Introduction: Extensible/modular Jewellery Hanger/rack
This Instructable shows a simple, but effective and modular jewellery hanger.
It can hung on a wall or stacked, hanging on a rack or in a wardrobe.
You could fit a lot of these in a wardrobe, and put them out individually for easy access or to match with your clothing, so I'm told ;)
Step 1: Gather Some Items
Get your mits on:
- a good quality (metal or metal based) coathanger (I purchased ours from a cheap/$2 store and they are heaps better than the plastic ones from Coles that break after a while!),
- some stick-on hooks,
- a few cable ties (zip-ties),
- flush-cutters (scissors or side-cutters may be sufficient),
- drill and drill bits to suit the cable-tie width,
- CA glue (Cyanoacrylate adhesive), sometimes known as instant glue or superglue and
- a sheet of hard plastic.
My sheet of plastic was form a defunct computer monitor, but this could be really anything, even plywood.
- Evenly mark out where you would like to adhere your hooks. It is beneficial to have the hooks on each row offset from the ones above and below (if applicable); that gives you longer hanging space! You can see I could have done better. You can put masking-tape down first as not to mark your sheet.
- I'm sure you can work out the rest, but for completeness, here we go... Glue the hooks to the sheet. Allow ample time to dry/set.
- Drill out a few holes in the sheet where the cable-ties will attach it to the coathanger. Go slow as not to crack/split the plastic sheet. Again, you can put masking-tape down first as not to mark your sheet and this will, also, give you a cleaner drill hole.
- Attach the sheet to the coathanger with some ties.
- Trim off the excess cable-ties as flush as possible, as not to snag clothing or skin! A little glue could be used on the cut end of the ties if you cannot get a smooth or close enough trim.
- Fill with jewellery and enjoy!
I guess I'll have to make some more!
