A Litte Bonus Project

Hey guys! I feel so bad about taking forever to get my next project up, and its actually still not done! :( But I have another project that I did before I had my resolution, and I thought I would share that with you today. Unfortunately, I only have the after photos, but really, its obvious to tell what it would have looked like before.

Awhile ago I was given a gift certificate to Michaels, and I really didnt know what to do with it. I was looking up and down the isles and found these cool cut pieces of wood that still had the bark on the sides. They were for engraving with fire or something, I don't really remember. However, for the past few weeks I'd been looking for something to hold my necklaces, and this would be the perfect backboard! I bought one and went home.

Next I bought some knobs from the hardware store. Later my sister informed me that a local store sells vintage ones for $2 a pop! I was a little bummed that I didn't know that beforehand, but you can keep that in mind if you want to do this project! These are my two favorite knobs I got:

I asked my dad to screw 7 holes in the wood for where the knobs would go, then I screwed them in and voila! a new, adorable necklace hanger. Here it is in action!
Cute, right!?!?


  1. What a cute idea! I don't like matchy-matchy, so I love the different knobs on the wood. Great idea!

  2. this is perfect :) i need something to hang necklaces on. i would love to make one of these. and you could even give them as gifts with different knobs for different people.
