Pier 1 Inspired DYI Glass Knob Wall Hooks


A good friend was telling about these wonderful wall hooks she had seen at Pier one. They were beautiful but a little pricey if you wanted enough for everyone in the house. So I decided to make my own. I am not sure if these are the exact ones she saw but these are the ones I liked on their website. I really loved the hardware on these.

Here is my finished product....

Now it isn't exactly the same but I love it!
It more than serves it's purpose and it only cost me  28 bucks to make.

Want to know how I did it? Here ya go!


What you will need:
Wall hook or hooks of your choosing-preferably wood or something soft you can drill though with enough spacing for knobs.
Knobs of your choosing and enough that your space will allow for.
(I only had room for 2 Knobs)
Power drill
Drill bit slightly larger that your screw for the knob
Tape measure
Marker or some sort of marking tool

I found these wall hooks on clearance at Lowe's for 15 dollars. I absolutely love the look. 


I also found these knobs in Lowe's for around 4 dollars each.
If you can't find them in your local hardware store check the thrift shops. I actually went to a thrift store first but a lady had been in just before me and cleaned them out of all glass knobs. :( Boo! Luckily I found some at Lowe's that were big enough. i am sure you could probably find them online as well.


Now take your hooks and decide where you want your knobs to go. I measured between each hook and just put them in the middle of that measurement. Mark your spots and make sure they are even. Mine were not in the pic but I did fix that.




Next, again make sure your bit is slightly larger that your screw.


Now drill your holes where you marked your spots. Once you are done and happy with their location apply your knobs. Mine had a screw that went through the back of the wood and attached to the knob on the front. I used the screw driver attachment on my drill to make sure the knobs were nice and snug.



There you have it! My new wall hooks for 50 dollars less. I am really happy with how they turned out. They really help my entry way as we don't have enough space there for a mud room or area for that matter.
