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!

Anyone else counting down the days until the weekend? I know it’s only Monday, but knowing Labor Day weekend is just a few short days away has me giddy. Bring on snoozing the alarm, sunset walks, and heating up the grill for dinner!

I don’t know about you, but Labor Day weekend wouldn’t fee complete without grilling out a meal. This year’s menu includes corn on the cob, peri peri chicken, grilled pineapple and a tossed summer salad. Is your stomach growling yet? I know mine is!

To spice up our patio table settings, I decided to incorporate fresh blooms. By clipping off a single rose stem and tying it around a folded paper napkin with twine, I was able to add a rustic pop of color to the table. Perfect place setting for a relaxed Labor Day weekend BBQ party!
