Scapbook Jewelry Hanger

When you were a kid did you cover your walls with photos and magazine pages and letters from your fifth grade boyfriend in some crazy collage that made your mother’s eye tic? I didn’t. Not at all. But I did create this jewelry hanger as an adult interpretation of that. It’s totally customizable. You can even leave it plain, if that’s how you get down.

Supplies:

  • scrapbook paper
  • a small piece of scrap wood, painted if you wish
  • Mod Podge
  • paint brush
  • screw-in hooks
  • sandpaper
  • pencil
  • scissors
  • Command Strips, for hanging

optional:

  • nail polish, for the hooks, I painted mine black
  • photos, to decorate when it’s finished

1-2. Trace and trim the scrapbook paper to a size slightly bigger than the piece of wood. Apply an even coat of Mod Podge, and carefully place the paper on top, smoothing out any air bubbles. Put on another layer of Mod Podge, and allow to dry.
3-4. Once completely dry, begin sanding the edges, as you do, the excess paper will start to tear away. If you don’t have sandpaper, you can use scissors, but in my experience the sanding method creates a cleaner line. 
5-6.  Measure out an equal distance between where you want your hooks and pencil in a little dot. (You can see I used the oh-so precise finger ruler.) Screw in your hooks… and that’s it! You’re ready to decorate! Then you can hang it. Command Strips make that such a breeze. They’re made to hold different amounts of weight. I used the ones for posters, but you could always go up a size if you have some abnormally heavy jewelry.

(P.S. I decorated mine using pictures, and card stock, and scotch tape, with the hopes that I can change out the pictures if I want.)
