I don’t know about anyone else but my personal jewelry inventory is starting to get pretty serious. More specifically, my necklace collection is what’s getting out of hand. My standard jewelry box is no longer doing the trick. Between my variety of cuffs, watches, and earrings, my necklaces seem to have no place in what should be there home. Also, they get longer and more elaborate by the day and frankly, they need a better spot than a 4×12 jewelry box. I’ve done some research on necklace stands and most of them bore me and seem like they won’t fit my entire collection, so I’ve decided to take matters into my own hands! I found a great DIY project for necklace holders on the Budget Babe and I am going to share it with you. All you need a nice frame of your choice, paint of whatever color your heart desires and hooks to hang your necklaces. Here are the steps to getting your jewelry world even closer to perfect:
Choose a standard frame that’s wide enough to fit five to six hooks. You don’t want the frame to be huge, but big enough to keep up with your growing necklace collection. You can choose a plain square frame or one with more elaborate detailing. That’s up to you.
Once you have your frame, you have to choose a paint color to paint it with. Make sure you paint the frame with one coat and let it dry for a couple of hours before you add the second coat. I might go with grey or maybe yellow. I haven’t decided. If you like the color of the frame you chose, good for you! You can skip this step.
Once the paint dries, screw the hooks into the frame. Make sure to space them out from one another so that your necklaces don’t get knotted together.
Voila! You made your own necklace holder. Hope you enjoyed it!
