How to wrap a necklace and have it stay in place

By Pinktoesandpowertools | Holiday Projects

I am having a really hard time getting into gear this morning. I need to clean. Wrap. Cook, and possibly bake a little bit as well. Instead, I am pinning and now composing a blog post. Oh well, this one is a short one…

We bought My Man’s grandmother a necklace for Christmas and I think she will really like it. We almost bought a beautiful necklace from Jacobs the Jeweller, which you can click to read about, but we, fortunately, live near to a jewellery shop. Jewellery is really appreciated by her; we bought her a rather expensive necklace a few years ago and she was ecstatic! We were also delighted to learn the necklace would be covered under her homeowners cover. This guide to what homeowners covers is well worth a read! It’s always an amazing feeling to see your family members appreciating your gifts you buy them for Christmas. However, I suddenly had a daunting feeling that the necklace may get tangled because as I was putting it in a box to wrap it, it kept pooling in one end of the box. I wanted there to be impact when she opened it, not her fumbling around untangling it before she could even see what it looked like! Admittedly, higher-end jewellery from places like tend to come in packaging that displays it just right, but the box this came with wasn’t quite up to standard. I knew I had to get my creative mind in gear and find a solution to this small issue. So I made a little something to hold it in place. It was so cheap and easy, and it worked perfectly!

DIY necklace holder for wrapping

I used an Exacto knife to cut the slits to hold the main part of the necklace in place.

Two small slits at the top of the cardstock to hold the chain in place.

The rest of the chain and the tag lie on the back of the holder.

And there you have it!

Ok, now I’ve got no excuses. Time to get to work…
