Patriotic Coat Hook--It's a Gas

Every day for the past few weeks as I carefully pull my car into its precious, junk surrounded garage space, I have noticed 3 scraps of wood on my scrap cart, a red, white, and blue one.  I decided they needed to come together to make a patriotic project--a coat hook. I joined the pieces together with a scrap of wood on the back and then searched for the right junky hooks.  When I saw two old gas can nozzles in my junk drawer I decided they'd be perfect "hooks" or coat hangers.

I am quite happy with the results.

PS--Hubby just informed these are really oil can nozzles, but the title wouldn't work, so I am sticking with gas cans :)!
