Jewelry Organizer

This is what I have been dealing with since moving to our new place. A tangled mess of my beautiful necklaces. I decided it was time to take action.


You have probably seen this project floating out there in the bloggesphere on several different blogs- like this one or this one. But I decided to take my own spin.

I gathered my supplies:
  • Empty Frame (don't need a back or a glass panel)
  • Tacky Glue
  • Piece of Cardboard (same size as frame)
  • Cute scrapbook paper (I chose a pattern that easily repeated since I needed two pieces to cover my cardboard)
  • Drawer Knobs
  • Scissors
  • Double sided tape
Step one: Cut cardboard to fit frame
Step two: Used double sided tape to attach paper to cardboard
Step three: Made holes for knobs and attached to cardboard
Step four: Glued cardboard piece inside frame
Step five: Untangled my necklaces and hung on wall

Voila!

  2. I saw this in a Home and Family magazine not too long ago, was it hard to make? And about how much did it cost?

  3. The only cost for me was the paper. But you will need a frame and something to hang the necklaces on. I wouldn't pay more than $1-$2 for an empty frame like this (check yard sales and DI). As for the knobs...get creative! Don't go to Home Depot and spend $5 per knob, look around your house for stuff that you don't use anymore. Go to a thrift store and look in the miscellanious section which usually has bags of discarded hardware for a $1 or so. Don't spend more than $10...and it is seriously easy. I Promise. :)

  4. I can't quite tell how you got the knobs securely on the cardboard, what's anchoring them on the back?

  5. Lucia-

    Great question! Because the knobs I used were intended for a drawer or cabinet, all I did was poke a hole through the cardboard, then I poked the screw through the back of the cardboard, screwing it into the knob- just like you would attach it to a drawer!

    Hope that helps!
