Wine Cork Necklace Organizer

In the past both my Great Grandmother and my baby sister have given me lovely Jewelry Boxes complete with velvet lined drawers, special ring slots, and necklace hangers.

Rather than hammering several uneven nails in the wall of my bathroom I created a way to hang my necklaces on my side of the master bathroom using just one nail.

 

My solution – a Wine Cork Necklace Organizer.

Almost as easy as hammering in several nails and just as practical when it comes to retrieving those necklaces I wear most often.

10 Wine Corks
10 Brass Hooks(5/8 inch)
2 Brass Eye Hooks
Ribbon
and a Glue Gun  

Oh!! And that one nail.

Begin by laying out the Wine Corks.  I created a bit of a stagger as my Wine Corks were various sizes.  Then glue the corks together, pressing each one firmly to the next and holding it in place for a few moments while the glue sets.

Next screw the Brass Hooks and the Brass Eye Hooks into place.

Tie the Ribbon onto the Eye Hooks and hang.

Wine Cork Necklace Organizer. It works for me!

And it even received the hub’s approval.  He noticed it when he got home from work on the day I hung it (HUGE) and complimented me on it immediately.

Pretty sure had he known about my “several nails” alternative he would have added “and thank you for not hammering in several uneven nails across the bathroom wall”.

  2. What a wonderful idea! I’ve been saving tons of corks and didn’t know what to do…until now! Thanks for linking up at MeetUp Monday – Hope to see you there again this week!

  3. Tried the hot glue and it didn’t hold the corks well at all. Drilled tiny holes through side of each cork and slid them on a wooden skewer. Held together and not going anywhere.
