There are so many amazing uses for Command Hooks! Here are just a few of my favorites to get you started!
I love using command hooks around my home and I recently realized that I don’t know if I’ve ever actually mentioned them on the blog! What an oversight for someone who likes to share tips to make life easier around the house! Command hooks are so easy to use, it almost feels like I’m cheating when I should probably come up with my own DIY solution, but they’re just so darn handy that I keep coming back to them again and again.
I feel like I see a new way to use command hooks almost every week that makes me say “Yes! That’s SO smart!” These little hooks were such a great invention and I love finding new ways that they can make my life easier around the house. I’ve put together a little collection of some of my favourites uses for command hooks today. Hopefully you’ll find a few in here that will make you say “That’s so smart!” too! 🙂
Great Uses for Command Hooks
Here are a few ideas to get you started. Once you start using with them, you’ll come up with many more of your own uses around the house!
Use Them as Hooks!
OK, this one’s a little obvious, but you can use command hooks for all kinds of hook-able things like jackets, hats, and bags! I have a really nice metal one that I’ve used for my purse for years! They make a lot of different really decorative command hooks that look just like a permanent metal hook! I also really like this more modern design they have as well.
Use Them to Hang Wreaths on Windows or Doors.
It’s always a little tough to figure out the best way to hang a wreath and with these hooks, there’s no need to worry at all. You can put them just about anywhere. I use these clear mini hooks for wreaths on my windows and I actually usually end up leaving them up even after I take down the wreaths for a particular holiday because they’re so small and transparent that they’re hardly noticeable!
Use Them to Keep Cords in Place.
The mini hooks are absolutely perfect for keeping a cord from a lamp or some other plug-in-able thing neat and tidy. Just line up the hooks and alternate which direction they’re facing, then clip the cord in place. You can use this trick run cords along the back of furniture to hide them completely or to just keep them neat and tidy against a wall. And the best part? Of course there’s no damage to walls or furniture!
Use Them to Hang a Headboard.
Use Them to Create a Hanging Kitchen Herb Garden.

They Even Have Water Resistant Hooks!
If your shower is a little lacking in storage space, command hooks can help! You can use a water resistant command hook to hang up a loofah or a bath poof, use two hooks to create a little holder for a razor, or even hang a whole shower caddy from them! I also love the idea of attaching a binder clip to squeeze bottle with a flat top and hanging it from a hook that way. So many options!
Use Them in Kitchen Cupboards.
Kitchen are full of all kinds of odds and ends that are totally command hook-able and the insides of your cupboard doors are blank canvasses just waiting to help you live a more organized life! Things like lids for pots and pans, measuring spoons, cookie cutters, and mixer attachments can all easily be organized with hooks inside cupboard doors!
Use Them for Curtain Rods!
I love this clever damage-free curtain rod trick from Up to Date Interiors!
Use Them to Organize Ribbon or Washi Tape.
If you have a large stash of craft supplies and want a quick and easy way to organize them, anything on a spool can easily be hung up on a wall using command hooks and a thin piece of doweling!…. or in a pinch, you can use a skewer from the kitchen like I did! 🙂

Do you have any other favourite uses for Command Hooks that I missed?
ed. note: this post first appeared last winter and the ideas in to comments are incredible. Scroll down to check them out, join the discussion or add your own. Here are few highlights:
- “test “WALLPOPS” wallpaper to easily remove and change my mind” – Zima
- “I use them to hold the toilet brush on the side of the toilet.” – Donna Marie
- “I attached one to the side of my washer for hangers” – Sharon
I had to add another of my own as well! I discovered that a command hook is a great way to keep a corn stalk bundle standing up straight next to your door in the fall! Just attach the commend hook to the outside wall of your house, just behind where you would like the corn bundle to stand, about halfway up the bundle. Tie a piece of twine around the corn bundle, then loop it over the hook! So much better than trying to run out and stand your corn stalks up again every time the wind blows them over.
