Keep your pup’s walking accessories in order with this nifty leash holder. Feel free to play with other shapes such as a dog bone, dog house or dog silhouette.

You will need:


  • Piece of pine, measuring 400mm x 130mm
  • Timber box - ours is a pencil holder, 120mm x 90mm x 90mm depth
  • Drill, drill bits and screw
  • 2 cup hooks
  • Resene testpot brush
  • Resene testpot in Resene Soft Apple
  • Resene FX Blackboard Paint
  • Artist’s brush
  • Chalk
  • Pencil
  • Dog bone template (optional)

Step one: Paint the pine and box in Resene Soft Apple. Let dry

Step two: Use an artist’s brush to paint the shape for the name. Ours is in Resene FX Blackboard Paint in a dog bone shape.

Step three: Once dry, write the name chalk.

Step four: Screw the coat hooks to the bottom of the board.

Step five: Screw the box to the pine piece, so it sits in the middle.

Step six: Hang with strong picture hooks or screw to the wall.
