Do you hang your purse from one of those coat hooks? I do and I can’t even count how many purse handles I have damaged by doing that and I didn’t even realize that the hooks were causing the damage. For my last birthday my in-laws spoiled me with a gift certificate that I used to get a very nice purse. I started to hang this purse on the door knob in the laundry room and after a few months I realized that the purse handles still looked like new and that’s when the light bulb went off. Using the door handle as a purse hanger wasn’t very practical, so I decided to make a new purse holder with the same shape of the door knob.
What you need:
- A thick piece of wood
- A fence post cap
- Sponge Brushes
- Sand Paper
- Curtains rings
- Hot Glue Gun
- Color String
- Metal Hooks
I wanted a fun bright and girly design.
I used my Cricut to create a Choose Joy Stencil.
I put the fence post cap through the bottom of a plastic cup for an easier painting and drying process.
Pre-drill a hole to screw the post cap right in.
Originally this was only going to be a purse hanger, but I had to find a new solution to my Pinterest fail scarf project. You know, the one where you use curtain rings on a hanger to hang all your scarfs. Great idea, but mine ended up hanging all to one side which drove me crazy.
Stephanie from Simply Dream & Create did an awesome guest post of a Creative Scarf Hanger over on Titi Crafty and I thought that was the perfect solution to my scarf problem. So I implemented that I idea to my purse holder.
I played with the positioning on of the rings till I found a layout I liked. I a hot glue gun to set the rings in place.
I added some pink string.
I drilled some holes to the bottom and added 3 hooks to attach the rings.
Do you like it? Could you use one of these? I love how this turned out. Thanks for stopping by.
