Our master bedroom is small. In fact, it’s smaller than most of the hotel rooms I’ve stayed in. It means that space saving and everyday use needs to be planned and accounted for. But creating a functional space doesn’t mean it can’t also be beautiful. We just have to be thoughtful and creative with each element in the room. Down to the hooks on the door. So I made these DIY wood and leather door hooks to hang a number of different items from the door, using up all the space we can!
- Leather Strap
- 1/2″ Wooden Dowel
- 2″ Dowel Screws
- Drill and Drill Bits
1. Cut the wooden dowel into 2″ lengths. Use the end of the dowel as a template to create a round edge on the end of the leather.
2. Using a craft knife or sharp scissors cut the end round.
3. Bring the rounded edge in line with the opposite end, draw around the round edge and cut it out.
4. Drill through the leather at both ends using a drill bit the same thickness as the dowel screw. Using the same drill bit make a hole 1″ deep through the dowel.
5. Twist the dowel screw through the leather and dowel. Drill a hole in the door for the other end of the screw. Twist it into the hole, moving the leather to hang down.
How easy and stylish they are, I love the natural look!
Thank you Michelle!

I love it ! I wish I could do it right now !
One for this weekend maybe? :)
Love all your DIYs!
Thank you Aimee!
What you published made a ton of sense. But, what about this?
what if you wrote a catchier post title? I ain’t saying your
information is not good., but what if you added a post title that grabbed a person’s
attention? I mean DIY Wood and Leather Door Hooks Tutorial | @fallfordiy is kinda plain. You
should peek at Yahoo’s front page and note how they create article headlines
to get people interested. You might add a video or a pic
or two to grab readers interested about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it might
make your posts a little bit more interesting.

Silly question but could you please tell me where to find the leather strap. I’m thinking maybe @ a sewing supply store?
The one you used is just so pretty and would be the perfect color for my granddaughters room.
Your post and picture, as always, totally attracted me to read more and also want to make this project,.. and you always spell everything correct too ;-)
Thx so much for sharing your awesome ideas & talent!

Love the blog and the post! Just wanted to drop a line and mention that if you don’t already know this, this actual diy is derived from Alice Tacheny’s “Teddy Hook” that she designed and sells. She’s a small designer, so I think its important to note that in this post and give credit to her. I’ve seen her hook floating around pinterest for some time, and actually am making my own inspired version of it, since hers is out of my budget. But thought you should know!
That is really attention-grabbing, You are an overly skilled blogger.
I have joined your feed and sit up for looking for extra of your great post.
Additionally, I’ve shared your web site in my social networks
I was wondering if you ever considered changing the
page layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
But maybe you could a little more in the way of content
so people could connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 pictures.
Maybe you could space it out better?
Hi there, yeah this paragraph is truly nice and I have learned lot of things from
it about blogging. thanks.
