The Dollar Tree Towel Storage DIY Your Cluttered Bathroom Needs

We may receive a commission on purchases made from links.

Many homeowners hang their bath towels on towel racks in their bathroom after use. If you have a large family, these racks can easily become overcrowded, which may leave you with limited space to store all of your family members' bath towels properly. Even if you live alone or have a smaller family, tiny bathrooms can present this challenge as well. You can solve this problem with a simple Dollar Tree DIY. All you need is the Antique Brass Finish Metal Wall Hooks and a wood plaque of your choice. Simply screw the hook onto the plaque, and hang it on your bathroom wall to store your bath towels.

You can leave the DIY as-is to keep things simple, or you can customize it by staining or painting the wood. If you do not like the finish of the wall hooks, you can change those as well using metallic spray paint. Consider purchasing several sets of hooks and plaques if you need to hang lots of towels, which will likely still leave you within your budget given that the main components of this DIY are only $1.25 each.

Crafting this DIY towel hook is simple

This bathroom towel storage idea can be quickly assembled in just a few steps. TikTok user @dollartree.hacks shared a video of how to craft this project, so if you decide to try this DIY out for yourself, you may want to follow along. The wood plaque the content creator used is not available on the Dollar Tree website at the time of this writing, but you may be able to find it at your local store.

You might also want to consider using the Crafter's Square Wood Plank Hanging Decor as an alternative. If you plan to hang multiple towels, you can screw your hooks onto this plank side-by-side and hang it on a bathroom wall horizontally. One of the most fascinating tips from the video is the recommendation to use coffee as a wood stain, which is a great way to save money. However, feel free to skip this step if you already have wood stain or paint you would prefer to use on hand. After customizing the wood to your liking and screwing the hooks in place, you are ready to hang this money-saving DIY in your bathroom.

Where to purchase additional materials for this DIY

You do not have to worry about buying hardware to secure the hooks in place, as those materials are already included in the packaging. However, you might need to pick up other crafting supplies if you would like to customize this DIY. Consider getting creative by painting the wood plank or plaque a fun color. You could also paint a pattern onto the wood or use a stencil to create a design. Dollar Tree sells a variety of acrylic paints for those who prefer to keep things affordable.

If you want to go for a more neutral look, feel free to head over to Home Depot or your local home improvement store to snag your preferred wood stain. You could also simply use coffee to stain the wood as shown in the video. Finally, you can use Rust-Oleum metallic spray paint to change the finish of the metal hooks. Amazon sells this paint in brass, copper, gold, and silver.
