Winter break has been a great time to catch up on DIY inventions that have been put on hold during the school year. I was in need of hooks in our kitchen for towels, aprons, etc.. so I did some digging in my collection of odd recycled objects and found a spool of old thick gaged wire, and some corks. Simply, drill a hole into the cork about 3/4 of the way through to stick the wire in. Finish the hook by making a swirl to hang from the wall. To make the towel bar drill all the way through the cork (about 5 or 6 corks) and string onto the wire like beads, leaving enough wire at each end to create a swirl to hang. Easy, limited materials and time invested in these kitchen hooks!
