Belt Rack for Dad

Belts are the coin of the realm for Father's Day, but they don't have to fly right off the store rack straight into the gift box; add your own personality to the package. Why not give Dad his new belt on a handmade, handsome rack.




  • Wooden hanger
  • Wire cutters
  • Cup hooks
  • Drill and drill bits


  1. Step 1

    To attach cup hooks to a good wooden hanger, first drill holes with an appropriate-sized bit. (If you try to screw hooks in with your hands without first making holes, the rod might split.)

  2. Step 2

    Space holes evenly, about 2 inches apart; if the screws of hooks are too long, snip off ends with wire cutters before screwing them in.

    this certainly is exclusive. And it's got the special touch =)
    I was thinking of making a photobook for dad. Recently saw the idea at Anyone who has made 1 before?

    I like the linen tie, too. I found a cool website: that gives a little twist to the classic tie. Check it out for details. I got a bunch for my wedding party.
