Easy DIY Wood Slice Coat Hook Project

Like a lot of people, I am loving wood slice everything right now. So, I was looking for a way to use a wood slice in a DIY project for my home.

Luckily, I came up with a couple of great ways to add this sweet wood slice trend to my home.

I’m so excited to share this DIY coat hook project with you. It turned out so pretty, right?! And, it’s so easy to make!

I love the way this coat hook just pops off my kitchen wall and draws your eye to those fun aprons.

Making your own DIY Towel Rack or Coat Hook is a great beginner level DIY project. There are so many creative ways to design your own using wood, vintage finds, wall art, or even nice cutting boards.

And, they can make great gifts too. So, maybe your friends and family need one of these for their next birthday or at Christmas.

AND, speaking of Christmas, I made this super cute and easy DIY Red Truck Christmas Centerpiece with another wood slice.

How to Make this DIY Wood Slice Coat Hook Project

Quick Step Guide

  1. Sand One Side
  2. Apply Top Coat
  3. Install the Coat Hooks
  4. Hang your DIY Wood Slice Coat Hook Project

Sand Your Wood Slice

Sand one side of your wood slice with 120-grit sandpaper. If your wood slice is still rough looking. Sand it again with 180-grit sandpaper too.

Some types of wood might require more sanding than others. A good sanding will give it a smooth, pretty surface ready for a protective finish.

Clean the dust off your wood slice with a tack cloth or other clean rag.

Here's a super easy wall decor idea using those beautiful wood slices. Here's how to make an Easy DIY Wood Slice Wall Hook, like mine! This craft makes a great gift too.#AbbottsAtHome #WallDecor #CraftIdeas #WoodSlice #DecorIdeas #CoatHooks #WallHooks
I love how cute this Easy DIY Wood Slice Wall Hook turned out!

Protect the Wood Slice with a Top Coat

Apply your favorite water-based, clear topcoat over the sanded side of your wood slice.

I love matte finish Polycrylic top coats, like this one. Be sure to keep the Polycrylic off the bark sides to keep it looking natural.

That Minwax matte finish I used has a very light sheen. BUT, you can also go for a top coat with a flat sheen. For a flat sheen top coat, I love General Finishes Flat Out Flat.

Follow the instructions on your top coat for the best result.

Mark evenly spaced and level spots for your coat hook screws.

Install the Coat Hooks

Once the top coat has dried according to product recommendations, lightly mark where you want the screws for your coat hooks.

I’d go with 1 to 3 coat hooks on a wood slice around 12″ in diameter.

If you want to hang big items, like winter coats or backpacks on your wall hook, you could go with 3 or 4 wood slices in a row, with 1 hook on each wood slice.

Use your drill and a bit slightly smaller than your screws to drill pilot holes on your marks. This will help the screws go in quickly and prevent them from splitting the wood slice.

Use your screwdriver to install the coat hooks on your wood slice.

Drill pilot holes for your screws before installing the coat hooks.

Optional Step: If your hooks slide onto the screw, like mine, you can use a smaller 3M command strip to secure the hook to the wood slice.

My little guys will shake things on the hooks to try to get them off. Sometimes they twist and shake so much, they pop the hook right off of the wood slice.

So, adding a command strip will keep that coat hook firmly in place.

Originally I used a couple dabs of school glue to hold the hooks in place, but that eventually fails too. So, 3M command strips are my preferred way to hold wall hooks in place now.

Hang Your Wood Slice Coat Hook

Now that the wood slice coat hook is assembled you can hang it.

There are so many ways that you can hang a coat hook on a wall. But, I LOVE using large 3M command strips for hanging heavy wall art AND coat hooks.

Coat Hooks like this one aren’t very heavy, but they get a lot of repeated weight and use. So, it’s better to use 2 of the strongest (large) command strips on the back of your wood slice, for extra durability.
