Necklace holder

I'm not a big jewelry person, but I do love wearing necklaces. I have quite a few that I rotate around. I have a really nice jewelry box that hubby got me when we were dating and I love it..for everything except necklaces. Those stupid little hooks and doors always got everything tangled and just annoyed me. I started just laying them on the dresser, but then the cat would play with them and they would get tangled or lost.


I looked forever to find something that would work and just wasn't finding anything. Then my MIL was making message boards and I had a light bulb moment.




It was so simple I can't believe I didn't think of it sooner. All I did was take a small piece of foam board and covered it with fabric and batting. Then I bought small hooks and screwed them into the foam board. I have a picture hanger on the back. I will probably add another one because I have a few heavier ones that make it tilt if I take them off. It works so well. I can see all my necklaces and they don't get tangles or lost.
