DIY - Create an original animal hook

by Émilie Ouellet


Throughout the years, your little ones pile up old toys and you don't know what to do with them?

Here's an original DIY activity to transform your kids' toys in a design clothes hanger for your children's bedroom!


  • Wood plank
  • Plastic animal toy
  • Utility knife
  • Glue
  • White spray paint

1. Cut the animals in two

Sensible souls to withhold! Using a utility knife carefully, make sure your kids are not anywhere near the working table.

2. Paint the animals

With the spray paint, more than one coat of color might be necessary. 

Make sure you let it dry between each application following the products instructions label.

3. Determine the position of the animals on the plank

Using a long ruler, measure the location of the hooks to ensure they will be centered and at an equal distance from one another.

All that is left, is to hang it on the wall - and that's it!
