DIY Rustic Necklace Holder

DIY Rustic Necklace Holder

Who knew finding a necklace holder would be so difficult?! Until recently, I’ve been organizing my jewelry on a necklace holder purchased from Claire’s in 8th grade. During our move, I realized I was ready for an upgrade and have been on the hunt something simplistic.

After months of walking up and down shopping aisles and scrolling through web pages I felt defeated. Nothing caught my eye and I was ready to give up. Then I remembered the simple key holder I made for our entry way. Why couldn’t I modify this DIY for a necklace holder?! After a quick trip to Menards I had everything I needed to make this rustic necklace holder. If you are feeling generous, pick up enough materials to make two and gift one to a friend this holiday season!
