Tutorial: Necklace Holder

Okay so I've been meaning to get this tutorial up for weeks now, since after Spring Break in March to be exact. Now I've finally sat down to do it. I made this for neighbor’s daughter during our Spring Break week and love how it turned out! She loved it too!

- wood glue
- paint
- wood piece (i used a piece 17x12)
- casing to make frame (I had it cut at the store and then my husband cleaned it up with our miter saw.)
- modge podge
- 4 door knobs
- 2 hooks
- scrapbook paper 2 pages (12x12)
- drill

First lay your scapbook paper ontop of your piece of wood and cut to size. Then modge podge on to wood. Set aside to dry.

Next glue your casing pieces together, staple back and then clamp together, as you can see I used masking tape, worked really well. Set aside and let it dry, takes 24 hours to set.

While you are waiting for the frame to dry measure where you want the holes to be for your door knobs and hooks. I put 2 door knobs on the top and bottom and the hooks in the middle.

After the frame has set spray paint or you can leave it white. Let it dry. After it the paint has dried place it top of your wood and glue clamp again and let it dry.

The final product, a cute way to display your necklaces or bracelets.

I've been trying to think of a good necklace holder idea, and I might have to try yours. This came out great!
