How’s yours hangin'? DIY necklace hangers
After numerous failed attempts to keep my large pendants neat and untangled in jewelry boxes, I knew I needed to do something different. I saw many blogger DIY projects utilizing hooks inside picture frames. They looked cute in the same way Ikea store displays do, organized and neat if you only have a few items to store. But since I exceed at excess, I needed another solution that would solve my storage problem. I decided to utilize the existing picture molding over my vanity dresser, but needed necklace hangers to do so. I had bought heavy duty hangers to hang a shadow box display shelf on the opposite wall, but they were too large and too expensive if I wanted to buy a lot of them. So I made my own necklace hangers with jumbo paper clips, and now I can see all my necklaces and they stay untangled and ready to rock! All you need are jumbo paper clips and two needle nose pliers. Bend the paperclip open and flat, then straighten the larger end straight out, then use both pliers to create a 90 degree hook that will catch on the picture molding. Hang 'em high and admire your easy and practical DIY project!!
