How to Make a Jewelry Holder
I’ve put a lot of time into finding all jewelry organizer solutions possible (you’ll see the best of them below). But my goal was also to find one that’s the easiest to make and that has a lot of value.
Here’s the plan:
Materials needed for this project:
- A board of plywood
- Beautiful picture frame
- Screw hooks
- Wood glue
Easy instructions to make this jewelry holder:
- Cut the plywood board to meed the dimensions of the picture frame.
- Glue the plywood board to the frame using wood glue.
- Screw in the hook screws to your desired positions.
- Hang the jewelry.
Easy enough! And now you can hang it just like you would a picture frame on the wall. It has a lot of decor appeal, and it gives you a way to organize your accessories in a way that makes them readily available.
What’s next? You can customize it for more style and storage, such as using these organizer plans.

DIY Jewelry Organizer
If you’re going to make a jewelry organizer yourself, you might as well make one that satisfy all your organization needs. This means it has to be able to hold everything – bracelets, rings, earrings, necklaces, and a bunch of other accessories.
This organizer has to have several compartments, lots of hangers and hooks, it needs a little shelf too. And most important of all, it has to look attractive. It will occupy the most visible and accessible place on the wall of your bedroom, or powder room.
Here’s one such idea that features a nice walnut finish and a modern wood look. It’s simple to make, but it gives you all the holders you need for all your accessories. It’s a highly customizable and a well though-out project.
Over the Door Jewelry Organizer
Over the door solutions are one of my all time favorites. They are very useful, and you can use them literally everywhere (there’s always a door). Be it a closet or a room door. So here’s how to make one too.
In this video you’ll see a brilliant organizer that hides behind a mirror. So you get storage, and a mirror. Most important of all, you don’t have to think about decor at all – it’s only a door mirror from the outside.
Full Length Mirror with Jewelry Storage
Speaking of mirrors, here’s another hidden storage solution for your jewelry and accessories. It’s a full length standing mirror (that will make any corner look good), and it opens up into a neat makeshift closet for the accessories.
It’s as simple to make as it is to customize a mirror frame. It does take a fairly advanced level of woodworking skill, but it’s nothing you can’t learn by following the instructions.
Jewelry Box for Necklaces
You can’t have simple box for necklaces. They will get all tangled up if you don’t use a special solution. The idea is to have little hooks for the necklaces in this box. It works like a cabinet of sorts. Little compartments open up to reveal the hooks where you can hang the items.
You can make this fancy box, even though it takes some woodworking skill. If you don’t care to build a whole box from wood, I have a tip for you. Take any jewelry box and modify it to add those hanger compartments to the sides.
Want something even more easier? Add hooks to the sides of a larger jewelry box. You can find some great stuff in thrift stores.
DIY Bracelet Holders
This idea for bracelet holders is really simple. And its simplicity it’s so attractive. There are many ways to hand and hold the bracelets but this one is really neat.
The design of this contraption is to provide you with a bar to hold those bracelets in a very accessible way. It makes somewhat of a display too. So if you have a lot of bracelets, and you want not only to store them but put them on a show too, this is a very cool way.
Picture Frame Jewelry Box
This idea is great on so many levels. If you’re not the one to put your accessories on display, but you still want to keep them close and accessible, this is the solution for you.
Hide the organizer behind a picture! It’s a nifty contraption that will make you feel all like a top spy – hiding all your precious jewelry in a secret place.
All, in all, the idea for the organizer itself is like most wall mount board on this list. The main difference is the picture frame for the door.
Earring Organizer Box
These earring organizer boxes are like those you see in jewelry shops. I really like those. And who says that you have to be selling them in order to keep them neatly and looking good.
I love this idea and I’m so making it for myself. It’s really easy too. You just need to pick up a box with a glass lid (see-through), and roll pieces of felt on pencils to create the organizer.

DIY Wall Organizer
The thing about organizers (especially those hung on the wall) is that you want them to be small but packing lots of things. And when it comes to jewelry, that’s all the more important.
This idea for a jewelry organizer uses a pegboard and multiple frames. You can then use small hooks (for earrings and rings), and pegs for necklaces and bracelets. Also add a couple of cylinder holders for other things, and you’re good to go.
If you have a really big necklace collection, and it’s growing, you need a full rack to organize it (and display it). So this wall rack is an ideal solution. Again, you can create it as big as you need, and add as many hooks as you want. That’s the best part about a DIY project.
