50+ DIY Jewelry Display Crafts

As my jewelry collection has expanded, my need for stylish and organized jewelry storage has also grown. Now I am in search of a practical jewelry organizer that displays all of the my options and gives easy access to the goods. I need to be able to pick out a pair of earrings quickly in the morning, and not just from the two pairs that are in the sights. Over the last year, I have tried a few store-bought wall and stand jewelry displays, but I have not fallen in love with any of them. As with most things, I am learning that homemade is usually the better option. When you do it yourself, you can customize it to fit your style, budget, space and storage needs. Plus, it is is just way more fun to choose your jewelry hanging from antlers, a cheese grater or bottle corks than from a generic plastic stand. If you are tired of untangling your necklaces in the jewelry box or if  you are outgrowing your current jewelry organizer, there are some beautiful DIY jewelry display options.

Wall-Mounted Jewelry Displays

Limited is a problem for many, including myself. If you don’t have dresser top space to spare, you can use a stylish wall-mounted DIY jewelry display. If you want more natural decor in your rom then you can try using natural elements such as antlers, driftwood or tree branches.

If you are looking for a cheap option or are interested in reusing what you already have, try repurposing old household items. A coat rack or ladder can both double as a DIY jewelry display. Drawers, shutters, windows, hanging shelves, toolkits, silverware trays, cooling racks, dreamcatchers and more can be turned into jewelry holders with some small modifications.

To choose individual spots for jewelry to hang on the wall, you can use old silverware or decorative wall hooks.

The uses for wine bottles corks are endless, including for DIY jewelry display crafts. You can create any design that fits your space and style.

If you have more time or if you are interested making something that is entirely your own creation, you can weave some beautiful components together. A photo frame can be combined with lace, pegboard or chicken wire. Cork board can be covered with fabric or paint, and tacks or stud earrings can be used to hold the hanging jewelry. You can also use drawer handles to hang drop and dangle earrings. Old plywood or pieces of solid wood can be turned into jewelry hangers using nails or screw hooks.

One of the benefits of a wall-mounted DIY jewelry display is that it can be hidden. With some added effort a jewelry display can be stowed in a foldable case or cabinet. That case or cabinet can be decorated as art, too.

As for wall-mounted jewelry displays, you can reuse household items. Cigar boxes, lampshades, lamp stands, tabletop trees, cheese graters, candelabras, cooling racks and more can be turned into jewelry displays with minimal DIY effort.

You can also combine elements to create a jewelry display. A bedpost can be turned into a tabletop jewelry display with some added doorknobs. Burlap in a photo frame turns into an earring display. A wooden post and a wagon wheel or a wine bottle and a slab of wood can become necklace holders. Driftwood can be fit together into a jewelry stand. And, a candle holder and be fit with wooden dowel or old paper towel holder to make a stand.

A few options require a little bit more effort. For example, you can use en egg carton as a jewelry holder or, for a more permanent holder, you can make a mold using clay. You can also make drawer jewelry holders using plastic bins or cardboard bins with fabric.

You can also create tiered jewelry displays using terra cotta plant pots and plant saucers. You can also create the same thing using plates, stemware and cups. Or, you can use teacups, saucers and stemware.

    Hi,

    Thanks for the great list of ideas, my other half particularly likes the cutlery board option, it does look really cool so I now need to go and find some vintage cutlery to beat into shape to make a funky board for her,

    Thanks again for the compilation,
