DIY necklace hanger. I live in a tiny house. And I’m messy. That’s why I need to find intelligent solutions to make the most of any space. I created this DIY necklace hanger to have all my necklaces within eyesight. Before leaving, a couple of drops of perfume and the final detail that makes me feel good. The alternative would be a crazy hectic search for the necklace I want followed by 10 minutes of tragedy spent trying to unravel the bundle of necklaces: 10 minutes that become 10 minutes late to my meeting, covered up by the lie: “I couldn’t find my keys!”.
In conclusion: a wall necklace hanger is the solution to a problem. I strongly recommend it.
Moreover, according to research, “crafting can help those who suffer from anxiety, depression, or chronic pain.”
Here is the tutorial to make it yourself, step by step. I anticipate that it’s disarmingly easy 😉
DIY necklace hanger
- a wooden listel*
- nails (those to use with wood)
- Pattex superglue
- paper tape
* the wooden listel you can find in any DIY shop. As an alternative I suggest you to find yourself a trusted carpenter and to recover his discarded materials 😉 Let’s start.
Mark the listel in the middle with paper tape, so that you will be able to hammer the nails perfectly in line.
Mark with a pencils the spots where you want to hammer the nails.
Hammer the nails in the spots you just marked. Try to hammer them in as much perpendicular to the listel as possible.
Remove the paper tape.
Get the right measurements on the wall, and remember to leave enough space for the longer necklaces as well.
Stick the glue to the back of the listel.
DONE! Now you can start hanging your necklaces.

What can I say? I’m very happy of the result. Now my bathroom feels much more welcoming and the necklaces are a perfect decoration!
