DIY Jewelry Display

We’re in the middle of a massive home renovation and move right now, and it’s taking the oomph out of us. It’s so hard getting a new house set up, but it is so fun to see all of your stuff in a new, pretty place. One of the things I really wanted to do with this move was to get back to being organized – after our last home became completely chaotic before the move – and I have been finding fun new ways of organizing in our home. This DIY Jewelry Display has become one of my favorite new ways to display jewelry – and dress up our new space!

Jewelry is so pretty, I always feel bad tucking it away places – not to mention it gets all tangled and crazy when I place them in drawers. I wanted to make something that would allow my jewelry to hang down and be seen in a way that fits with my vintage glamour decorations at home.

I wanted a brushed metal feel, with romantic, vintage touches, so I found a few awesome and very affordable ideas at JOANN to make a lovely display that you can actually set up two different ways!

The first display I wanted to be wall-mountable, like a picture, and the second I wanted to sit on a tabletop. The display itself can easily be moved from one to the other- so if you move or change your mind on where you’d like to place it, all you have to do is swap out the base or the frame!


  • 12″ x 12″ piece decorative Darice ready to paint wood
  • 12″ x 12″ white antique style frame OR vintage style photo stand (in JOANN frame aisles)
  • 1 package gold brads
  • Martha Stewart Rose Gold Paint
  • Paint brush
  • Hot glue if using frame option.

First, we need to paint the wood. Darice’s balsam wood is thin and takes paint fabulously – just brush one to two layers over until you have a coverage you like. Let dry.

Affix to your frame by securing with small beads of hot glue around the inside of the frame making sure painted side is facing out, or place in picture stand.

Affix brads into wood screen to make “hooks” for jewelry. Hang jewelry and display!

This is a really simple yet beautiful way to organize your jewelry pieces in a way that you can easily find them and be motivated to wear them – and so pretty! I hope you enjoy making them as much as I do.
