Introduction: How to Make a Coat Hanger From Tennis Balls

Welcome to this instructable! optionally, you can also cut into the tennis balls to make them a space for keys! This will take around 20 minutes to make, if everything goes to plan.


  1. A wooden plank
  2. A hammer
  3. Scissors
  4. About 4 or 5 nails
  5. About 3 tennis balls
  6. p.s. I recommend using a sharp knife too

Step 1: Hammer Strong Nails Into the Plank

This is the base of your coat hanger. Hammer it deep in to the wood, otherwise they will break!

Step 2: Make a Hole in the Tennis Balls

Make sure the hole is big enough that you can fiddle the nails in!

Step 3: Fiddle So the Hole in the Ball Shoots Into the Nail

If this doesn't work, try cutting a bigger hole with a sharp knife.

Step 4: Decorate Your Coat Hanger!

Add what you feel like to make it nicer! Use colours to enhance your hanger, and if you want write your name on it!
