HOWTO make a coatrack out of a baby doll

Here's a nice use for an unloved plastic dollie: a coatrack!

1. Dismember your doll

2. Arrange hands and feet on board in an order you like. Space them evenly apart, marking their positions with a pen or pencil. Set limbs aside.

3. Drill 3 holes per limb. I counter sank the holes so the board would lie flat against the wall. Make sure your holes will not come too close to the edge of the limb, because the screw make poke out of the side of a hand or foot.

4. Position keyhole hanger and mark the spot. Chisel out the wood until the hanger fits snugly and until the drywall screws’ heads fit.

  1. I can just see it, a few years from now when Cory’s daughter is at the ‘will not clean up her room, ever, for any reason’ stage: “Clean up your dolls, or I’ll turn them ALL into coatracks, young lady!”

  2. Be careful not to choose a doll of a different colour, or you could be in trouble. I found out the hard way.

  4. I had an acquaintance whose daughter used to rip the heads off her dolls and insert the leg of another, larger doll into the neck hole. Apparently they were on the cusp of being arrested every time they went to the mall. On a related note, she made him a grandfather at 38.

  5. That is seriously creepy. Another thing you could do with the doll’s head is make a lampshade out of it and put on your child’s dresser. That should be good for twenty years of therapy right there.

  6. That coat rack is really creepy. I wouldn’t put it in my home especially my kids room. They’d be having nightmares all night.
