DIY Necklace Rack


I found this old frame on the side of the road a few months ago before we moved. I was originally going to use it for my DIY Chalkboard project, but the canvas was too bumpy for the chalkboard surface.

I ripped out the painting (sorry Miss Artist. It actually had a note on the back. Someone gave it to their Grandmother as a Christmas gift in the 1960s. Too funny.) and spray painted the frame white. Then I used pushpins to determine how far apart to put my hooks.

Then I inserted the hooks. This took a lot of…. determination. There was a thick plastic-like coating on the frame (it wasn’t hardwood) so I needed to use some extra elbow grease to put the hooks in. (A rubber mallet and a pair of pliers also helped.)

The frame already had the frame mounting hardware, so I just need to put it on the wall and add my necklaces.

This project cost me a cool $0.00, since I already had the spray paint and hooks and I found the frame on the side of the road. With some garage sale luck though, you might be able to pull off this project for somewhere around $6-8.


How do you keep your necklaces from getting tangled up?

  1. The sort answer is I don’t…and I have no patience for getting the knots out either…lol This is a great idea! I might need one of these to hang up all the necklaces I’ve been making lately…
