I thought it would be nice to have something to hold my necklaces since they are all basically jumbled up on a bowl and shoved in my closet right now. I think this has to be the quickest DIY that I’ve ever done.
I love old spoons and I had some extras just waiting for me to do this project. I lined them up on the piece of wood that I thought I would use. I ended up changing to a different piece of wood, but lining them up helped me to know how long I needed to cut my piece of wood.
I used this large “mallet hammer” to flatten all of the spoons. I’m sure that you could use a regular hammer as well, this one just worked a little better for me than a regular hammer.
I drilled a hole in the middle of each spoon, or at least my estimated “middle”. I’m not a girl of wondrous measuring skills, meaning, I’m impatient when it comes to measuring. I held the spoon down with my foot to hold the spoon in place for drilling.
I then used small screws to attach each spoon to the pallet board that I had chose to use.
And, that’s it! It worked perfectly! Now, I have a place to store all of my jewelry!
I’m pleasantly surprised as to how much jewelry that it holds! I will be able to get many more necklaces and other pieces of jewelry on this little spoon hook rack.
I didn’t even measure the space in between the spoons. My eyes helped me with my measuring on this little project.
I was thinking that it may be tough to get the holes drilled in to each spoon, but it was super easy! Just make sure that you have a drill bit that is able to drill through metal.
This was such a fun little project and there are so many things that it can be used for! I love how it looks with mugs too!
I think this entire project took me about an hour. I hope this inspires you to create something fun for yourself!
