20+ Jewelry Organizer Projects & Ideas

Tired of digging through jewelry boxes looking for an earring or taking time to untangle a delicate necklace? Here’s a bunch of nifty projects to help organize and display all your pieces neatly. Some hang on the wall or on the back of doors while others can rest on a dresser. Many are simple to make and all but a couple are crafty DIYs (there are two sewing projects listed so far). A few of the framed projects seem the same at first glance, but there are either material tweaks or feature ideas that differ so I included them all. Enjoy!


Hanging Project [1]: Made with a wooden tray, foam board, fabric, glue, repurposed wooden boxes, paint and cup hooks.

Clay Dish [2]: Not an organizer but useful for holding coins, keys and jewelry. Made with Sculpey oven-bake clay, a texture plate (for the pattern), acrylic paint and finished with a glossy top coat.



DIY Display Stand [3]: Made with aluminum wire, polymer clay (for the stand base) and a bit of varnish.
