How to Make a Jewelry Organizer out of a Picture Frame
If your necklaces keep tangling up inside your jewelry box or you keep misplacing your dangly earrings, we are here to give you a simple solution to keeping your jewelry organized and tangle-free. With people posting pictures online as opposed to buying table picture frames, it seems as if we need to give picture frames a better and renewed use. Why hide your jewelry inside a bag or box when you can use it as a beautiful decorative element in a DIY jewelry organizer?
In this oneHOWTO article we share with you the elements to make a jewelry organizer out of a picture frame.
Find your perfect picture frame
The first step in creating your DIY jewelry organizer is finding a picture frame you like. You may use an old picture frame from home or you can head to the store and grab yourself one that matches your style. Nowadays you can find vintage style picture frames, elegant picture frames or simply basic wooden frames that you can paint at home in any color you want.
Choose your holding mechanism
There are many materials that you can use to hold your jewelry onto your picture frame. Some of the most popular choices include chicken wire, corkboard and wooden sticks. It highly depends on how many pieces of jewelry you have and how you want your DIY to end up looking like.
For instance, chicken wire may be suitable if you are planning on hanging many different pieces of jewelry; however, if you don’t own that many earrings perhaps you may want to consider using wooden sticks or small branches for your bracelets and necklaces. The latter will also give your picture frame some boho décor elements.
To attach your holders, we recommend that you use a staple gun or strong glue adhesive products. It is important that your chicken wire frame, cork-board or wooden sticks are properly attached since your jewelry pieces will add some weight.
Add cup hooks and fabric liner (optional)
Once you have completed the main elements of your DIY jewelry organizer, you are ready to hang your picture frame onto the wall and start adding all your jewelry. However, you can add some final touches in the form of cup hooks and a fabric liner.
If you are using a wooden frame you may add some cup hooks at the bottom and at the sides where you can hang your longer jewelry pieces or statement pieces. This leaves more space to hang the smaller items within the picture frame.
Moreover, if you are not fond of your wall color as a background for your beautiful DIY, you may choose to add a fabric liner of your choice behind your holders. For example, if you decide to create this DIY during the holiday season, then use a holiday themed picture frame liner for your DIY. Once the holidays are over, switch it up with a different pattern, and just like that you get to have a fun, new jewelry organizer.
