I really needed a place to hang my necklaces but really don't have anywhere to put a rack that needs to sit on a table so I came up with this idea! Best of all, it only cost about $10  Grin Here's what you need:

- Some little plastic horses (or other animals. I chose horses because they stuck out far enough to hang something on)
- Small but strong magnets
- A magnet board (or something magnetic to stick them to)
- Hot glue
- Something to cut the horses in half with (we used a ban saw)



Step one: Cut the horses in half. I cut them right before their hind legs so there would be plenty of room on their back for the necklaces to rest.
Step two: Glue the magnets on.
Step three: Stick them to your magnet board and hang your necklaces  Grin

What a fantastic idea!

My younger sister loves horses and has a pretty small room. This would be a great way for her to hang necklaces and be able to take them down when she needs some wall space.

Useful and adoreable!

That is brilliant!!  You could use the bums too, for thinner necklaces or bracelets couldn't you?  I love it.
