Cheap, DIY Jewelry organizer

I have an issue with taking my jewelry off in random places and losing it! I will take earrings off by my nightstand, bracelets off in the bathroom before I take a shower, etc. So after seeing several different versions online, I decided to make a jewelry organizer to keep on my dresser.


This is the end result- It is largely empty still because most of my jewelry was stolen! I decided to hang my most used necklaces, bracelets, rings and earrings on it. I've seen some that were just earrings though.

                                                               To make this, I used:

                                                   
                                        *Foam board


                                     *Decorative tape- I used a decorative clear tape, but you can use the printed duct tapes as well.

                                      *Tacks


 I used the tacks to make holes for the studs and to hang the hook style earrings as well as the necklaces and bracelets.




To hold all of the earring backs, I just used one of my Juicy boxes- You can make a little earring back holder on the actual foam board, but I just found this way to be easier :)

  8. Oh wow, this is such a great idea. Sorry about your jewelry being stolen, I know how it feels to have stuff stolen and it truly sucks. I just might have to try this. I didn't know that there was clear decorative tape. Where did you buy that from?

    1. I actually found it on Amazon- I just searched for printed duck tape and they have a bunch of different printed clear tapes.
