Hang fabric or paper wall decor with ease and with no holes in the material with these simple wooden wall hangers!
I found these two screenprinted dishtowels at a handmade sale a couple of years ago. But they were way too fun and pretty to actually be used as dishtowels! Instead I thought they would make some amazing wall art. At the time I didn’t have a good wall for them, but knew I had to have them! You have moments like that, too, right? Gotta have it, but will figure out exactly where it will live later?
Well, lucky for me when we had our kitchen remodeled I ended up having the perfect spot for them! Now they hang next to our “mud room” area of the kitchen on a tall wall that was in need of something. But I didn’t want to damage the dishtowels when I hung them so I came up with a way that didn’t involve creating holes or using glue on them in any way.
I then hot glued small heavy duty magnets across the back of the wood. I’ve had them for a while in my craft stash, but I believe they originally came from Hobby Lobby.
Use twine for hanging.
Place the wood wall hanger face down on your work surface. Lay the dishtowel (or whatever it is you are hanging) on top, not allowing the edge to show over the top of the wood. Place a strip of magnetic metal (also from Home Depot) that has been cut down to the size of the dishtowel over the top of the towel.
These were so simple to make, and I love how they look with the vintage style of the screenprinted dishtowels! And if I ever decide to take them down and use them as something else they won’t be damaged!
