DIY Jewelry Organizer

Posted on by Ashley      4 Comments

Sometimes I find something old, like this vintage thread organizer, and I say to myself, “This would be a really cool {FILL IN THE BLANK}. Well, in this case, I envisioned spray painting this white and using it to hold and organize my necklaces and bracelets. I made it years ago and I still use and love it every day. I think this was three bucks and 10 minutes well spent!

BEFORE: Sewing thread organizer

AFTER: Such a fun way to display and organize my collection of necklaces and a few bracelets.

I enjoy this right near my closet and dresser so I can grab and go my accessories.

    Ah, you can do better than that 🙁
    This just looks like a jumbled mess. How do you find anything on that crammed board? It’s not even nice to look at.

      Hi Mattie, it works for me. I have so many necklaces, it’s the best system I can find. The $2.99 price was also amazing. Looks like my necklace holder is not for everyone, but I love it. To each his own.
