How to Make Your Own Hanging Wall Menu

I had an idea to make my own hanging wall menu after seeing a similar version at a local restaurant. I tend to cook things on the “unique” side and therefore continually get asked by my guests what they’re eating.

Making a menu wall helped to alleviate repetition of the menu throughout the night, as well as give a restaurant feel to the dining area.

You can make your own with 4 items in 4 simple steps!

Supplies Needed

  1. Ikea Bygel 39 ¼” Rail – $3.99
  2. Ikea Bygel Hooks – 10 for $4.95
  3. Ikea RÄCKA 28-47″ Silver Curtain Rod – $.99
  4. Brown 30″ Paper Roll

Steps:

1. Hang the rail on the wall. (app. 6 feet from the floor)

4. Place the hooks on to the rail, then hang the curtain rod from the hooks.

After each dinner party, roll that menu down and cut off with scissors, then start fresh for your next party!
