How to Build Your Own Guitar Hanger

If you're love to rock out on your guitar and show off your six string even when you're not strumming it, why not proudly display your guitar on the wall in all of her beauty? While you can buy a guitar hanger from your local music store, it'll lack in the TLC (and absolute frugality) that a homemade guitar hanger can bring. So why not make your own? With just a few simple pieces of equipment and know-how, you make your own guitar hanger cheap and easy.

Skill level:

Things you need

  • Hallow wall anchors
  • Super hook tool hanger (shaped like a "U" with a screw on its end)
  • Wooden scrap closet rod with flat side
  • Two screws
  • Nail
  • Drill
  • Hammer
  • Pencil

    Constructing the Guitar Hanger

  1. 1

    Cut your piece of scrap closet rod so that it is 4 inches long. Drill three holes in a row down the length of the scrap rod. The two end holes are for your screws, the middle hole for your Super hook. Make sure the holes aren't too big for your screws and hook.

  2. 2

    Line your scrap rod along the wall vertically, and mark the place on your wall where you'll be hanging your guitar hanger with your pencil. Make a line at the top of the hanger so that you don't lose your place, and also mark where the three holes on your scrap rod will be with your pencil.

  3. 3

    Hammer a small starter hole in each of the three marks. Put your scrap rod back against the wall, and drill your two screws in the top and bottom of your scrap rod, starting with the top hole.

  4. 4

    Twist the super hook into the middle hole of the scrap rod. Make sure the threads of the screw catch the wood. Once the super hook is screwed in, apply pressure to it to make sure it is stable.

  5. 5

    Hang up your guitar, and enjoy the fruits of your labour!
