Hanging Jewelry Organizer

I have a lot of jewelry but there are only a few pieces that I wear on a regular basis. Until today, that jewelry was stuffed into a jewelry box. That’s not always a bad thing but I constantly found myself untangling necklaces and digging for the second earring. So I decided to make my own hanging jewelry organizer so that I could easily find the things I was looking for. It costed about $25 to make and seems to work well. If you like the idea and want to make your own, keep reading 🙂


Things You Will Need:
Mod Podge
Black paint
Jewelry hooks
Frame hangers
Scrapbook paper
Paint sponge/brush
Short votive holders
Shadow Box (without glass)

*You can ignore the bling. I thought I would use it but decided that I didn’t want to make the box look tacky.

Paint one side of the box. Let it Dry.

Paint the other side of the box. Let it dry.

Paint a thin layer of Mod Podge onto the back of the scrapbook paper and lay it evenly into the box. Make sure you smooth it over with your fingers to get out bumps or creases that might have formed.

You can paint another thin layer over top for extra protection if you would like.

Step 4
Screw in the hooks that will be holding your necklaces and bracelets. You can use your fingers for this.

If the back of the hook comes through the wood on the other side of the frame, you can clip off the excess.

Use a screwdriver to attach the frame hangers. I put one in the center but you could always just attached one to each side if you don’t want them to be visible.

Step 6
Place a few short votive holders on the bottom of the shadow box for your smaller earrings and rings.

This would make a great birthday or Christmas gift for your favorite ladies! In fact, I might just do that.
