Neat Necklace Hangers

Neatnecklaces

I can’t be the only one with this issue: great necklaces get all tangled and before you can undo the damage, you’ve already given up on wearing one.

As a victim of the forever stuck together curse, I had to come up with a solution. Jewelry boxes? Too messy! Bowls? Too boring! And leaving them out in the open on your dresser? Too risky! After all, you don’t want your favourite piece falling into the abyss under your bed, never to be found again. So stick with something that’s both decorative and organized, like these necklace hangers. Perched up on the wall, your precious jewels are turned to art –in an instant!

To make them, here’s what you’ll need:

1 coat hanger

1 knob (Anthropologie has a great selection to suit all tastes)

A drill

Pencil

An old newspaper

Safety glasses

hangers

Once your materials are all set, mark the wall with a pencil where you want your knob to be and make sure that you’ve selected a spot where there are no pipes or electrical wires!Lay out sheets of old newspaper on the floor underneath this mark because things are about to get a little messy (or just plain dusty). Then take your drill (with safety glasses stylishly on) and make a hole that is as deep as your chosen knob requires. Things only get more simple from here: insert the knob, place your necklaces on the hanger, and then hang it up!

There you have it! They look great and are functional beside a dresser,  or can add height in pairs above your bed.

Style is served!
