Fun Animal-Themed Coat Rack

This fun coat rack would be a lovely addition to a childs bedroom or play room.

What you will need:

  • 6.5mm x 406.4mm x 19mm (6.5″ x 16″ x0.75″) wooden plank
  • 4 large S hooks
  • Any hanging hardware/fittings
  • Acrylic paint


  1. Start by sanding down your wooden board for a smooth finish and attach your hanging hardware/hooks to the back.
  2. Paint the entire front and sides of the plank any colour you’d like. We suggest a clean white.
  3. Once dry, draw your animals in pencil on the plank. It should be the backs of the animals and not their fronts. If you’re not confident in your own abilities, print out templates onto transfer paper and lightly trace them so they leave an outline on your plank.
  4. You can now paint your animals any colour you like. Be creative and have fun! Add leaf details for a jungle theme.
  5. Paint each S hook the same colour as one of the animals as it will form their tails.
  6. Drill a small hole for the S hooks to screw into and you’re done!
