Sweet and Simple Wood Scrap Wall Hook

During the summer, when I taught a “junk art” class at church summer camp, I taught the kids how to make a Nail Head Initial Art (seen here).  I pre-cut the wood pieces before class, and the kids stained the wood, and did the nail art.    A few days ago, I discovered a piece of that wood that I used as a sample.  Since it was already stained, I figured I should make a quick project with it, rather than add it back to the “stuff” piles again.

Several years ago, I got a box full of antique hymnals at an auction.  All of them had damaged covers, but most of the pages are in fairly decent condition.  These are the pages I often share as printables.  The pages were just the right size to fit this scrap wood, so I mixed up some glue with a bit of water and decoupaged the page onto the wood.  Once it was dry, I added another coat over the top, and attached the coat hook,

It was really quick an easy, and it can be used as a single coat hook on a door, a place to hang scarves, or a purse hook.  I opted to just hang a little ironstone pitcher on it.  This is the kind of gift I know my grandmother would have loved, because not only does it have a hymn page on it, but she didn’t like a lot of clutter that made dusting harder, but I think she would have found a wall hook useful, not cluttery.

I have loads more hymn book pages, so I may whip up a few more of these to list in my shop.  This one is available HERE.

If you don’t have any old hymn pages you can use, I have plenty HERE you are welcome to print.

  1. You always come up with the neatest ideas! I have a hymn book that is falling apart I would love to use for this kind of project. Thank you so much for sharing!! 😉 Hugs*

  2. I too work with VBS and am always looking for ideas for the kids to do…Thank you for this idea. I think I will use the nails to form the cross with the Old Rugged Cross sheet music behind it. God is so faithful.

  3. Awwwww, talk about adorable! How sweet would your wall hook look in a nursery? Wall hooks are always useful, but you really took it up a notch with the antique hymnal…now it’s something special to be cherished!
