Create a Colorful Jewelry Holder

The Starting Product

When I went on my organizing kick after moving recently I came across a cute little drawer organizer. I saw it sitting on the Target shelf and it just wanted to come home with me. The only problem is, I realized I had nowhere to put it. I’m not an organize your sock drawer kind of girl (to be honest my sock drawer is like the black hole. I’m continuously amazed I can close the damn thing). I also don’t have a desk with supplies that I need organized either (I keep my sewing and jewelry making tools in their own organizer holders). So what was I going to do? I loved the little pop of bright pink and decided to have an old school staring contest with the thing until I figured out what to do with it. The verdict? I won the staring contest… and I have a new jewelry holder.

I played around with a few ideas of how to execute this one. I originally wanted metal hooks to hang down from the top. Unfortunately those all were screw ins and this is not a wood based project. The substitute? Small metal picture hangers. I figured they were sturdy enough to hold my necklaces and bracelets, and they had holes which I thought would make for easier mounting.

Picture Mounts

Attempt one involved good ole needle and thread. I figured a few loops would hold the hanger in place. Unfortunately the fabric here had no give and was extremely difficult to work with. I underestimated the thickness of the material. Rather than view it as a setback I decided to work with it. Out came the hammer and nails. Amazingly this organizer was sturdy enough to take it and I hammered each into place.

Finished product: A cute jewelry organizer with a pop of color for my walls. I haven’t decided exactly how I am going to mount it on the wall but for now it stands on top of my dresser in all of its glory. I hope to find a few other similar organizers in other colors and do a whole display of them on the wall. For now, this one has to stand alone.

  1. This is a super cute idea! I made something similar a few years back and used a cork bulletin board and inserted “Hooks and Eyes” into the cork to hang necklaces, bracelets, etc. The bulletin board is also a picture frame and has a place for pictures on the top.

    1. Thats a great idea too! I honestly just loved the color of this and didn’t want to return it so I worked with what I had. I’m really hoping I can find a few more in different colors since I didn’t see any more when I went to target again this week.
