Simple DIY Necklace Hanger

Needing a place to hang necklaces that were too long for my velvet jewelry display, I made a simple DIY necklace hanger... bat-shaped, of course. ;)

I used a wood bat shape, same as the ones I used for my door pediments. I hammered in a few short nails, ensuring that the nails didn't poke out through the back.

I spray painted bat and nails black.

The bat already had a pre-drilled hole, so I simply put a screw through that to attach the hanger to the wall. Then I tapped two of the nails into the wall a little so the bat won't shift under uneven weight of the necklaces. And it was done!

  2. Really cute and creepy! I love the hint that the deeper nails keep the bat from shifting, thank you for that!

    1. Thanks! I had a bit of a struggle to keep the framed displays level, and I wanted to avoid that problem this time. :)

  3. I'd love to have my jewellery organised so neatly and aesthetically :D Aren't you afraid they will dust easily that way, though?

    1. I found with the framed displays that vertical surfaces don't collect much dust. It's the flat boxes on the dresser that I have to constantly wipe off.

  8. Your bedroom is looking more and more amazing with every new thing you add! Lucky for me I don't own much jewellery, but the few things I do have are all twisted up in a lump.

  10. So simple, yet so amazing! Wish I'd seen this before buying a bat necklace hanger. I'm starting to run out of space, though, so I might need to make an extra one :)
