DIY Jewelry Organizers That Will Beautifully Store Your Items
Whether it's your collection of earrings or your favorite necklaces, keeping your beloved pieces in order is simple thanks to these clever crafts.
Necklaces, rings, earrings—these precious, and often pricey, items can get lost or tangled so easily. One way to ensure your valuable baubles stay safe (and neat) is by learning how to organize your jewelry. Instead of turning over every pillow on your couch in search of a lost piece, discover how to organize your jewelry effectively using our decorative and creative DIYs.
Earrings are arguably the easiest pieces of jewelry to lose, and if one goes missing, you might as well have lost the entire pair. We're showing you multiple ways to organize your earrings to ensure they stay exactly where you need them to, while seamlessly fitting in with your décor in the process. Whether you prefer subtle post-backed, statement drops, or dangling earrings, each will find an organized home thanks to our DIYs. And our organization systems use multiple mediums, for every level of crafter. If you're looking for a way to organize your favorite pearls, our wooden triangular earring holder is a must-make. Easily sourced materials, which include birch plywood and superglue, come together in seven simple steps for a quick and stylish earring organizer. Add some extra oomph to the structure by personalizing it with acrylic paint in the color of your choice. If you can't seem to keep track of your rings, ring holders are the way to go. The ones we're showing you how to make are molded out of clay and are simply adorable. Or, for a painting DIY, you can make the trinket trays pictured here by painting small ceramic dishes that organize oversized earrings, rings, and bracelets beautifully.
From unruly necklaces to dainty rings, discover how to organize your jewelry with some of our favorite DIYs.

No more junk drawer. This DIY alternative keeps your baubles shining and easy to spot at a glance. Fit acrylic containers of various sizes into a drawer and for added luxury, consider lining the bottom with gold foil paper.
A thin wooden dowel mounted inside a closet or cabinet door using cup hooks is the foundation of a simply chic jewelry organizer. Coat the dowel with semigloss paint. Suspend S hooks from the rod (the texture of the dried semigloss paint will help keep the hooks from sliding), and hang necklaces—and bracelets and rings, if you like—from the hooks for dazzling order.

Spool Rack Necklace Organizer
Keep your necklaces, bracelets, and earrings in fine order (instead of a fine mess) by repurposing an old spool rack. Where the individual spokes typically store sewing thread, they hold your necklaces and bangles. Mount the rack to a wall, or set one with legs on a vanity.

Drawstring Jewelry Pouch
Whether you opt to make one and give it as a gift, or make one for every pair of your earrings, organizing your jewelry will be fun with this beautiful DIY.
Here's a space-saving trick: Opt for an open-face box that you can mount right onto the wall. When a shadow box is unavailable, any well-chosen crate, bin, or orphaned drawer can be retrofitted with a variety of hooks and knobs, turning your earrings and chains into objets d'art. Small decorative bowls perched on the box's lower ledge corral rings, pins, and brooches and complete the charming trinket tableau.
Ceramic watercolor palettes provide perfect slots for sorting and separating earrings and other jewelry—with no tangles! Available at art-supply stores, they make delightful displays on dressers when filled with colorful gems. They're also small enough to tuck in a drawer.
