A designer protective case isn't the only option available for you. You can get really creative with your storage alternatives as long as you're paying close attention to the above storage factors. Combined with online DIY instructions and a step by step tutorial, you can transform dollar store items into beautiful jewelry organizers. These are great, fun projects to do with a significant other if you're looking for a new hobby to try out. The following are just some of our favorite DIY jewelry organizer ideas, but they're a great list to start from.
1. Keep your entire collection of jewelry organized and tangle-free in a cheap box or case. There's nothing worse than untying tangled necklaces from your favorite rings. Jewelry clutters are a pain. You could buy the box from a dollar store, or you can make it out of things around the house.
2. A jewelry tree is a great way to display and organize your decorative pieces. In most cases, you'll see all your jewelry at once. You can eyeball for your favorite pieces and take it whenever you'd like. Most jewelry trees serve as beautiful necklace racks that work wonders as an attractive necklace organizer. The hanging of necklaces makes life so much easier by preventing jewelry clutters.
3. A jewelry armoire is a perfect storage solution for your larger pieces of jewelry. Most armoires double up as a jewelry storage mirror. You can easily use it to try things on without having to run off to the bathroom mirror.
4. Use a pretty plate or tray to display your favorite jewelry pieces. Some jewelry trays and plates are stackable. This allows you to add greater amounts of jewelry organization. If you have unused plates or trays that can't stack, making your own rack from pieces of wood and some nails can do wonders. You've got more vertical space to work with for your jewelry items. Reusing old vintage dishes can help revive their usefulness. Vintage plates can further double up as a stylish jewelry organizer.
5. A utensil holder can also double as a jewelry holder. You can find these at a lot of department or office supplies stores. Look up DIY jewelry storage ideas online for organizer tutorials to transform your holder properly. A simple idea if you don't have one lying around is to use a paper towel roll. If you don't have that, use a toilet paper roll. Cut them in half vertically to turn them into cheap holders. If time isn't an issue, consider following a DIY tutorial on making paper mache to create a jewelry holder.
6. A wall-mounted jewelry organizer is a great space-saving solution. Most that you can find from furniture stores will have spots for your stud earrings, bulkier necklaces, and everyday rings. You'll be able to have your entire jewelry collection organized in your professional organizer. Some organizers aren't marketed as a jewelry organizer, but anything that can store small objects can be transformed as a DIY jewelry organizer. You just have to be creative with the items and space that you have.
7. A jewelry pouch or bag is a great way to keep your jewelry in one place and protected when you're on the go. A customized bag works well if you don't really care about a beautiful jewelry display to show off.
8. Use a drawer space organizer in an existing desk to put any type of jewelry you can think of. Choose a cool, dry place where you can add divided compartments. You can go to any supplies store and use dividers specifically for organizing desks.
9. Use an existing cigar box and redecorate its exterior. You can use budget-friendly materials to enhance the look of your basic jewelry box. Give the box a decent paint job with spray paint and create dividers for the inside. This will organize your assorted jewelry. You can reinforce the inner walls with a handmade wooden frame to strengthen their structure.
10. Refurbish one of your shoe boxes to create a custom jewelry box. Create an attractive design pattern of your choice and add decorative hooks on the inside. This can keep your bulkier bracelets and necklaces out of the way.
