A cross-post from my school blog

I have my classroom on another page on blogger and I know this craft is a good post for both spots.

In a few weeks it will be coat weather and due to schedule changes, my younger classes will be coming right to ART after recess.  To keep coats and scarves from becoming a jumbled pile, I thought up a coat rack to hang outside my classroom.

Using the big box of spare spools, some yarn leftovers, and 2 previously painted and distressed-naturally 2x4s from my wood pile at home,  I made this quick coat rack.

Paint is Glidden Olive Oil (thank you free quart giveaway.  I knew free paint would always come in handy for an artist!) 

3" drywall screws held the spools in place and a few more secured it to the wall.   Hot glue attached the yarn to each spool.

I think I'll go down the row with the hot glue gun and my button box to cap the screws in the center too.


  1. Thanks. You want to know the funniest part of all?

    Everyone thinks it is a piece of art and no one touches it. When I say, "Justin, you can put your sweatshirt on the coat rack" everyone that hears me says. "oh!! That's what it is! I thought it was art!"
