Anthropologie-inspired Jewelry Organizer
Today’s tutorial will a wooden jewelry organizer that will help corral all of your earrings and necklaces in a fun and fresh way!
I have a fun DIY tutorial for you today! This year a group of bloggers and I are creating monthly challenges for our readers. We are calling it “At Home DIY.” Each month we have a challenge and this month’s challenge was to create a DIY organizational project. My earring collection currently sits smashed into a tiny jewelry box and they need some serious help. I found inspiration from Anthroplogie’s website with their Hanging Jewelry Organizer and thought, “That would be easy to make!” So I did!
Jewelry Organizer Materials
- 2 x 1/2 in wide wood (2 feet in length if making one shelf)
- Polyurethane (optional)
- Hanging hooks
- Masking tape
- Measuring tape
- Wood glue
- Nail gun
- Sawtooth hangers
Jewelry Organizer: Cut
First, cut your pieces to size. I cut them to one foot each. Next, put a coat of stain and poly on each.
Jewelry Organizer: Assemble
Once your wood pieces are dry, run a bead of wood glue on the edge to hold the two pieces together. Once the glue is dry, use your nail gun to secure the two board together.
Jewelry Organizer: Add hooks
Take a piece of masking tape and tape it onto the bottom edge of the shelf. Next, measure every half inch and make a mark on the tape. This is where your hooks will go. I had a hard time getting the hooks to go into the wood right away, so I made a starter hold with a thumbtack at each marking. Add in your hooks along the edge.
Jewelry Organizer: Hang
Add two sawtooth hangers to the back of the shelf and hang. Now you are ready to accessorize your shelf!
