Clothespin Jewelry Hanger


I wanted an easy way to display my necklaces and bracelets and couldn't find anything in stores. I decided to make my own, and it only took three materials.
1. Scrap piece of wood
2. Clothespins
3. Glue

I had a great piece of purple wood in my scrap pile that was perfect for this project. I had been saving it for the right project. I wanted to bring the purple out so I sanded the wood a little and waxed it.
Then I spaced out the clothespins. I wanted to give them an aged look so I used a grey stain on them.

I used long nails to attach this to my closet wall but you could lay this on a counter, hang it sideways, or whatever works for your space!

    How did you hang your board? I hate putting nail hole in my walls.

      use those 3M no damage strips. Or velcro but velcro sticky stuff is extremely hard to remove from walls if you ever want to move it. I just learned this the hard way. Even goo gone won't get it off. The strips are a little pricey but they really work great and easy to remove.

    How and what do you use to wax wood

    • We used a product by Amy Howard which you can get directly from her website or Ace Hardware. Put in on (I use an old t-shirt), let dry, and buff to a shine. (Note: put it on lightly or you will never get it buffed to a shine--I know this from experience!)~Vicki

    How do you hang it?

    • We nailed it into the wall, but you could use a French cleat which only uses two screws put into the wall. Another reader suggested 3M strips. ~Vicki

    Snarky Princess I have that problem too!

    This is a Fantastic way to solve our problems! Also, the suggestion for using ribbon or pretty fabric strips for earrings. I'm so excited to do this easy project I can't sit still. Right now rummaging through all my fabrics and what nots for doing this.

    I did a jewelry hang using a slim ladder. My lovely friend gifted me the ladder two years ago. I finally put it to work!
