My goal for this upcoming year is to make a few crafts. For my first official creation, I decided on something to organize my necklaces. I get very frustrated with how they always end up in a knotted mess.
I had seen a few really great ideas, and I decided on a frame with hooks in it. I used wrapping paper for the background (Dollarama). The frame came from Value Village ($4), and the hooks were from Home Depot ($1.15 per package). The whole thing cost less than $10 to create. I am really happy with it. Eventually we will repaint the room, which is why I am went for the black and white colour theme.
I used a piece of cardboard behind the wrapping paper to make up for the space of the glass part of the frame that I didn't use. I wrapped the carboard/back of the frame with the wrapping paper and pressed into the frame (being careful not to rip anything). The hooks screwed right into the paper/cardboard/frame back and are pretty secure. They do poke out the back, I will eventually cover the pack with some paper to protect fingers and wall.
I measured roughly 3 cm between hooks and alternated them high/low. I was a bit off in the measurements, so the last hook is actually a bit further than 3 cm from the edge. My very accurate husband thinks it looks fine and it is barely noticeable.
I think it looks like a great piece of art up on the wall. How do you store your necklaces?
