Jewelry Holder Project

Necklace Holder Project

Above is the jewelry holder that I made this weekend.   I bought an inexpensive bamboo cutlery holder and lined the inside with craft paper.  The paper was semi transparent and shows some of the wood grain behind.  I used rubber cement so that it wouldn’t wrinkle up.  Next I used screen door fixtures to hang the jewelry on.  The back screws were flat and worked nicely so that they wouldn’t stick out too much on the backside.  The screw went into the post like a drawer knob would.

I had an old skirt with lace at the bottom and used that for hanging my earrings.  I have used a screen before to hang my earrings before but I found that this kept them in a nice row.  I sewed the skirt together to make three rows: a short earring row, a medium size for larger earrings and a bottom row where my large, dangle earrings could hang.  I tacked the material onto the bottom edge of the cutlery holder and used a pink leather cord that was left from the skirt to hand the jewelry holder from.

This turned out nice since I can use wall space instead of sitting necklace trees and earring holders on my dresser.  So far, the cats haven’t discovered this jewelry holder yet and even when they do, it will be difficult for them to reach it.

    Can you sell me one?? This is amazing and exactly what I’m looking for, but I’m not so crafty myself.

    Hi Laura!

    Well, perhaps! First of all are you in the states? Secondly, since this was a one off thing, another one wouldn’t be exact. I would have to find another utinsil drawer, new lining paper, and different lace piece to hang the earrings.

    I would have to see how much the materials would be and then add my time on top of that. If you could reply to this that you are still interested I can then get in contact with you to further discuss!

    Thanks! (Really glad you like it! I am finding it useful and glad I made it)
