Necklaces get tangled easily and once they tangle it is hard to untangle them. Especially chains tangle and are hard to get untangled. Storing necklaces in a jewelry box with tiny compartments is one way to store the necklaces but the compartments can allow the necklaces to tangle. It is best to store necklaces hanging to prevent them for getting all tangled up. Here is an easy to make necklace holder.
All you need is a piece of cardboard, cloth and pins with heads on time.
Take the cardboard and cut it into a square. Cover the cardboard with some cloth and pin the cloth on to the back side of the cardboard with some pins to hold the cloth in place. Then take the pins and pin them to the top front of the cloth covered cardboard and hang your necklaces from the pins. You can put in as many pins as the cardboard will hold. Hang the homemade necklace holder up where you can get to it easily and you can have complete access to all your beautiful necklaces.
The cloth you use can be a pretty piece of embroidered material with pretty designs on it. Flowers, cats, or plants can be made into a pretty necklace holder. You can use any type of cloth as long as you will be able to see the necklaces that you hang on it. You can even use a favorite t-shirt that you put some cardboard on the backside to stiffen up the material.
The cardboard should be somewhat tough and stiff. You can double up a piece of cardboard before you put the cloth over it to use as a necklace holder.
The pins should have big heads on them so you can see and keep track of where they are pinned into the fabric. You will want to be able to put necklaces on the pins and take them off again and still be able to find where the pin is.
Your necklace hanger can even be used to sell jewelry off of since you can see the jewelry easy. You can also use it to hang other small items like hooks and buttons. A homemade hanger can be a great place to store any small lightweight items so you can easily remove them and place them back up on a hanger. This project is inexpensive and very easy to make.
