"grass-diving-dogs"-as(s-) rack

Materials: 8 x BÄSTIS hook, 1 x HAMPEN carpet

Description: “New home, so we needed a new coat rack :) “I thought. What to do? Let’s drive to IKEA.”

We found those cute dog-hooks and drove home but I needed something more. It was too little for my taste. So I spend another afternoon in IKEA and found HAMPEN which looked like grass. An idea was born!

It’s really simple. Take the hooks and find out in what position you want them. Take the measurements of the distances, mark them on the wall, bore holes for the wall plugs and put the plugs into the holes. Fasten the carpet on the wall (I took little nails from IKEA ;) ) and mark on it with needles the position of the holes in the wall. Now screw the screws through the carpet into the wall and put the hooks onto the screws.


Have fun with it and best regards from Kassel in Germany!

    Shout out from KASSEL as well. I made this for my hallway as well, just with half of the carpet and all pink tails! ;)

    I loved it so much we copied it and made one to hang our kid’s coats, but then I got a bit jealous, so now we have one too :)
    Thanks for posting it!

    LOVE THIS!!! I have also made art out of these hooks, I have so many. I bought the cute cheap colored frames from IKEA, and put a couple of those ass hooks in them. Useful, AND great art!

    Very cute and creative! I could totally see that with dog leashes hanging from it!

    I am a dog lover and this is something I would totally have in my house! What a creative idea! It definitely is a great option if you don’t want an ordinary coat hook. Fabulous!

    I love those hooks. I wanted them for our entryway, but my housemates voted against. Bummer.
