Can we just take a second to admire copper refrigerator pipe? I mean, it’s probably my new favorite craft supply because I can use it for so many things. It’s so pretty and shiny and easy to bend (unlike plumbing pipe).
Today’s DIY is part of my 5-minute DIY series because, yes, it’s that easy! With some copper refrigerator pipe, you can make this cute but very simple copper pipe towel hanger for a kitchen or bathroom. To make sure the hanger moves properly when you’re using or moving the towel, I recommend using a hook instead of a nail to hang it on your wall. A nail is less stable, and the hook gives it a chance to move more freely without falling.
- Copper refrigerator pipe
- Pipe cutter
- Tape measure
This project is really simple! Cut a piece of refrigerator pipe approximately 32 inches long. Measure about 8 inches from the end and bend a 45 degree angle. Measure another 8 inches down the pipe and bend at a 90 degree angle (this will be the top). Another 8 inches down, bend another 45 degree angle, so you should have two layers on the bottom of the hanger. This lends some stability.
To hang the towel rack on your wall, choose your spot and carefully screw in a small hook. You shouldn’t need a drill to do this. Then place the top bend of the pipe inside the hook, which allows it to move freely if needed. Hang your towel on the bottom portion and you’re all set.
Easy peeasy, right? Just what I need on a Monday…Happy crafting!
