How to Make a Jewelry Holder

Has your jewelry ever been in such a tangle that you gave up trying to untie all the knots and just leave the mess for another time? Here are some jewelry holder designs for you to try.

These are two simple projects for a necklace holder and an earring holder to help you untangle the mess, plus it adds a homemade and artsy touch to your bedroom or bathroom. What’s even more as you get to display your jewelry even when you’re not wearing it.


Necklace holder:

You can use salvage doorknobs to easily organize your necklaces. You can find glass or metal doorknobs of all shapes and sizes at any thrift store or hardware stores.


Here’s what you will need:

-A flat piece of wood or something painted or driftwood from the beach.

-Doorknobs, as many as you need or will fit the piece of wood you want to use.

-A drill.

-Nails to attach the board to the wall.

What to do:

  1. Measure the size of the doorknob screws and drill the appropriate size hole for each knob and the piece of wood. If you are not used to using a drill this is the best time to learn or get an expert to help and supervise.
  2. Screw the doorknobs into the drill holes
  3. Attach the piece of wood to the wall where you wanted to hang and you can hang it with nails or another type of wall hanger.
  4. Get ready to untangle your massive necklaces and hang them up.


Earring holder:

Trying to keep earrings and their backs all-straight is even a bigger task than keeping necklaces untangled because they are so small. This is a lace earring holder and it’s perfect for organizing, displaying and maintaining your earrings, both studs and drops. When the lace is taut you can see the beautiful pattern and the soft fabric is gentle on the metal of your earrings.

What you need:

-An empty frame or an embroidery hoop

-A piece of lace

-Flat thumbtacks that are only used for the frame project.

What to do:

  1. If you want to paint or decorate your frame or embroidery hoop do it first and let it dry completely.
  2. Measure cut lace to fit the size and shape of your frame or embroidery hoop.
  3. If you using a frame: stretch the lace across the back of the frame and with the flat thumbtacks secure it to the frame.
  4. If you use an embroidery hoop, stretch the lace between the two hoops and clamp the hoops together.
  5. Arrange your airings in the lace and hang on the wall and enjoy.
