This is super simple idea to display, organize, and hold your jewelry so that it’s not only easy to find but literally looks like a work of art. I came across this idea because my wife wanted a jewelry organizer to easily select what she wanted to wear.
After she recommended a piece of cardboard with hooks hanging from it, I came up with a better idea. Guys, if you don’t have any idea what to get your wife/girlfriend/sister/mom, build her one of these. You can’t go wrong.
I had some snap and click wood planks left over from laying down our floor and we had an empty picture frame (18×24 I believe).
It’s as simple as cutting the pieces of wood to fit into the jewelry frame and adhere it to the frame. After that, drill holes for the screw eye’s and hooks, or whatever else you prefer.
STEP 1: Materials for Jewelry Organizer
The frame will obviously dictate what size pieces of wood you need to cut. You really can pick whatever frame you want.
You probably want a lighter frame with darker wood or a darker frame with lighter wood. If you do get a wood grain frame, make sure it won’t clash with the wood. We had an elegant frame, which worked really well.
You also want make sure the frame is big enough to hold a good bit of jewelry. Lastly, you want to make sure the frame itself has some depth or thickness to it so the wood can fit nicely and won’t push the frame off of the wall. Basically, you don’t want the wood thicker than the frame itself.
STEP 2: Wood
You really can use any wood you want as a background, even oak/birch plywood, or peel and stick. I went with snap and click Pergo planks because it’s what I had lying around from a previous project.
If you choose to go with peel and stick, see our post here on how to cut the peel and stick.The nice thing about using peel and stick is that you can cut this with a box cutter or good quality scissors. Peel and stick is typically thinner, so you may need to put cork board or plywood behind the peel and stick.
I simply measured the inside of the frame and cut some pieces to fit. After that, I put a bead of silicone around the inside of the frame where the wood makes contact with it, and put the wood planks in as one unit, after they were all snapped together.
If you prefer not to use silicone, you could trying using hot glue instead.
Make sure there’s some weight on it or something pushing it down to make sure it makes contact with the silicon (or whatever adhesive you want). I let it sit until dry.
In the picture above, the planks still had the built in padding on it (since it was meant for a floor), but I scraped it off later with a putty knife.
STEP 3: Adding Hooks
I also had screw eyes and hooks lying around so I used them to hold the jewelry. I used a ruler to draw straight lines and then marked and drilled holes every inch.
Make sure you drill a test piece first so you know you’re using the right size for the screws, otherwise the screws eyes won’t be tight enough and fall out.
The second row was staggered so that the jewelry didn’t dangle over each other. Basically, I had rows for earrings, short necklaces, and long necklaces, but again, you can customize this as much as you want. You can see a couple other variations I did below.
Since I built this and she loved it so much, I had to build a few for her friends, and some for my family. You could even do this as side business. It is great as a jewelry organizer/display. You can’t go wrong if you give this to someone as a gift, or build it for yourself, so have fun with it and be creative. Comment below and let me know how yours turns out.
I can browse the bathmat isle for at least 20 minutes at Home Goods trying to carefully select the correct mat. I have a lot to consider in this isle and my husband doesn’t understand the thought process that goes into selecting such a simple item.

After reading about several different types of paint and their best usage, I came across a really great product. This paint is perfect for any cabinet project. Rust-Oleum’s Cabinet kit is definitely a great product, but there are other options that can get you just as good of results.
I’m a paint fanatic and I literally painted my house top to bottom, which includes the ceiling. I also painted my vanity, kitchen cabinets, and furniture. It’s safe to say I am also particular with my products (after a lot of trial and error) so I listed my favorite ones here.
