How to Make a Jewelry Hanger for Necklaces

Jewelery hangers are great to hang necklaces. In fact, the most challenging adornments to store for jewelry collectors are the necklaces. Ladies often have trouble in finding an attractive and convenient way to keep their jewelry in an organized manner. Jewelry boxes are a good option, but they can become bulky. Jewelry invites tangling, tarnish and lost items if you simply lay them on your bureau. The ultimate solution to this problem is to hang the necklaces on the wall. This not only keeps them organized but also makes them fully visible and displays them like the paintings in an art gallery.

You can make a beautiful, charming, wall-mounted hanger that keeps your precious necklaces well organized, easily accessible and free from the twisting and tangling damage. You can create a custom made jewelry hanger at home by spending a little bit of time and creativity. The steps for making a jewelry hanger to hang your necklaces are given below.

Step 1: Setting Up a Strip of Wood

Use a saw to cut a strip of wood that measures 8-by-3-by-2 inches. The wood strip will be readily available at the retailers store. Retailers cut the wood strip to your required measurements without additional charges.

Use a paint brush and decorate the wooden strip by coating it with acrylic paint of any desired color. Allow the strip to dry completely for about 2 hours.

Step 3: Placing the Knobs

An assortment of drawer knobs are fixed to the strip of wood. These knobs are arranged in a straight line along the strip. Use screws and screwdriver to secure the knobs in place. Use knobs of different colors, shapes and sizes to give it a wacky look. These knobs are available at home improvement shops, flea markets and thrift shops.

Step 4: Mounting the Hanger

Now mount the necklace hanger on the wall. Use the hammer to fix nails through the ends of the hanger and into the wall. Finally hang all your necklaces onto the drawer knobs. There is also an alternative way to make a jewelry hanger for necklaces by converting a coat rack into a necklace hanger. The steps to prepare this are given below.

Method 2

Step 1: Finding a Coat Rack

First, you should purchase a wall-mounted coat rack from a garage sale, an antique shop or a flea market.

Step 2: Decorating the Coat Rack

Use a paint brush and decorate the coat rack by coating it with acrylic paint and smear glitters to give a colorful and attractive look to the hanger.

Step 3: Mounting the Hanger

Mount the hanger to the wall. Use the hammer to screw the nails through the ends of the hanger and into the wall. Finally hang the necklaces to the hooks of the hanger.

 Tips and Warnings

  • Do not hang your necklaces in the bathroom because exposure to moisture and heat can damage the jewelry.
  • Organize your jewelry in such a way that the expensive metals such as silver and gold, are hung together on one knob and costume necklaces on another hook or knob.
