Make Your Own Backpack Holder Wall Hooks

I recently shared my Children's Homework Message Center post with you. Under each of my boys message centers I created a place for them to hang their backpacks.  Today, I'm showing you how to create these backpack holders:
 They're real easy to make...
Begin with a wooden block.  I found mine at Craft Warehouse.  You can get these at Joann Fabrics and other places like Lowes, Home Depot, etc.
 I spray painted the wooden blocks with black spray paint.
 and let them dry...
I also found these hooks at Craft Warehouse.  I LOVED them, but decided to paint these guys as well, because I wanted them to "pop" off the black wooden blocks.
So I went into my garage and found me some more Krylon spray paint.  I chose to go with the brilliant silver.  My husband had this stuff stashed away somewhere and he tried selling it at our last garage sale.  I grabbed it up and said 'NO WAY' am I selling this.  It's WAY to good.

Seriously, I LOVE Krylon spray paint!!  I've used it many times over.  In the past, I've tried to go the 'cheap' way and buy less expensive spray paint.  I will NOT make that mistake again!  This stuff is the BEST!! (that's my opinion) and I wasn't even paid to say that. ;)  - I really do LOVE it!
After spray painting the hooks, measure and drill holes into the wood.
(pre-drilling the holes makes it easier to attach to the wall.)
Place the hook on top of the block of wood and screw them into the wall and voila...
... adorable little backpack holders!  
I made four of these guys and hung them underneath the homework message centers:
 and I LOVE it!  A place for everything AND everything in it's place.

  1. They look great, I need to get a couple of these up on the wall, bags all over the place and the kids aren't even in school yet! Love how they go so well with everything!

  2. I just found your blog and I am seriously drooling over all your amazingness! I want my house to look like this one day! I have always wondered how to organize my kids toys, and you have set the perfect mold for me to follow! Thank you!

  3. This is a great idea! I don't have children at home anymore but I am thinking that I could use one of these to hold my purse. Thanks for sharing.

  4. What a great idea! Looks wonderful!

  5. I love this!!! How do you attach the hook to the board? And how do you attach the board to the wall?

  6. Hey there Anonymous,

    After pre-drilling the holes into the board, I held the hook against the board and simply ran a very long screw into the holes on the hooks (they are not attached to the board any other way) I just held them up against the board and screwed them straight into the wall. Super easy.

  7. So funny. I found a hook quite similar to yours tucked away in a drawer. I hung it in the foyer so my daughters "twenty-five pound" purse, as I call it, would have a home. Very tired of finding that purse on the kitchen table! Worked like a charm...hope the purse doesn't pull the hook out of the wall.

    I have four boys and one girl I'm going to make this for my boys for this coming school year it will help both of us stay organized thru the year. Thank you for sharing this awesome idea
