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 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

    Did you nail it to the wall or use 3m m stickers? ? If you used the 3m what pound did you use? And how many?

    Does the gorilla glue actually withstand the constant squeezing of the clothes hangers?? If you glued them on the wood?? Thank you! You both are Always Amazing!🌟

    Turn the clothes pins open-side-up and no matter how heavy your jewelry - or medals - are, they won't fall out.
