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!
Clay Dish: 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.
Paper Covered: Made with heavy scrapbook paper, a block of wood, nickel-plated cup hooks, sawtooth hangers and glue or double sided tape.
Shabby Chic Earring Display: Made using an 8 x 10 picture frame, picture wire, acrylic paint & brush, staple gun (or nails/tacks, etc).
Easy Earring Organizer: Made with a picture frame (with glass), fabric, ribbon and packing tape. Sits on a chest of drawers or table top.
DIY Organizer: Frame hangs by ribbon and backed with wire mesh. Use S hooks to hang necklaces and other jewelry pieces.
Earring Embroidery Ring: A pretty tree with colorful leaves are appliqued to a piece of fabric, some needlework is added and then the piece is displayed in an embroidery hoop to hang earrings.
Shadow Box Holder: A wallpaper remnant is adhered to the back with glue then screw hooks are attached to hold necklaces, earrings and other baubles.
Refurbished Box (How-To): Spiffy up an ordinary jewelry box with spray paint, clip on earrings (1 for each drawer) and a small piece of fabric.
Memo Board Holder: Turn a ribbon board into a pretty place to hang your jewelry.
Jewelry Storage: Fabric covered cork board that’s fitted inside a frame, features a band of ribbons across the top for earrings.
