Crafty Quick Fix: Jewelry Organizer

One of the many inspiring ideas I've found while using the website Craftster proved to be an amazingly easy and amazingly helpful one! And pretty stylish too! Following a tutorial provided by ModCloth (follow link), I created this nifty way to organize, store, and display my jewelry. The frame is 15"x15" and was purchased for only $5 at TJ Maxx. I had to disassemble it and throw out the ugly safari themed art print that came with it, but the effort proved fruitful. The asian inspired brocade is from JoAnn's. It complements the gold and chestnut tones of the frame. Common pearl-headed pins keep the jewelry in place with the help of a polyester foam inset which the fabric and frame hold in place. It took under 15 minutes and under $15 to create.

  1. I love this idea. I have always been looking for a better holder for necklaces since they get tangled in a box. I'm enjoying your blog. Keep writting. -Erin
