I'm an organized person by nature,
but at times even the best organizers don't always stay organized.
That brings me to this
a hanging jewelry organizer.
I've had mine for years and while it certainly is great for smaller items,
necklaces always seem to get tangled and aren't easily visible.
Mine was a mess!
Mine was a mess!
I wanted a solution to make them more visible, untangled and easily accessible.
Cue Pinterest and all the wonderful ideas that abound.
I took a few different ideas that I saw and made my own hanging necklace board from things I already had around the house...so this project cost me a grand total of free!
Here's a step by step guide to my project.
(any size - the larger the more room you'll have to hang necklaces - mine is approx 18" sq)
Piece of foam core or cork
(we had an old plastic business yard sign that I used)
Fabric - enough to cover your board and wrap around the edges
I started by cutting the foam core sign to fit inside in the frame.
Then using spray glue I adhered my fabric to the board.
Make sure you do this step in a well ventilated area or outside,
as this stuff smells very strong and it's super tacky and tends to overspray everywhere.
Fold over the corners neatly, just like you would wrap a gift.
Meanwhile I painted my cup hooks to match my fabric,
but you could skip this step altogether depending on the look you are going for.
Once they were dry I screwed them into the foam board,
and inserted it into the frame.
And here is the finished project!
Plenty of untangled hanging space for short and medium length necklaces.
I like how easily it is to see everything.
I actually found a necklace that I had totally forgot about since it was tucked away in a pouch!
While I have a few longer necklaces that were too long for the board,
I simply put an extra cup hook in the wall next to this to make room for those.
Overall I'm very happy and it didn't cost me anything and only took about an hour to complete.
