DIY Necklace Organizer

I am not much of a Do-it-Yourself person.  I wish I was.  But, honestly my schedule is nuts and when I am not working or blogging I love to just relax and do very little.

However, my collection of necklaces was getting totally out of control and tangled on the funky Umbra holder I had.

One night, while surfing Pinterest I came across a variety of ideas that inspired me to take on a project to create something sturdy, cool looking, and functional.

DIY Necklace Organizer

Step #1:  Pick a location in your bedroom that can hold the organizer and get the dimensions

Step #2: Head to your nearest antique shop/thrift store/hardware store and pick up an assortment of drawer pulls.  I got mine at the Habitat for Humanity ReStore.  Awesome selection – 9 drawer pulls for $11.00!  So inexpensive.

Step #3: Find a board you want to use, or go to a hardware or craft store and purchase one.  Get hanging hardward for the board if it does not come with it. Mine is from Michael’s.

Step #4: Paint it the colour you want.  I used craft store White Glossy Acrylic Paint.

Step #5:  Mark our spots for drawer pulls

Step #6: Drill holes for drawer pulls

Step #7: Attach hanging hardware


Step #8: Attach drawer pulls

Step #9: Hang on the wall

Step #10: Fill it with all of your amazing necklaces!

I was really happy with the outcome.  The organizer looks great, is functional and my necklaces are spaced out, easy to find and untangled.

This project was easy, fun and a wonderful creative outlet.

  1. That turned super cute! I have a jewelry box that keeps my necklaces in order, but my earrings are a mess. I’m looking for a good DIY project for earrings.

    Love this!!! I am going to show my daughter tonight, see if she would like one for her room.

  20. I love this!! i have a bunch of necklaces sitting in shoeboxes. It’s high time I organize them.

  21. Christy Martin says:

    I love this! I saw something simlar quite a while back and I needed a reminder that this is one of those things on my to do list. I currently have everying hanging on either side of a dresser mirror and it is beyond frustrating to pull everything off to get to one necklace. Great idea!

  22. Karen Hill says:

    Love it. Very Shabby Chic look!

  23. This is very cute, and easy enough that I may be able to pull it off without my husband’s help!

  24. So cool! I wonder if I could make one. LOL!
