DIY Branch Hat and Coat Stand

Updated on November 24, 2012

How to make a hat and coat stand using a tree branch

When we moved in to our new house, our garden was totally overgrown. When we were done chopping down some trees and bush we were left with a huge pile of garden refuse. I made this hat stand using some branches that we chopped down in our garden.

You will need:

- 1 x branch (mine is just over 1.6m high)

- Paint

- Paint brush

- Cement

- Large tin

- Small pebbles/stones

1.Empty and clean your large tin. I used a Milo tin but next I would like to try using a cool vintage looking tin.

2.Mix your cement (follow the on pack instructions) and pour into your large tin.

3.Place your unpainted branch into the tin and allow adequate time to set. I tied my branch to a gate whilst it was setting to prop it up.

4.Once it has set you can paint your branch.

5.Cover the surface of the cement in the tin with some small stones or pebbles.

And there you have it an easy to make eco-friendly hat rack!

Much Love,

The Hippie Housewife

      I like this DIY project. I would not have thought of it on my own, but I think it is very creative, decorative, and most of all it is functional.
