I’m all about buying used stuff for cheap rather than going out and buying something new that serves the same purpose. These towel hooks for my girls cost a total of $5.00, for both. Getting the 5×7 pictures printed cost just as much as the supplies for the project!
They started out as two wooden 5×7 frames for $1 from my local Goodwill store. A coat of spray paint (I used Rustoleum Green Apple in gloss) on each one gave them a fun new look.
I drilled holes through the back, and then cut the screws from the white knobs (they cost a quarter each from the ReStore!) to just long enough so the end of the screw stuck out from the front of the frame. (I’ve found that a small pair of bolt cutters works great for cutting down knob screws.) I screwed them in and then attached a picture frame hook to the back.
My oldest loves that she has a place to hang her towel that she can reach, which is all the better for me because now she hangs it up on her own!
Can you tell which photo I took with my DLSR camera and which one is with my little old iphone? It’s just a tad bit obvious, but it’s rare these days for my 2 and a half year old to even look at a camera, let alone smile, so I had to take what I could get. For now, it’ll just have to work.
