DIY: Necklace Holder

I found this genius idea to get my necklaces organized from
and I thought I'd give it a go.
1.  You will need a flat board to attach your knobs unto.  You can be creative with this.  For my board I'm using a piece of driftwood that I found at this beach on this trip.
I got 4 out of my 5 knobs from our local habitat for humanity store for less than $1.00.
2.  Measure and drill the holes for your knobs.
3.  Attach your knobs to the board using the already drilled holes.
4.  Attach the finished project to the wall and hang your necklaces!
and now my necklaces are officially organized!

See how I organized my earrings here.

  1. WonderfuL! I've seen this idea on Pinterest too. I have a lot of necklaces, so I've been putting off doing something cute with them like this. I think I'd need about 12 knobs to keep them all from getting tangled together. Happy new year to you!

  10. I absolutely L O V E this!!! Now, to find the knobs, I think I'll look at a couple local antique shops. As for the wood, I'll just buy a piece from a home improvement store & distress it a bit. I call this ART!

    1. You can use saw-tooth hangers for the back or even use a string of some sort attached to each end and hang it on a nail or hook. I found my knobs at the local Habitat for Humanity store. You could probably find some good ones at flea markets also!

  21. I'm all ready to make a couple of these as Christmas gifts, but as I'm looking at the knobs I got, I realize that they will stick out on the back so it won't hang flush to the wall. Did you have that problem? I can saw wood (poorly), but this is metal! Thanks!

    1. Hi Keallie,

      I used the knobs with the screw head on the back so it was flush with the wood. The knobs screwed in from the back to the front (into the knob) so I didn't have to cut off the extra metal. Hope that helps!

    1. Driftwood is your best bet, I'm guessing, since any old wood could be infested with termites...just a thought!

  29. Nice idea to arrange necklaces. When you don't use them you can just hang them on the holder. It's practical and does even look nice.

    1. I was on the hunt for knobs for a while too. They have a similar glass one at Home Depot. Perhaps you can find some ordinary ones and spray paint them fun colors! :)

    2. If you have a Hobby Lobby near you, they had a ton of beautiful ones. If you catch them on a 50% off week, even better!!!

  33. This is a similar idea I used to make mirror "shutters" to hang over my bed, i just glued the knobs onto the mirror frame with krazy glue, eliminated the need for drilling (the mirrors give the effect of having a window in the room, I draped with curtains, put them high enough to reflect the ceiling light, a dramatic effect and makes the room look bigger).
