DIY Jewelry Hangers…

Hey Everyone!
Sorry, I haven’t posted in a few days! 
This weekend was a little crazy & with me being back to work on Thursdays & Fridays, I’m having a hard time getting posts put together! I need to get ahead instead of posting projects as I get them completed! One of these days, I am going to be one of those organized bloggers who have weeks worth of posts just sitting in draft mode & ready to go! 
Maybe that should be one of my new years resolutions?!
Anyway….I just got the boys down for their afternoon naps & I thought I would drop in to give you all a quick little tutorial on how I (with the help of my dad) made my jewelry hangers for my new closet!

I needed somewhere to hang my necklaces & I wanted to tie the hangers in with my new glass knobs I purchased for my dresser along with my little chandelier lamp, so this is what I came up with….
They are simple, but with little bit of glam, thanks to the cute glass knobs I purchased for them!
I bought the knobs at Hobby Lobby. They were $6.00 a piece, but I got them half off, 
so I only paid $3.00 for each one.
I also purchased these wooden oval medallions (I guess that is what you would call them) at Hobby Lobby. You can find them in their unfinished wood department.
I liked them shape of them, plus a just 50 cents a piece, you can’t go wrong!
I painted each one with the same blue color I used for my dresser & shelving. It’s called “Sparkling Lake” & it’s a Valspar color that I found at Lowes. I will tell you, that I purchased it a couple years back, so I don’t know if they still have it or not. I just happened to have the can of paint from my last project, so I took it in & had them re-create it using the information on the label. Whether or not you can still purchase the color is beyond me! 
Then, I had my dad drill holes in the center of each one to make way for the new knobs!
In order to hang these, I knew that the backside of the medallions would have to be flush with the wall, so my dad also drilled a larger hole in the back of the medallion where the nut could be embedded inside the wood. (Scroll down if you don’t know what I’m talking about!)

Then, we (& when I say “we” I actually mean my dad) screwed the knob in place on the medallion & then used a pair of pliers to grab the nut & tighten it further into the wood.
Once the nut tightened down inside the wood, we then used the pliers to break off the excess screw on the backside of the medallion, in order for it to hang flat on the wall.
I also purchase some sawtooth picture hangers at Hobby Lobby like these, to put on the backside of the medallions to then hang on my wall.

And that’s it! 
Cute & inexpensive hangers for your necklaces!
I’m really happy with the way they turned out & I have even purchased a few more supplies to make a couple more! A girl can never have too many accessories ya know!

Be sure to stop by tomorrow to learn more about the wall stenciling! I spent my day this past Saturday with my friend Mandy, from House of Rose.

We decided to do the same wall stencil on her closet wall & I helped her to organize her space a bit!

Since we were stenciling, and because so many of you asked for a tutorial on how to do the stencil, we decided to shoot a little video tutorial (or vlog) to show you how!!

You won’t wanna miss it!!

  2. Those jewelry hangers are so practical. I love how they make your jewelry super accessible. What I like about wall hangers is that they are so simple to install yet so functional. I have installed several picture hangers, jewelry hangers, and art hangers on my bedroom wall yesterday and it took me only 30 minutes to install.
