I love necklaces. I could live without earrings, I usually forget to wear the rings I own, and I have yet to find a bracelet that sits nicely on my small wrists, but an outfit seems incomplete without a necklace.
And I own many of them.
For the longest time they were folded, rolled, and stacked several necklaces deep in one of four little jewellery boxes that I own. It kept them out of sight, but often made it impossible to grab the right one in a hurry. What I really needed was a hanging necklace organizer.
And so I made myself one. Gathering inspiration from here, here and here, I headed to the thrift store and found a framed print that would work perfectly.
I removed the glass and since the print was glued to sturdy cardboard, decided to reuse it as the backing for the organizer.
I covered the entire thing in Mod Podge and stuck down the fabric.
I then folded in the corners, using a little of the Mod Podge to make them stick, and then folded down the sides over the back, to keep the fabric in place.
After putting it back into the frame, I was ready to add hangers.
To create the hangers, I hot-glued small plain buttons to the surface, and then covered them with larger, prettier, buttons from my stash. (Due to the shallowness of the frame, I couldn’t use nails or push pins without having them poke too far through, but I think the buttons were a fun solution!)
Then I hung it on the wall and filled it with necklaces! Isn’t it pretty?
