Yes, this is the first DIY tutorial post on my blog. I hate to call this a DIY tutorial because it is beyond easy. But technically this undertaking is a little bit crafty, so DIY tutorial it is.
Who here loves Pinterest? Yep, so do I. A couple of months ago, I began searching Pinterest for a DIY necklace organizer to craft, as I was having no luck finding a ready made version that met my needs (I have a TON of necklaces, as you will see in a moment). It seemed everything I found on Pinterest was either too involved, or too small to hold my collection.
So, I was wandering through Hobby Lobby one day, and noticed this Paris themed corkboard. Hmmmm, I thought... I wonder if I could just stick some hook thingies in this and use it to hang my necklaces?
Then, on a separate trip to Walmart, I found these little decorative nail-pins in the hardware department. They had a nice sized hook, and the nail head was relatively short. Aha, I thought, perfect for the Paris corkboard!
So how in the heck do you make this? It's pretty simple:
1)Take nail-hooks and loosely line them up as you would like your necklaces to hang. There are no rules here ladies!
2)Press the nail heads into the corkboard. You may have to adjust them a few times for the line of hooks to be straight, or use a ruler. I just poked them into the corkboard until they looked pretty.
3)Hang your creation on the wall and hang necklaces on hooks. You are done!
You can use virtually any piece of thick corkboard you like, framed or not, as long as you can hang it on your wall, or prop in on your dresser.
Here is the finished product. Notice my ridiculous necklace collection?I hope you enjoyed this quick little tutorial!
