DIY Modern Wall Hooks

We have been sick over here this week….nothing life altering, but the "getting only the basics done" kind of sickness.  Thankfully, I've had this post on hand for a time such as this. Remember these simple hooks from Reese's room? They were the easiest DIY, and if I hadn't had to buy the parts in packages, they would have cost less than a dollar per hook.

Here you can see them in her room….I'm still deciding if I want to add a third one.
What you need: 
                                                                               -1 wooden spool (found at local craft store)
                                                                               -1 flat wooden circular piece (found at local craft store)
                                                                               -1 hanger bolt (or double sided screw as I call it)
                                                                               -a drill & Forstner drill bit(not pictured)
                                                                                -wood glue (not pictured)

*Make a slight "imprint" with the drill bit into the center of the flat wooden circular piece. Add a thin coat of wood glue to the imprint before pressing the spool firmly into place. Let it dry completely. I actually just screwed the hanger bolt into the spool with my hand. You can leave the hook as is, or paint it however you like. Easy.
