DIY Craft – Utensil Hanger

Makes 1 hanger

I love to walk through the aisles of the craft store and hardware store and get inspired by the multitude of different materials. This simple project uses various-sized wooden beads and an old wire hanger that I’ve transformed into an object from which you can hang ladles and other kitchen tools.

You will need:

Wire hanger


About 14 big wooden beads

About 63 small wooden beads

Hot glue gun and hot glue sticks or craft glue

S-hook (available at hardware stores; optional)


1. Untwist the wire hanger. Use the pliers to straighten out the twisty ends of the wire.

2. Thread the beads onto the wire, alternating size from time to time.

3. Once you’ve threaded on enough beads to get up to the neck of the hanger, bring the two ends of the hanger together and thread the remaining beads over both of the wire pieces.

4. Thread the beads all the way to the end and bend it into a hook shape.

5. Using a dab of hot glue or craft glue, seal on the last bead. Allow the glue to set, about 1 minute.

6. Display interesting spoons and ladles from the hanger. If you have a tool to hang that does not have a hooked end, use an S-hook to hang it.
