DIY Knob Necklace Holder

I saw a knob necklace holder on Pinterest a long time ago, and made one when we moved into this house.  I had everything I needed on hand, so this project cost me $0! 

We have a very large closet in the new house.  There is a separate closet with floor to ceiling built-in shoe racks (a girl’s dream, right?) that leads into the main part of the closet. I knew I wanted to put my jewelry in this little space.  I found out last year when I made my DIY Window Jewelry Holder, that when your stuff is out and on display, you will wear it more.  Period.  It’s a fact.

I had an old shelf laying around that I picked up at Goodwill.  These are a dime a dozen at thrift stores.  In fact, I just donated two shelves the other day (clearing the clutter)!  I used one of my many paint samples to give the shelf a few coats of paint with sanding in between and a little distressing the edges. 
I have a stash of knobs that I buy when I see them on sale.  I think most of these were under $1 and purchased from Hobby Lobby.  I wanted an eclectic feel, nothing to “planned”. 
Simply drill a hold the size of the screw and attach the knob.  We eyeballed the spacing between the knobs, and it really took no time at all.  Now, my necklaces are hanging next to my earrings.  You can read about this DIY project here (one of my most viewed projects).
A simple and inexpensive way to store all those necklaces that keep getting tangled up in your jewelry box and drawers!
