Ahem. Nearly all my jewelry was either on this bottle, in this box, or hanging from this frame. (Which is also another handy DIY - take apart a picture frame and put in back together with fabric and a chunk of chicken wire. Sans glass, of course.)
While the frame is fantastic for earrings, it wasn't working well for the necklaces.
I decided to make a different hanger, and this was all I needed:
- A chunk of wood
- Small hooks
- Picture hangers
- A hammer
- Tape measure
This is my wood. (Sorry.)
I put 2 picture hangers on the back. (The first time around, I used 1 picture hanger, and that was no bueno. Use 2 hangers, 1 on each end, for stability.)
Then I measured the length of the board, and figured out even spacing for each hook. Mine were about 2 inches apart, all the way across.
I used a hammer to gently tap each hook into the wood a little, then just twisted it in the rest of the way. Notice I said 'tap' each hook - this is not the time to be Thor. If you're using a hardwood, you may want to drill holes first before putting in each hook.
The total cost for this was less than $5.00, which makes me a happy camper.
See you in a few days!
