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. 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. 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.
