DIY Jewelry Organizaton

Today I want to share a tutorial on how to make jewelry organizer with things around the house.




First let me show you why I needed an organizer.  Promise me you won't judge me after I show you.
My daughter bought me this really cool jewelry box/picture frame.  I really love it, but as you can see it's a total unorganized mess. I have a garbage can sitting right under it and I'm continually picking things out of the garbage.   Really the problem is I have way to much jewelry! But I'd rather come up with a solution to organize it than get rid of any of it. :)  The bottom right hand picture is how I've lived for the last 2 months.  I got sick of digging through it all and sat it on my floor and sorted the earring into pairs and left it there until I came up with a solution.  The time has now come.


Let me show you what I did.  I was out in our barn and saw a huge stack of window grids and I thought that that might be the perfect thing if I had my husband cut it apart and use one side.  I have this place in my closet that is tall and skinny and thought it would fit there nicely.  Now I had to come up with a plan on how I could get my handy hubby to cut one for me. He's not real keen on disassembling perfect good things like I am.    While searching through the pile of grids I found one with 12 panes and saw that it was broke on one side and would provide me with 4 spaces.  Score!  He was fine with cutting up a broken one.
Ok, I had my place to hang it.  I had the base of the organizer and now I just needed to come up with what I'd put in each grid.  I thought about screening to put earrings on but didn't have any screen lying around.  I remember the hardware cloth I had used on my Vertical Succulent Garden I made and knew I had some left over.  That would be perfect.  I knew I had some peg board and I thought that would work well for holding bracelets. I also had some cork squares.  I could use those in the last two grids.  I spent some time thinking about how I could hang necklaces.  I had seen how some people used corsage pins but those were too big and felt too flimsy.  I thought about thumbtacks but those were way to plain for me.  So I kicked my mind in gear and and wondered about embellishing push pins.  I went to Michael's and bought some stickered jewels and some felt flowers. I got my glue gun out and started gluing the stickers and felt flowers.


I had all my supplies around.  I stapled on the wire. I used liquid nails to glue on the cork and the peg board.  I then spray painted the whole things white and  started adding my embellishments.  I used my Silhouette and cut out blue vinyl swirls.  


Ending up with this:


And here it is with the jewelry on it.
