute panic! Attach these hooks by your doorway for easy access on the way out.
As a belt and scarf organizer Stop digging underneath your clothes for that elusive scarf. Group them together with your belts and accessories using a DIY belt organizer – stick three self-adhesive hooks onto a wide pants hanger.
As a charging companion Who can escape the tangled wire mess? The price of technology is not lost on us. Use special, self-adhesive hooks to loop the cords into place onto a wall or tabletop to make charging time neater.
As cupboard organizers Maximize your cupboards with this trick: attach small hooks onto the top of your cupboard for your cups. It will free up storage space and make it easier for you to get the cups without risking broken dishes.
As an arts-and-crafts buddy Make your arts-and-crafts hobby more enjoyable by repurposing a multi-tier pants hanger for your paper supplies. You’ll be able to arrange your various gift wrapper sheets, and see all the patterns at a glance.
As a ribbon dispenser This hanger-turned-ribbon-dispenser will make gift-wrapping a breeze. Re-use an old wire hanger – unfasten the twisted portion at the top, slip in the ribbon spools, then twist the top again to close.
As a magazine hanger Hangers aren’t just used to hang clothing or towels. You could also use it to hang magazines in your bathroom. You can even mark the page and start where you left off the next time you sit on the throne.
Perfect combination A hanger or a hook? Why not use both? Use an inverted hanger to hang your jacket, umbrellas, and other whatnots – just nail it securely onto a wall or door. It will also add a quirky touch to any foyer.
