Tool Time Tuesday...Brick Hangers

Happy Tool Time!! You'll be off to the hardware store after today's post, but there's no work involved in this project. This week's post is about brick hangers. They grab onto the brick with tension. No drilling at all.

These are great for wreaths, pictures, Christmas stocking, and quilts too! If you change your quilts often (when you're not using the fireplace), these hooks can be moved around easily with the size of your quilt.

You get 2 hooks per package for $5.99. I found these at our local Ace Hardware store.

***Measure your brick before you buy them. They come in 2 sizes. Measure the brick that you are hanging it from, because our fireplace was made from reclaimed brick and each one is a slightly different size.***

The sizes are 2 1/8" - 2 1/4" in one package and the package below which is 2 1/2 - 2 3/4".

The brick clip on the left is the way it faces you once on the fireplace. 2 hooks to hang something on at different levels.

The clip on the right is how it grabs onto the brick.

Here is how it works from the back of the package.

Here it is on one of our bricks.

Have a great Tuesday and as always...have fun in the hardware store, they're often better than craft stores!!
