1. Block-Printed

(Your reaction) Thank you!

The creative part of this DIY coat rack is the block printing. Basically, the bits that can be used for hanging are made using hooks and a piece of wood. And designing this piece of wood is the fun part. Take a look at the tutorial below for block printing tips.

2. Branch

(Your reaction) Thank you!

Have you seen a coat rack made of real branches? Making one is actually quite easy. The only tricky part is to make a base that is sturdy enough to support the branch and its added "coat weight." But with the use of rocks and Plaster of Paris, you'll have a good base in no time.

3. Wood Scraps

I love this recycling idea. If you happen to have wood scraps, you can use them to make a rustic chic DIY coat rack. Jane used knobs as hooks but you can also go for actual hooks. Vintage ones will look lovely with the distressed wood scraps.

This DIY coat rack idea is positively creative, too. The base for this rack is an MDF board. The size is up to you but one that will lean against the wall in your entry way will work best for a minimalist design like this.
