DIY Baby Coat Rack

I’ve always thought that these little wooden animals at Hobby Lobby were adorable, and for only 67 cents each, I was wondering what I could do with them.  I decided to make a coat rack for James’ nursery.

I bought the wooden, unfinished coat rack at Hobby Lobby for just a couple dollars and simply spray painted it white.

Then I used a glue gun to glue the little animals to the rack.  We affixed the rack to the wall using velcro adhesive stickers. Voila!
