I chose to use hockey pucks because it looks cool :) Also, hockey pucks are very strong and sturdy and could handle the weight of a guitar or like instruments.
If you have hockey pucks lying around, use those, or you may purchase some. In my case, I needed 3 for 3 wall mounts. I got mine at a local thrift store for about $1 each.
I cleaned and sanded them down to remove images I didn't want. This step is of course optional.
Take a tool hanger (can be purchased at any local hardware store for about $1.20) and mark where you want the hole to go in your hockey puck.
Once you've centered where you'll be making a hole for the tool hanger, use a power drill and make a deep hole in the puck. Here's what it should look like.
Make sure the tool hanger fits.
Make two more holes above and below the one you made for the tool hanger. These are for the screws you will use to mount the puck to the wall. They're a bit wet bc I rinsed off the crumby residue.
Twist the took hanger in the puck. Keep twisting until you're content with how deep the tool hanger is inside the puck.
Measure where you want to put the wall mount. I like to hang my guitar or ukulele on the mount while I measure to get a better idea of what it will look like in a certain place.
Using your power drill, go ahead and securely mount the guitar hangers on the wall where you marked.
That's it! It's a bit a time consuming but a super easy (and cost efficient 😊) way to mount your guitars or ukuleles on the wall. All 3 wall mounts cost less than $7 to make and they look awesome!
