This simple necklace holder is an easy and pretty way to store your jewelry!

I have been storing my necklaces in a dresser drawer. I’ve tried keeping them separated in little boxes and bags, but it has not been working very well. What I’ve been dealing with the past few months is a hot mess of tangled chains, beads, and charms. Not fun at all! I’ve been meaning to make a necklace holder for ages, and I finally got around to it. It makes me so happy to see all my necklaces lined up in a row. I even found some that I forgot I had!
I had some leftover baseboard sitting in my garage, and I knew it would be perfect for this project. If you have a hot mess in your jewelry drawer, than you need this DIY Necklace Holder! And I’m going to show you how to make one. Hooray for pretty organization!
DIY Scrap Wood Necklace Holder with Frog Tape®
-Piece of scrap wood (I used a piece of baseboard)
–FrogTape® Shape Tape™ (I used wave, but they also have chevron and scallop tape.)
-Two colors of paint
-Drill/ drill bit
-Hammer and nails
1- Cut your piece of trim the length you want, then drill holes in it for the pegs. I spaced mine about four inches apart.
I pulled off the top half of the backing, then lined the tape up straight with the edge of my board, and pressed it on lightly. I then peeled off the bottom half and smoothed it all out. Make sure you press the tape on firmly to create a tight seal.
5-After the paint is totally dry (I waited overnight), peel off the Shape Tape™. FrogTape® uses PaintBlock® Technology, which in crafting terms means it has a polymer that reacts with latex paint, forming a gel barrier that prevents the paint from bleeding underneath. I use it for projects all the time, and I love it! Check out those perfect lines!
6-Now paint your pegs. I chose to paint mine the lighter blue color, but you can paint them the color of your stripe if you prefer.
7-Add some picture hangers to the back of your board so you can hang it. I like to use sawtooth hangers. And truthfully, I forgot this step and had to add them after I pounded in the pegs, which was a little tricky. So don’t be like me, add them first! 🙂
8-Now pound your pegs into the holes. Use a rubber mallet if you have one. If you don’t, fold up a washcloth or rag and place it on top of the peg before you hit it with the hammer. Otherwise the hammer will leave a mark on the top of the peg.
