DIY Jewelry Holder Tutorial

DIY Jewelry Holder Tutorial

Making a holder for your jewelry can be fun, easy and inexpensive! I love having all of my favorite pieces in rotation where I can see them instead of stored away in a jewelry box. I have been wearing my jewelry so much more since I made this nifty little holder!

What You Need To Get Started


Wood stretched canvas from art supply store (this can be as big or small as you like. I used 11x18)

Push Pins

Acrylic Paint and brush (optional)

Stencil (optional)

Customizing Your Canvas

You can get really creative and customize your canvas any way you like since it's literally a blank canvas! Since my jewelry holder was going in my bedroom, I used one of the room's accent colors, bright yellow. I painted the canvas with two coats of acrylic paint allowing for 30 minutes of drying time in between to get a bright, uniform color.

While the 2nd coat was drying, I created a botanical stencil by downloading the shape I wanted from the Silhouette online store. I cut the design out on stencil plastic and used a sponge to carefully apply white paint to the canvas after the second coat of yellow was completely dry.

If you do not have a craft cutter, you can use an exacto knife to cut out your design or just use a store bought stencil. If you are so inclined, a free hand design could look great as well. Or you can always just leave it one solid color.

Just Add Pins

Once your canvas is completely dry, it's time to add your pins! I used basic clear push pins but this is another area that you can get creative and use decorative or colorful pins. Space your pins as wide or close as you need for the amount of items you want to hang and the size of the pieces. The pins will easily push right into the wooden frame of your canvas.

Measure out your spaces and mark a small dot with pencil where your pins will go. My spaces were about 1 /8" apart.

Then start pushing!


Hang your jewelry and you're done!

Here are some great pieces to add to your collection
