If your wooden Jenga set is incomplete, you can convert it into a jewellery rack! It’ll even look like a wall art on its own so whether or not you need a rack for your accessories, pursuing this DIY project is not a waste of time. You can also use the cheaper faux wooden Jenga blocks available in supermarkets so you don’t need to deal with the Jenga logos.
- Wooden blocks
- Acrylic paint
- Painter’s tape
- Industrial strength glue
- Foam brush
- Wax paper (to protect the table from acrylic paint)
1. Design how you want the blocks to be arranged first.
2. Wrap painter’s tape around the block to mark the sections you want to paint.
3. Let the paint dry for about an hour.
4. Once dry, peel off the tape.
5. Next, it’s time to build your rack. Squeeze a bit of glue on the side of the first block before pressing it against another.
6. Continue glueing until the rack design is finished. It should be fully dry in about 5 hours.
7. To hang up, either glue the whole rack to the wall or hammer in some nails at the bottom as support.
If you don’t want a design for your rack, you can just glue half of the block as a stub to hang necklaces and bangles.
You can even go beyond the usual two-tones and mix it up with different sizes of blocks. The small gap in the rack below is also good to place small accessories such as rings.Feature images from Brit+Co and Pinterest
