Make useful DIY kitchen hooks

Mugs are special, right? We all have our favourite. And we don't always know why, but our morning coffee definitely tastes better when we drink from it!

Here at Sugru, we believe all mugs deserve to feel special. Whether you're grabbing a breakfast tea or you're taking a quick break during work, it's always handy to keep your mugs within reach.

Watch this video for a quirky way to give them pride of place in the kitchen.


Sugru is ieal for this project because it bonds well with metals, ceramics and wood. You can even colour-match your hook to your kitchen!


For each hook, you'll need one single-use pack of Sugru. Need to stock up on Sugru? Head over to the Sugru shop.

Step 1 – Roll your Sugru into a ball and press onto the wall. Push the Sugru firmly into the wall to create a strong bond.

Step 2 – Work your Sugru into a point and gently curve the tip to form your hook.

Step 3 – Once you're happy with the shape of your hook, leave to set.

In 24 hours, you'll be one step closer to the perfect, organised kitchen!

Make your bathroom beautiful without drilling

Ah, peace and quiet! Is there anything more satisfying than the sound of the bathroom door locking – click! – the world on the outside, you on the inside, with bubbles, candles, and the sound of Enrique Iglesias' voice soothing you into relaxation... (OK, maybe not that last one).

The bathroom is your space. It's your hideaway, your chance to get a little me time, and you deserve it to be beautiful.

Avoid the stress of difficult DIY and the fear of cracked ceramic tiles. Watch this video for an easy, affordable way to transform your bathroom into a heavenly retreat without the need for drilling!


Sugru is ideal for this project because it bonds well with metals, ceramics and wood. We've used a metal handrail with marble and slate coasters (and even a wooden cheeseboard!) but you can use anything to personalise your bathroom just the way you want it.

To make a shelf using two handrail brackets (or two shelves using a handrail bracket each), you'll need two single-use packs of Sugru. Need to stock up? Head over to the Sugru shop!

For a detailed step-by-step guide to achieving a beautiful finish, follow our guide, How to make bathroom shelves without drilling.

Whether you use your shelves for setting the mood with candles and plants, or for the practicality of keeping essential bathroom stuff handy, this project is great for creating your own bathroom haven.

And best of all, Sugru is removable! Ideal if you're living in rented accommodation or want to keep your tiles like new.

Get your shoes under control!


Shoes are awkward. You can't fold them, stack them or hang them up. It's like they have a mind of their own and somehow always seem to end up in a disorganised shoe mountain!

Here's a quirky but practical idea to keep some of yours out of sight, but always within easy reach.


Storage opportunities are hiding everywhere, even in your wardrobe! This idea makes use of the dead space on the inside of your wardrobe doors, and all you need to get started are a few tennis balls and a pack of Sugru... game on!

Copy this genius little idea and you'll have your shoes under control in no time.

Turns out tennis balls make great shoe hooks — they're soft, round and kind on your shoes, plus you can get them easily.

Unlike other glues, Sugru is three-dimensional and fills weird gaps, so you can stick odd shapes together. And because Sugru is removable you can take them away again in years to come, if you ever need to, ideal if you're living in rented accommodation.

One single use pack of Sugru is enough to attach two tennis balls and store a pair of shoes. Need to stock up on Sugru? Head over to the Sugru shop.

Step 1 – Smudge one pea-sized piece onto the tennis ball and the other pea-sized piece onto the wardrobe door where you want to attach the ball.

Step 2 – Roll one of the large pieces into a sausage, press onto the smudged part of ball and shape into a pyramid.

Step 3 – Press the tennis ball onto the smudged Sugru on the wardrobe door and press down firmly.

Top tip: Use tape to secure the tennis balls overnight while the Sugru cures.

In 24 hours they will be ready to go, and can say goodbye to that shoe mountain!

Could this be the best place to store your toothbrush?

Could this be the best place to store your toothbrush? It certainly puts a smile on our face. Why can't all practical solutions be this cute?!

Most of us just use an old glass or cup to store our toothbrushes, it's the obvious solution, right? Hmmm... we didn't really want to bring this up, but have you looked inside the bottom of yours recently? (We wouldn't advise it!) This project lets you lose the grubby glass, free up some space and replace it with a row of smiley faces for everyone's toothbrushes.


Because Sugru sticks to most materials, including metals, ceramic and glass, you can attach these almost anywhere — on the inside of the bathroom cabinet or maybe right onto the mirror itself... that bits up to you! And because Sugru is removable, you can always take these off again if you ever need to.

Once you've decided where you want to mount yours, you just need to build a simple Sugru hook on it's side following the steps below.

Need to stock up on Sugru? Head over to the Sugru shop.

Step 1 — Roll a single-use pack of Sugru into a ball. (Pinch a little piece off and keep it aside - you'll need this for the eyes later)

Step 2 — Press the Sugru onto the surface and pinch it into a sausage shape, then carefully bend it sideways to form a hook.

Step 3 — Divide the little piece of Sugru you saved earlier into two dots, and stick them an inch above your hook. These will help keep your toothbrush in place.

24 hours later the Sugru will have cured into lovely grippy rubber hooks. Smiles all around!


Now you'll be motivated to free yourself from the rest of the clutter. Check out these 16 pretty genius solutions for messy sinks that we've gathered from other Sugru-ers, or keep reading for more inspiration.
