DIY Jewelry Holder





This is an easy and simple DIY project that makes organizing your jewelry easy and fun to look at! All you need to do is run out to your local Hobby Lobby or craft store and you can get all you need right there.  


Items needed: 


1 - board from the craft wood section the one I used was roughly 6"X36" (I had my dad cut mine down once I got home but I wish I had left it its original length) 

1- one package of wood clothes pin 

Glue Gun 

Glue for Glue Gun 

optional: 

Paint 

Stain 


How To: 


1. The first step is optional which is to paint or stain the board and the clothes pins you are going to use.  I pulled apart my clothes pins to stain them....BAD BAD IDEA!!! I nearly broke every single one of my nails trying to put them back together.  So I suggest that you keep them together and just stain or paint them like that.  Trust me it will be worth it in the long run. 


2. Now if you chose not to paint or stain your boards or clothes pins you can join in on this lovely DIY right now.  This step is so complicated you just won't be able to do it...ok I kid its so easy that even the kids I babysit could probably do it if I wasn't a perfectionist and it wasn't a glue gun we are using.  Take your glue gun and run a bead of glue down one part of the clothes pin then glue it to the board.  Be careful not to use too much or it will show once you place it on the board.  Repeat this step till all the desired clothes pin are attached to the board. 


3. Once you have have allowed them to dry ohhhh about 2 minutes you can then decide how you want to put it up on the wall.  I am a HUGE fan of 3m command strips and hooks.  I have used MANY, MANY of their products over the years because I am a renter and they are simple and easy to use and really do work! I used three 3M Command Velcro Strips to attach to my wall and waited the time they suggest before hanging up it up and hanging my jewelry up as well.  

 

4. Admire your handy work and send the pictures to all your friends...oh wait that's me hahaha 

 

Now my mom loved mine so much I have to make her one but she isn't going to use it for jewelry but to hang her scarves, leggins, and cami's instead.  I am going to make myself a few more as well for the same things at my apartment. 


So just in case you didn't get to see it enough the first time here it is again :) 



So there you go, simple and easy.
