Woodsy Jewelry Holder

When I was in Austin last month, I saw this adorable jewelry display in a boutique {sorry, I didn’t snap a pic} of necklaces hung from little twigs.  I thought it was so sweet, and decided to make a version for myself to hang in our closet.

Isn’t it fun?  Here’s what I started with:

  • frame
  • fabric
  • lace
  • twigs
  • hot glue gun
  • staple gun
  • jewelry

My first step was to staple my gray fabric to the back of the frame.

Once that was all on and the excess was cut off, I started with the lace.  I’ve used this lace in our master bedroom {here, here and here} and love thought it would be great to carry it into the closet as well.  I simply hot glued it in a zig zag pattern across the fabric.  You could probably measure and space it evenly, but I just eyeballed it.

I did three rows, gluing as I went.

The last step was to attach the sticks.  I grabbed some sticks that were somewhat thick down at the cabin last weekend.  I wanted them to have some sort of weight to them to be able to hold my jewelry without snapping {you know, with all those massive jewels I own}.  I cut and played around with the look until I found something I liked and simply hot glued them to the frame.

Then I hung it on the wall and started layering my jewelry.

I also stuck some broaches on the fabric.  They add a little extra sparkle in the middle and are easy to find.

I also stuck some earrings on the lace.  I need to get out the rest of my earrings and hang them on as well.  It’s the perfect little holder for them.

I love how it ties in our bedroom and the rustic theme we love so much, but the best part was the cost-free!  I got an old frame from my mom and had the fabric and lace around the house.  The sticks are obviously free too:)  What do you think?  Would you hang your jewelry from sticks from the woods?

  2. Angela Jones says:

    That is a great idea and I love that the lace is not perfectly aligned. I also have a problem keeping my earrings together and am constantly digging in my jewelry box to find the ones that match! Good job!

  3. Love this idea!

  4. HMMMM, I am not eyeing the little tree in my backyard with a glint in my eye! I LOVE this:) We are (slowly) redoing our master bedroom and I have been looking at all the different jewelry boards all over blog land, they are nice but this is the one I think!! Thanks:)
