DIY: Driftwood Necklace Holder

A few months ago while scrolling aimlessly through my Instagram feed, I came across a DIY necklace holder. It was made from an old piece of wood and some decorative door knobs. Since large costume jewelry has made a huge comeback, I have been in a constant battle with where to store my big, long, short, heavy (you name it) necklaces. This was the perfect solution! And since I live on the shores of Lake Huron, driftwood seems to be in abundance. I picked up four different decorative knobs from World Market in the US (I think you can also get them from Anthropology, Pottery Barn or any local home store). Mine were $4.99 each, which totaled around $23.00 for the whole project - reasonable compared to what these might sell for in a store. I got my piece of wood for free from good ol'Mother Nature and called in some man muscle to drill holes through it. This is a great DIY gift to give to your mother, sister, friend or pretty much anyone struggles with an abundance of necklaces.

Side note: Every wall in my house is wood, so wood-on-wood was unavoidable - I'm not a crazy person.

What you need:

  • Piece of wood (driftwood, painted plywood, scrapwood)
  • 4-6 decorative knobs
  • Drill with bits that match the knobs you've purchased
  • Man muscle (unless you know how to use the drill, in which case kudos to you!)

I love the sharp edges of the wood as opposed to the ragged, driftwood style.
