DIY Jewelry Holder

I wish I could tell you this is a project I thought of and made because it's pretty awesome. 





But alas it was not made by me it was one of my fabulous followers! Mally was nice enough to take some pics and tell us how she made this Jewelry Holder:






I had an old flag pole that I was going to throw away but started wondering what I could make out of it instead.  It is wood so I really didn't want to trash it.  



I started thinking of all the bracelets I have that kept falling every where on my dresser, so I thought that I could make some type of holder for them. 





 I thought the old flagpole might be just the thing I was looking for! I started by to cutting the wooden pole down to size with a hack saw and put the little ball back on the end.   







I had some ribbon left over from another project and some wooden beads.   The wooden bead's hole was a little small for the ribbon to fit through so I drilled the hole a little bigger.   I pulled the ribbon through both beads and tied on one end.  





 Now the bead holds the wooden pole in place so that the bracelets don't slide off.   I just raise the ball up when I want to take a bracelet off.  I put a little nail on the top of the dresser so that the ribbon would stay in place.   





It's perfect for me and the bracelets that I wear the most are always on the ends.  





Ingenius! What a great way to reuse something you otherwise had thrown away. Thank you so much for sharing it with us Mally!!

That looks like a great idea. If you put depressions in it along the way maybe you could put necklaces on one too. Really good idea.
