These wooden paint-dipped hooks are simple and quite easy. I bought a thick wooden dowel for a few dollars at my local hardware store and cut it into multiple pieces. If you don’t have a saw at your disposal you could use wooden blocks like you would find for children. That would be a  fun alternative and eliminate the need for a saw. It would add a bit of cost probably, but still be well worth the trouble!

Dip the blocks into the paint, let drip just a bit, and then roll carefully on a towel to remove excess. You may only need 1 coat, but for a few colors I did need 2.

Be sure that when you drill the holes into the blocks you don’t make them too big…you need those screws to grip. I used a pliers to turn the screws into the wood because they can be a bit difficult to turn. Using the pliers is easy peasy.

Using those tips, these DIY wooden coat hooks are very straightforward and simple.
