Conquer Clutter with 44 DIY Jewelry Organizers and Displays You Can Make Yourself

by on Jul 22, 2020

As fun as jewelry is to collect and wear, it can be tricky to figure out how to store all your pieces. If you’re not careful, it can too easily turn into clutter. Home organization stores would love to convince you to run out and spend tons of money on jewelry organizers and storage. But if you’re willing to get a bit crafty, you can easily make your own DIY jewelry organizer or holder to store your jewelry in style.               

The first question is, do you want your jewelry concealed, or on display? You don’t necessarily have to choose–I actually prefer a mix of both. Concealed or out in the open, there are many different options for a DIY jewelry organizer, in terms of looks, functionality, and level of difficulty. So there’s no excuse not to get crafting, and whip your jewelry into shape!
