You can find these supplies at your local craft store, but if you have trouble finding the screw hooks, try a hardware store like Lowes or Home Depot.
On the pencil marks, use your hammer and small nail to create a shallow hole. This will create a small groove just big enough to begin twisting your screw hooks inside. Be sure to use something sturdy to secure your dowel while hammering. I used my knee to hold down the dowel while GENTLY hitting the hammer to the nail. Do not bang the hammer too hard or you will sever the dowel. Carefully twist your hooks into place. The deeper your hook twists into the groove, the more difficult it will be to turn. TIP: Use the claw on the backside of your hammer head to twist the screws in the place.
Finally, apply hot glue to the ends of your dowels (see image below) and carefully wrap your rope around the dowel being sure to pay attention to the direction of your hooks. Once your rope has been secured, add moss on top of the rope and at the ends of the dowel so that your hanger is completely covered.
Allow your hanger to dry for about fifteen minutes and you’re all done!
