How to: Concrete Lightbulb Wall Hook

With Autumn in full swing, our walls are leaving some of us with an empty spot where our jackets could be neatly hung. These Concrete Lightbulb Wall Hooks have a cool pop art/industrial feel and they are fairly simple to make!

Head over to instructables for a step-by-step guide. Here's what you'll need:


TOOLS:

- Small pair of pliers
- small pair of wirecutters
- small screwdriver
- carbide scribe. You can use something like an awl or even a long skinny nail, but I found my trusty old scribe to be invaluable in this.
- plastic tub to mix the concrete in. I used an empty five pound tub of spreadable margarine.
- a scrap of wood to mix the concrete with. You could use an old wooden spoon or something like that if needed.
- plastic spoon to put the concrete mix into the lightbulb.
- A measuring cup and measuring spoons for adding the correct amount of concrete mix and water.
- a toothbrush you won't be using for your teeth anymore.
- coffee stirrer and plastic cups you "borrowed" from Starbucks
- Gloves and safety glasses. A must because the glass bulb often breaks and little shards go flying in all directions, including straight at your eyes.
- Misc. items like Sharpies, some rags, etc.

MATERIALS:

.- Quikrete Mortar mix
- Lightbulbs
- Water
- Lag Bolt
