Today I’m able to share 3 of my favorite things with you; organizing, repurposing and crafting. I’m in such a happy place! I’ve tried so many different ways of organizing my necklaces. I felt a bit like Goldilocks – nothing was quite right. Then I remembered how much I (and my daughter) loved the repurposed earring organizer I made and I knew that I had to start organizing my necklaces with this repurposed necklace organizer.
A quick trip to the dollar store and hardware store is all you need for supplies
Organizing Necklaces DIY Repurposed Craft
Plastic Dish Drainer (from the dollar store)
Picture Frame (from the dollar store)
“S” Hooks (from the hardware store)
Trim the drain mat to the size of the picture frame backing. Dispose carefully of the glass from the picture frame since you won’t be needing it. You can paint the wood picture frame if you’d like, but I chose to leave mine black.
You need to bend the “S” hook on one side so that it will hook (and stay) on the drain mat. I used pliers to carefully squeeze one side shut. Be careful to leave the shut side open enough that you can slip it over the drain mat.
If you do happen to squeeze the “S” hook closed too much, you can slip a pair of scissors into the hole and carefully lever it open a bit.
Slip the closed side of the hook onto the drain mat. Plan the placement of the hooks to accommodate your necklaces.
I’ve been using this necklace organizer for several months now and it is working perfectly.
Since this works so well for organizing necklaces, I’ll be making more of these DIY necklace organizers as gifts. How do you organize your necklaces?
