How to hang baseball hats on the wall

I’ve been looking for a good way of displaying baseball hats on the wall. I’ve tried to put nails along near where the wall meets the ceiling, but I didn’t like how it looked. Mainly, I didn’t like how you couldn’t really see the front of the hat. I’ve thought about putting in a special shelving system in the computer room for the sole purpose of displaying my hats. Luckily for me I didn’t get around to doing that as I stumbled upon a great video that shows am ingenious way of displaying hats on a wall. Best of all, it’s extremely cheap and easy to do.

Here’s the video:

The guy in the video might be in dire need of a haircut, but the man obviously knows what he’s doing when it comes to the display of hats. I have a bunch of these clips and plan on making my own wall display very soon.

Chandelier made from paperclips and cardboard drink carriers

egg-carton-chandelierCheck out this neat looking chandelier made with metal spring paperclips and those disposable pulpy cardboard things they give you at fast food joints to carry up to four cups at once.  I found it over at the Apartment Therapy Re-Nest blog.   They said it’s made with egg cartons, but to me it looks like the carriers they give out at Dunkin’ Donuts when you purchase more than one coffee.

I want to make one of these.  Maybe I’ll go out to Dunkin’ Donuts and purchase 24 cups of coffee to go.  I am kind of thirty right now.

I’m wondering how it’s illuminated.  Does it have one low-wattage bulb or is it using a string of tiny Christmas lights with the bulbs positioned at the openings?  I’m guessing it’s using Christmas lights.

Concrete light bulb wall hook

Do you have some extra light bulbs and some Quikrete Mortar mix sitting around the house? If so, you might want to think about making one of these.  It’s a concrete light bulb wall hook.  Drive it into a wall stud and you will have a sturdy hook to hang a heavy coat from.  Plus, it will look extremely cool.

The creator posted step-by-step, easy to follow instructions over on Instructables.  He also posted a link to his website where you can purchase concrete light bulbs already made.  The price is $19 plus $6 shipping.


Cool homemade air conditioner

I think I first saw this over on Make. It’s a homemade air conditioner. The bucket is filled with ice water and the small electric fan moves air through an aluminum channel running through the bucket, sealed with silicone.

Make sure to check out Franco’s blog Assorted Tips for more photos along with step by step instructions so you can make your own.

I don’t like being hot. In fact, I hate it. Sunday night when the temperature outside was 95 degrees with a humidity level to match, I could have used one of these homemade air conditioners. Our central air just wasn’t getting it done.

I want to make one of these and have it ready to go if needed.
