DIY Corkboard Jewelry Organizer

Today I'm showing you how I made my DIY jewelry organizer. For years, I've been accustomed to cramming my jewelry in a drawer somewhere. Since that doesn't work too well, I decided to come up with a better way to organize my jewelry. I decided to salvage an old frame and make a DIY corkboard jewelry organizer. The end result was great! I absolutely love the way it turned out!

I decided to hang my jewelry from decorative nailheads that I found for only $3 at a craft store.




I started out with my favorite frame ever. It was originally just a plain black frame, but I wanted it to be a little special! For a full tutorial on how to stripe a frame like this, you can visit my the striped mirror project here. I did it with spray paint!




Once you have your frame, gather the rest of your supplies. You'll need a cork roll, scissors and hot glue/staples. I chose to cover my board in burlap, but it would be cute without it, too. You also need thumb tacks or nailheads to hang the jewelry with. I thought giant nailheads would be a great special touch!




First, either cut a piece of cardboard or plywood to fit your frame. Plywood is ideal, but since I had some super-tough cardboard laying around, I used it. It worked just fine.

Roll the corkboard out and put your cardboard on top. Then, cut the plywood to the exact same size as the cardboard. Hot glue the two together firmly.



Now that your corkboard is done, wrap it in burlap and glue it tightly to the back. It won't matter what it looks like on the backside, as it will be hanging on the wall.




Next, insert your finished corkboard into your empty frame and attach hanging wire.  I also hotglued my corkboard into the frame around the edges so that it didn't budge.




 Now, comes the fun part! You get to hang your finished corkboard on the wall and hang all of your jewelry using your pretty nailheads!



I used big nailheads to hold necklaces and then some smaller nailheads to hold earrings. I just thought it would look neat to add some variety.


Some of the earrings I was able to stick directly in the corkboard. You can arrange the nailheads however you want, and fit as much or as little jewelry on the board as you choose! Get creative!


It's so nice to finally have a place to store and display all of my favorite jewelry!
