After I made the earring holder for $3 this summer, I started thinking about a better way to store my necklaces. I don't really have that many, but I often forget what necklaces I have until I see it later on one of my teen daughters (and I think, "Doh. that would look great with what I'm wearing today!" but it's too late. Unless I want to be a meanie head and wrestle away from my daughter. Which I'd never do.)
And Command hooks.
With the Command hooks, I could hang my necklace board anywhere and be able to remove it easily when we move.
I used a piece of decorative paper that I already had and cut it to size. I used to double stick tape to attach the paper to the cork tile.
I used some eye hooks and some push pins that we had. I didn't have enough of either one, there were enough if I used both. You'll see the eye hooks on the top row and the push pins on the bottom row. They both work equally well in holding the necklaces.
I hung the board on a wall in my closet using the 3 Command Hooks. I used 2 hooks on the bottom to help support the weight and 1 hook on the top to just stabilize the top of the board.
Having the necklaces where I can see them in my closet has worked really well. I can easily pick a necklace to match my outfit. And because they're right in plain view, it reminds me to pick a necklace out. Since I used decorative paper and pins that I already had, the project cost me about $7 (the cork tile came in a package of 2, so really it cost me about$5.50)
No more out of sight excuses AND the whole project took about 10 minutes, and that includes hanging it up.
