DIY Jewelry Organization

I love my jewelry, and I love wearing it.  I hate trying to fish through a bowl or a shelf to find a matching earring though.  I decided I need to create something that could hold my jewelry and be super cute at the same time.  This is the DIY jewelry organization I came up with!


Do you want to make one for yourself?  It is SO easy to make.  I actually made them with the Young Women in my church group and they really enjoyed it.  We found the cost to end up being about $2 per girl to make these.  They are SO affordable and fun to make.

Supplies needed:

  • (2) 1×2 wood pieces cut to be 1 ft long
  • (2) 1×2 wood pieces cut to be 2 ft long
  • Staple gun
  • Chicken wire- cut size to 1 ft X 2 ft
  • Paint
  • Ribbon
  • Little Nails

Start by sanding and painting your wood.  It is way easier to do it before everything is put together.  I only painted the front and sides, but you can paint the back too if you would like.  Next you will create a frame of sorts.  I placed my wood pieces like this and then used the staple gun to hold the parts in place.


Once you staple the front, flip it over and add the chicken wire.  I made sure to staple the connections of the wood really well so that it was sturdy.


I wanted to be able to hang some necklaces as well, so I used some small nails and hammered them into place on the front of the frame.  Looking back, I probably should have either added more nails, or used bigger nails because the smaller nails don’t hold very many necklaces.

Last thing you need to do is attach the ribbon.  All I did to attach it is to knot it around the top of the frame and leave enough ribbon to hang it from.


Ta-da!  Now you have a fully functional and stylish way to hold and organize your jewelry!

I love the chicken wire idea! It gives a lighter, more delicate look compared to other wire meshes/screens.

Love this wonderful idea!! I have some left over “carpenter’s cloth” which is actually just smaller-hole sized chicken wire, from Home Depot. (I have no idea why they call it carpenter’s cloth). I wonder if I could use it, in place of the chicken wire shown in this project? Any thoughts?

[…] To make a jewelry organizer that looks something like this you need some wood pieces for the frame, a staple gun, chicken wire, paint, little nails and ribbon. You paint the wood, put it together and then you add the chicken wire. The nails are extras for the bottom part of the frame.{found on site}. […]
