Command hooks are an organizer's dream come true. These tiny hooks can be mounted on walls using easy to find tools, or in some cases, little glue tags that come with the hooks upon purchase.

Home organization aficionados know that there are many easy DIY art projects that use these little tools for display purposes — and that there are also plenty of ways to make your home easier to sort through using them, too.

If you aren't sure how to use them in your home, check out these ingenious DIY hacks using Command hooks to make your home a prettier, more organized place.

Use them to hang up pots, pans, and cooking utensils.

One of the most popular DIY hacks using Command hooks involves making them a de facto way to hang up your favorite cooking gear. Your kitchen walls offer a lot of space, and as the folks at Shabby Creek Cottage showed us, that space can be way more useful with the right hooks.

Since Command hooks can be tacked onto tile without damaging anything, they tend to be a renter's best friend. Overall, it's a great way to make sure you get the most of your tight kitchen space.

Make a quick and easy rack.

Perhaps one of the most obvious DIY hacks using Command hooks would have to be making clothing racks with them. After all, clothing hooks are always a smart thing to have in your home — and Command hooks allow you to make any wall or cabinet into a clothing rack.

Obviously, if you're going to hang heavy things off your walls, you will need stronger hooks — or even choose hooks of the non-adhesive form. Regular adhesive Command hooks are great for hanging up hats, oven gloves, aprons, towels, and light windbreakers, too.

Use Command hooks to hang up artwork.

You can make a really easy Instagram-style photo garland by hanging up two (or more) Command hooks, then tying twine between them, leaving a little space for a "dip." Then, use wooden clothes pins to hang up your favorite Instagram photo prints, artwork, and more.

Another good way to get your wall art on is to use adhesive binder clips aligned in a row to get the same effect. However, this is a list of DIY hacks using Command hooks, so it's off topic...but it still looks so good, we decided to include the tip, anyway.

This is an amazing hack that will give your home a serious upgrade for under $100, especially if you're a huge fan of artwork and photography. If you want to see this simple project in action, check out this gorgeous kitchen art display.

Get more room by applying Command hooks to the inside of cabinet and closet doors.

You'd be surprised at how many things you can hang up there — and how much more space you'll find as a result. Finding a place for spatulas, measuring cups, and even small sewing kits just got a bit easier.

Attach Command hooks on furniture to help hide extension cords.

Extension cords are messy, hard to deal with, and can ruin the appearance of a room. Command hooks can help keep them under control and even guide them all into a main hub if you know how to handle them. For us tech geeks with a clean side, this is one of those DIY hacks using Command hooks that everyone should try.

You can get a pretty cool tutorial on how to use Command hooks to tidy up home wiring online. Keeping your house organized just became a lot easier, didn't it, techies?

Make a new home for your headphones.

A common misconception is that having a DIY hack means that you'll end up with one of the best DIY projects ever witnessed on Reddit. It's just not true. Sometimes, it's about making life a little bit easier for you on your day-to-day routine.

Such is the case with this lifehack, which happens to be ideal for audiophiles. Place a Command hook on the back of your desktop monitor to make a brand new home for your headphones. Now, grabbing headphones will be a lot easier, and also a lot more convenient.

Use them to hang wreaths.

Wreaths are a thing, and they are definitely one of the most popular DIY home decor projects for fall. If you just made a beautiful fall wreath, then you might as well use one of the more classic DIY hacks using Command hooks — and hang your wreath on a Command hook.

Believe it or not, the hooks are typically durable enough to withstand a season. So, why not use them to show off your seasonal outdoor home decor?
