Our home doesn't have over-the-door hooks, where we can hang bags, shirt, jeans, etc., so I decided to create one myself. Here are the things I used:
A piece of wood
Fabric
Bostik No More Nails All-Purpose Grab Adhesive
5 hooks
Hand saw
Scissors
Pencil or pen
Ruler

Sand paper

First, you need to measure how long your over-the-door hook should be. Originally, the wood I have measures 1 meter in length, so I was able to create 2 over-the-door hooks. Hubby used a hand saw to cut it in two pieces. Don't forget to sand the wood first to make sure it becomes smooth, especially if you're going to paint it. Note that sand papers have several kinds in terms of the texture, so what you'll be using depends on how rough the wood is.

The next thing to do is to measure the wood, so you'll know the amount of fabric you are going to use. The wood I used isn't very big, but it isn't too small, either. Take a look at this:

Now is the part where the fabric is to be glued to the wood. If you're going to use Bostik No More Nails All-Purpose Grab Adhesive, you only need a small amount of it, because a little goes a long, long way, and it is very sticky! The only downside is that while it claims to have the ability to glue wood shelves onto the wall, unfortunately, you are still going to need a bracket or any other kind of support to ensure that they stay in place. I purchased this adhesive because I thought I can use it alone for my wood shelves, but it failed me.

Anyway, here's how I glued the back of our over-the-door hook:

Make sure that the fabric is stretched tightly to avoid creases. I also ironed it to remove some.
In the image above, what I did here was that I folded the fabric like how I'd normally fold a gift wrapper each time I wrap a present. Again, be sure to stretch the fabric firmly to avoid creases. I used Bostik to secure it.

Voila! Here's the final outcome!

Not so final, though. I asked my dearest hubby to attach the hooks, to which he gladly did! :)

And here's the finished product!

With the size of wood I have (the one that was cut into two pieces), I can make two over-the-door hooks with a yard of fabric. And if you're going to ask how much did this item cost me, I'd say more or less P80 apiece. Very cheap, huh?

Until my next post!
