Operation Organisation – DIY Jewellery Hanger

March 26, 2014


It is a shame to keep beautiful necklaces hidden in a dark drawer, they end up getting tangled and damaged.

I made this DIY jewellery hanger so that my necklaces could be forever on display and at my fingertips when I am getting ready in a rush.

Here’s what you need to make your own:

  • Wooden coat-hanger
  • Hammer
  • Tacks

Tip – Pick a coat-hanger with a bar across the bottom as this will keep it balanced when you start to add your jewels.


Hammer the tacks into the hanger symmetrically at equal distance across the top. You only need to tap them around a third of the way in.

Hammer a nail into the wall and secure the hook of the hanger in place with an elastic band to stop it slipping. I used a feather hair-clip to hide the hook, you can see this in the photo below.

Now you are ready to start hanging your necklaces, this is a bit of a balancing act! Start at the edges and work your way in.


You could even jazz up your jewellery hanger by adding a splash of colour, read my Paint Project blog for tips.
