Yesterday I spent about 30 minutes untangling 4 necklaces that had become intertwined with earrings and charms in my necklace box.
It was a mess!
I wish I had taken a picture of it. But here is the final result of my hard work.
After untangling it all, I was determined to come up with an idea to keep it from happening again.
So, here it is!
Very summery don't you think?!
I started with the only straws I had around my house. They happened to be umbrella straws from Target that I had left over from my friend's Luau Engagement Party.
Just for kicks, here we are two years ago without even the thought of Little Bug!
See the straws? They were a hit!
To make these, I first measured the length of my necklace and cut the straw accordingly.
Then I threaded one end of the necklace through the straw.
Then clasped the necklace together!
This is the way I would travel with my new necklace holders. Umbrella closed and straw unbent.
BUT, to display them, I put the umbrella up and bend the bendy part of the straw!
You can display them all in one glass.
Or, make a line of them with cute little bud vases (of which, I only had one - so imagine with me).
No more tangled mess! Each necklace has a home of it's own - a pretty cute one I think!
How do you keep your necklaces from tangling?
