Clothing and bags hanging on round hooks on a bedroom wall


These round wall hooks will help keep any room tidy. They're easy to make and look great even without anything hanging on them. You'll want to install them all around the house.


1Measure and mark the dowel

Use the tape measure and pencil to measure and mark the dowel. Ours are 35mm but you can make them any length you like. Measure out as many of these depending on how many hooks you're making.

2Cut the dowel

Clamp the dowel to the workbench. We also used some timber offcuts to make sure it was secure. Then use the saw to cut the dowel.

3Cut the circles for the hooks

Clamp the plywood to the workbench. Then use your drill and hole saw to cut out circles for the hooks. You can make the circles any size you like, but we're using a 76mm hole saw attachment.

4Countersink the face of the hook

Firmly hold the circle against the workbench. Use the countersink drill bit to countersink a hole in the face of the hook.

5Pre-drill the dowel

Clamp the dowel to the workbench, using timber offcuts to make sure it's secure. Use the 4mm drill bit to drill a hole through the centre of the dowel.

6Apply glue to the hook

Apply PVA glue to the base of the wooden hook.

7Join the dowel to the hook

Clamp the dowel clamped to the workbench. Then, attach the circle hook, using the drill and 90mm screw.

8Putty the hole in the hook

Use wood putty or filler to cover the hole on the face of the wooden hook. Let it dry.

9Sand the hook

Use the sandpaper to get rid of any excess putty and make the hook smooth.

10Paint the hook

Paint the hook any colour you like and leave it to dry. We're using blue to match the existing décor. We've also just painted the front of the hook, but you can paint the sides and the dowel as well.

11Attach the hook to the wall

Use the stud finder to locate a stud in the wall. Pre-drill a hole and insert a wall plug. Screw the hook into the wall. If you don't have a stud, use hollow wall fittings to attach the hook to the wall.

More D.I.Y. Advice

Health & Safety

Asbestos, lead-based paints and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber are health hazards you need to look out for when renovating older homes. These substances can easily be disturbed when renovating and exposure to them can cause a range of life-threatening diseases and conditions including cancer. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer or visit our Health & Safety page.

When following our advice in our D.I.Y. videos, make sure you use all equipment, including PPE, safely by following the manufacturer’s instructions. Check that the equipment is suitable for the task and that PPE fits properly. If you are unsure, hire an expert to do the job or talk to a Bunnings Team Member.
