My New Jewelry Organizer

For Talk To Me Tuesday, Tip Junkie is hosting a favorite project show and tell. Even though I didn’t post this until a week ago, I made it for myself for Christmas and it’s by far my favorite project.

Take a look at my new jewelry organizer! {{whoohoo}} I’ve had the vision in my head for over a year now and I decided that I was finally going to make it for myself for Christmas.

My problem lately, is that I’m always in a hurry. I’m throwing clothes on as I’m running out the door. Very unlike me – I know. Life has just gotten too busy to property coordinate my accessories. Therefore, I devised a system where I could color coordinate my accent pieces at a quick glance. Yep, you guessed it! The flowers above the hooks identify the color of jewelry. I hung the bracelets right next to the necklaces so I could grab them quickly as well.

Everything in one place. Well, that is until I get too many. Then I’ll have to make this just for necklaces and hang bracelets underneath. (I’ll find some cute wrought iron hooks.)

Quick Jewelry Organizer Tutorial:

I should have done a blogger style tutorial with lots of pictures but I was too excited and a little worried that it wouldn’t work. It’s been a long time since I crafted.


Large photo frame
Fabric as your base
“L” hooks to screw in
2 wrought iron decor
4 nails
Paper flowers
Rhinestone stickers
Black paint
Hot glue gun


1. Discard the glass for your frame.

2. Hot glue your chosen fabric to the frame. I did it quickly by laying the fabric down, fastening the frame backing to the frame. Cutting the extra fabric away. Then hot gluing the fabric only to the back of the frame – making sure to keep it tight. It only took a couple minutes.

3. Nail in the wrought iron decor pieces. I bent the nails in the back and then used duct tape to tape it down so it doesn’t scratch the wall.

4. Paint the nails in the iron decor black so they don’t stand out.

5. Measure the frame and decide on the width of the “L” screws. Also decide if you’re going to add bracelets and if so – how far apart you want them to be. I used a Black & Decker laser leveler and it was fabulous. (A must have for every decorator.)

When you screw in the “L” screws – they will go through the back of the frame a little. Don’t worry about it. When you’re done screwing them in – use duct tape to cover all the screws poking through to protect your wall. It’s important that the screw is in far enough so it will hold the weight of your accessories.

6. Lastly, I organized my jewelry in colors and then chose fabric flowers to coordinate. I hot glued the rhinestones and the flowers onto the frame right above the “L” screws.


Now, I can also see the colors of jewelry that I’m missing! {{evil laugh}} Time to go to Charming Charlies!

  1. That is such a great project! What a way to turn organization into art. I'm going to pass this link on to a friend whose daughter would love this idea. Thanks!

  2. That's such a great idea Laurie. My big accessories are in a cluttered draw that has a broken front and I can never find anything. I think I need to make one of these and hang it in my walk-in robe.

  3. That is so cute! I have been looking for a way to organize my necklaces so I can see them! I may have to "steal" this idea!

  4. Interesting blog as for me. It would be great to read something more about this theme. Thank you for sharing that information.
