It’s true—some DIY projects look phenomenal, but many of them can instill fear in even the craftiest among us. So many steps! We promise that you don’t need a master's of fine arts to nail this one-minute project. (Yes, you can accomplish this in about a minute!)

You’ll need two things:

1. A simple, hinged wooden box like one of these:

2. Next, you’ll need self-adhesive general purpose wall hooks. You can use the damage free or the regular peel and stick variety. That’s it! You can leave your glue gun in storage.

Place the hooks on the interior side of the box’s lid. Now you can hang your necklaces here to prevent them from getting tangled. That’s all you have to do!

Now, if you have a few minutes to spare and you want to get really fancy, you can cut a few strips of cardboard to serve as dividers for rings or bangles. Be sure to cut the strips to fit the length (or width) of the inside of the box. Put notches in corresponding places on the cardboard strips, so you can link the strips at perpendicular angles.

Of course, there is the option of painting or decorating the outside of your box, but we’ll leave that up to you! Simple and unadorned wood just may fit in beautifully with the other accouterment on your dresser.
