  • Wooden craft circles in various sizes
  • Spray paint in various colors
  • 2” dowels
  • 3” screws
  • Drill
  • Phillips head bit
  • Drill bit to size of screw shaft
  • Drywall anchors
  • Saw
  • E6000
  • Hot glue


  1. Spray paint the desired number of wooden circles to desired colors. Set aside to dry.
  2. Cut the wooden dowels into 1” and 2” length pieces. Cut one for each dot.
  3. Drill a pilot hole all the way through the center of each dowel piece.
  4. Mark where you want each hook on the wall. Then drill a pilot hole and screw in anchor where each hook will be placed.
  5. Now screw each dowel piece into the wall and into the corresponding anchor with the 3” screw.
  6. Adhere a dot to the front of each dowel. Place a dab of hot glue in the center and wood glue around that in a circle, in the center on the backside of the circle. Press onto the front of the dowel, wait until stuck. PRO TIP: Use another dowel to trace the dowel diameter in the center of the backside of the circle as a template for the glue.
  7. Repeat step 6 for each hook.
  8. Allow the glue to set for 24 hours and enjoy!
