Finallly a DIY

Ok ok, I've been putting this off waaaaaaay too long!


This is what were going to make today!!! YAY!
If you can't see, or just don't get it, this is a jewelry hanger (I made it about 4 yrs ago...) I don't know about you but I like to have all my jewelry displayed instead of just shoved into a box somewhere. It makes it a lot easier to pick stuff out in the morning, and you don't have to worry about it getting all tangled.
So that being said, here's how you make it! (don't worry, its really easy)
- small scrap of wood
- wooden spools
- wood glue
- paint/decorations etc.
- a screw gun
- screws
- a stud finder (optional)

So first you want to take your spools and arrange them in a line (or not... just however you want). Glue these down with wood glue. If you don't have wood glue, other glues will do (hot glue, Elmer's glue) but this is the best when it comes to hanging heavier necklaces.

When the glue dries, you can decorate it however you want. I used acrylic paints, and finished a glitter spray paint, but you can use whatever you have.

The last step is the hardest... Securing it to the wall, since it involves the ever complicated screw gun! ahhh Ladies, if you've never used one before, find someone who has (boyfriend, dad, brother, neighbor, whoever) But basically you just find the stud in the wall, and screw it on in...

If you simply can't manage a screw gun, you might be able to hang it with a picture hanger and wire. But this way will be kind of unstable. So keep that in mind...

Once its hung, just go ahead and arrange you necklaces/bracelets on it, and you're good to go!
