how’s it hangin’?

Here’s a fun, quick project to make organizing your necklaces a snap. It was free for me {I love free!}

One day I on a whim I decided I needed a better way to hang jewelry. The hooks in my closet were nice but everything got so tangled up:

I decided to make a jewelry hanger and I went looking for a picture frame at a couple thrift stores. I was going to stretch some canvas in it after painting the frame a fun color. I couldn’t find one that wasn’t over $20 and I am cheap.

Sooo I decided to see what I had around the house to use. I had this wall hanging we’d received for our wedding. It was forest green and had the words “Life is Wonderful” in vinyl letters on it. It just wasn’t our my style. 😛 It ended up gathering dust in a closet. {I am sentimental – ha}. Basically it was a free routered {word?}piece of wood with hanging hardware already attached – score! So, I slapped on a couple coats of white paint and modge-podged some scrapbook paper scraps and stickers. Then I hammered in some nails in a row, so it looked like so:

Might not look like much, but it’s perfect for hanging my necklaces so they don’t get all tangled up. See her in action? This is hanging behind the door in our closet:

I just love it and it cost me nothing because I used up things I already had around the house. And there’s room to pound in more nails along the bottom, but for now this is plenty.

I left to hooks up for bracelets and some of the necklaces that don’t tangle easily {like the shell leis I brought back from Hawaii}. Super fun, for about 30 minutes of my time {plus lots of drying time between coats- it’s the perfect project while working on homework!} Shyeah! ♥
