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.

 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.

 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?

  9. Hola, I’m going to try making the Necklace Organizer, if it comes out half as good as the photo, I’ll probably use it to make into Saturnalia gifts, gracias.

    1. It’s so easy to make and fun to use. I’m sure that they’ll make great gifts. Have fun crafting and organizing!

    1. Point taken, Cindiy! I had the scissors right there and was too lazy to go get the screwdriver. But I should have walked the 34 steps it would have taken. šŸ™‚

  10. great idea and looks easy enough that I will try it. I am a stroke survivor 19 yrs. now and only have the full use of one hand. I use a cane in my apt. and a scooter that I call my year round convertible to get all over my small town to get to appointments and run errands. I am a volunteer with the Town Festivals committee and have been since I moved back here 12 yrs. ago. Always looking for easier crafts that I can do.

    1. Carolyn, I love your spirit and the town festivals committee sounds like a lot of fun. Have fun making this necklace organizer. And be sure to check out my other crafts because I only do easy crafts (life is too busy for complicated! šŸ˜‰ )
