Even if you have hooks or a hall tree by your front door, winter accessories tend to pile up quickly. All of the coats, hats, scarves, earwarmers and other cold-weather detritus can rapidly take over unless you make better arrangements. Those better arrangements are right here in the form of these clever paint can coat hooks from Instructables user Brian Jewett.

The project is simple enough for almost anyone to pull off. It involves mounting a clean paint can (or two or ten, however many you need) to the wall with screws. No fancy tools or special knowledge are needed.

The insides of the cans hold all of your smallish accessories like gloves and mittens. The metal handle of the can is a great place for hanging scarves or wet socks. Coats are hung over the body of the can. Et voila, everyone in the household has their own special place for all of their outdoor gear – and it’s way cheaper than installing an entire cloakroom.
