D.I.Y | Chalkboard Necklace Hook

This DIY was inspired by Project Organize and I thought of the idea due to left overs from past projects . If you don't happen to have left overs it's a real easy project to supply and you can customize it to any size. 

What you'll need:
  • Chalk paint (check acrylic paints in craft section)
  • Long piece of wood (mine was 17 1/2" wide and 3/4" deep)
  • Photo hangers
  • Knobs
  • Screw driver or Electric drill
  • Screws or washers (depending on the type of knobs)
  • Hammer
  • Nails
  • Sharpie and Pencil
  • Ruler/Level
  • Chalk
On the back side of the board draw a line in the middle of the board.

Take your knobs and figure how you want to place them. Mark where they will go on the board.

On the front side of the board paint on chalkboard paint and let dry.

If you have an electric drill feel free to drill holes in the marked areas. Because my knobs were extras I have to buy screws so I measured the depth of the board then gave a little leftover so it would go into the wooden knobs. Use the screws if you don't have a drill for the holes.

We're not done yet!

Take the photo hangers and use a ruler/leveler to make sure they're level with each other before nailing them in the back. 
Take ruler/level and mark (with pencil) where the nails will go to hang board. This helps make sure it hangs level and it marks where we put the photo hangers on the board.

Draw on it with chalk and then hang your necklaces on your new necklace hook. Hint: wet the chalk with a paper towel for smooth writing.

Now you have a fun way to hang and display your necklaces! You can also use this for hanging coats, belts, or even purchases. Hope you enjoyed this project.
