I love jewelry, but you know what I love almost as much as a new stackable ring or a collar necklace? Coming up with clever ways to store my bling. Jewelry boxes are great, but they don’t really show off your jewelry. If I buy a piece of jewelry that I love, I want to see it – I don’t want to keep it hidden in a box. I want my jewelry to be on display in my bedroom as if my room was a very cool store. Hands up if you’re with me. That’s where DIY jewelry holders come in.
Do a quick scroll through Pinterest or Instagram, and you will find lots of genius ways to store your gems. DIY trays and bowls make it easy to grab a piece and go. Plus, they’re very Instagrammable. There are also countless clever ways to store your necklaces, and cute ways to keep your bracelets organized. Furthermore, there are hacks that turn your junk drawer into an organized thing of beauty for all your jewelry.
If space in your room is tight, you are limited by how creative you can get. There’s no storing your jewels on a faux tree no matter how much you like how it looks. I get it. Space is at a premium in my bedroom too, which is why I am a big fan of DIY hanging jewelry holders. You can still see all of the pieces you have in your collection, they don’t take up any precious counter space, and they can look as chic as a painting. If you’re feeling inspired to create one, check out these pretty DIY hanging jewelry holders that anyone can make.
1. A piece of plywood, some dowels, and wood stain can create a jewelry holder that doubles as a piece of modern art.
