I've been needing a place to hold my necklaces so I asked the hardware store for a couple of wooden paint stirrers, and with a little fabric, tacky glue and fancy push pins, I came up with this:


I sawed the handle part of the stirrers off and glued them together so they were a bit thicker. Then I tacky-glued fabric to the stirrers and hammered the push pins in. Then I nailed it to the wall. Works perfectly and only cost about $3.
