Jeff and I have been using this DIY hanging wall organizer for hats and bags in the bedroom. And then in the bathroom, we use it for towel storage and other bathroom items that get used a lot…my dry brush, the hair dryer (which is in that polka dot bag), etc.
Here’s what you’ll need to make your own…
- 36 inch long dowel rod (can be any dimension you’d like)
- 1 inch wide leather straps (I used this leather from Amazon)
- S hooks
- leather hole punch (optional)
- 2 nails and a hammer
How to Make a DIY Hanging Wall Organizer
If needed, cut your dowel rod down to the size you need, with a saw. I just used the length as is without cutting for mine though.
1. If using a decorative knot like mine, cut the leather straps into two pieces that are each — in length. OR for a cleaner look, cut the leather straps into two pieces that are each — in length and fold over around the dowel as a simpler option.
2. If you’re knotting the leather, wrap both pieces of leather around the dowel rod and knot tightly – leaving a generous amount of leather at the top for nailing into the wall. If you’re doing a simple flap for the leather, skip this step.
3. Next, you can opt to punch a hole in each piece of leather where your nail will go. OR skip this step and hammer straight through the leather into the wall.
4. Hammer the leather into the wall, while the leather straps are attached to the dowel rod. Add S hooks and it’s ready to use.
You can also add gold hoops (mine are from Amazon) and corded loops to the finished piece if you run out of S hooks or want a little more variety in the lengths of where things hang, etc.

Where are those s hooks from? I’d I’d you bend them at all? I can’t find ones that are bigger on one side for the dowel and smaller on the hook side.Jen
I think I’ll make this out of big bamboo for my friends beach house.TK
