The Pin Junkie: Hang Items on Brick Without Drilling

Hang Items on Brick Without Drilling

My brick fireplace was looking very bare and pathetic after all the decorations from the holidays were taken down and put away.


My mantle is difficult to decorate because the ledge is very narrow and slightly curved.  I don't want to drill into the brick so I'm limited to finding things that will fit on this narrow curved ledge.

I found out about this little gizmo on Pinterest. It's a brick hook and you can find it in the hardware section of just about any home improvement store.

It fits right in between the bricks and lets you hang things without having to drill into the brick.  Amazing!

I saw these beautiful floral wreaths at Target during the holidays but didn't want to pay $40.00 for them.   I know, I'm cheap, but I hate paying full price for something at Target when I know it will be on sale later.  Sure enough, right after Christmas the topiaries were half off.  Target.com sweetened the deal with a $10.00 gift card with any online order of $50.00 or more.  So I got my wreath, had an excellent excuse to buy a cute new pair of shoes to bring the total up to $50.00, and got a gift card!

Now I can hang my new wreath (which I love) and my mantle looks so much prettier!

  9. Your mantel is so beautiful! I love your wreath and it looks like the wood shaving roses. If it is, I have a small red one.
    Love the look with your little birds.

    1. Yes, they are the wood shaving roses. I bought a red one too and will probably hang it at Christmas.

  14. I am visiting from Debbie Doos! I have a stone fireplace with a narrow ledge. It drives me batty because I can't display or layer a lot of objects. This is a great idea and the wreath is beautiful!

  22. Hi, I 'd like to know where I can find the brick hook. I am in Montreal, and I could not find a website for it, or a place that sells it in the city? Can you tell me what he cost is ? Thanks...

    1. I purchased mine at Lowe's in the hardware department. I'm thinking most hardware or home improvement stores would have it in stock.
