Two DIY Jewelry Organizers

My jewelry box is overflowing with bracelets and other pieces that have a special story.  I will show you how to make two bracelet holders – a DIY holder and a DIY earring organizer for better storage and a pretty display.  Now that I see all of my jewelry because it is displayed, I will wear it more.  These DIY jewelry organizers will give you storage, more space, and help you keep your jewelry visible and organized.  The T-bar holders are at different levels so that your bracelets will not be hidden.

I searched Pinterest for jewelry storage DIY projects and then Amazon for a bracelet holder as well as jewelry organizer.  When I’m researching, I can get overwhelmed.  So, look at your jewelry that needs organizers and holders…and be specific.

Earring Holder/Organizer

My wall hanging earring organizer inspiration was on Amazon, but it was $42.  Look at the bar you can take off and slide bracelets onto.  See the question mark hooks for extra storage?  I loved how tiny the chicken wire was to hold my hanging earrings.  But it was too expensive.  So I found one on Amazon for $15-ish dollars.  I can’t find the link but will look for it.  I love how rustic the wood is.  I can screw in the little hooks.  But I don’t think I’ll need hooks.  I wanted the earring organizer to blend with my furniture so that your eyes are drawn to my DIY bracelet holder so I just spray painted it-the DIY-er’s duct tape.

I spray painted this wooden frame and chicken wire and bought these beautiful command strip pegs that will match my T-bar organizer that I’m fixing to show you.

Bracelet Holder DIY

You are going to need two paper towel tubes, fancy paper or velvet or felt paper, E6000 glue, and candlestick holders.

See how cloudy my candlestick holders are?  I wish I remembered who gave these to me for my wedding so that I could tell them how I’m repurposing them!

Use one part vinegar to 3 parts water and let them soak for 5-30 minutes.  I just sat one end in the vinegar to test it out before submerging the entire holder.  Mine almost immediately came off with just a tiny bit of rubbing.  Now if you have wax, that will require some extra products, but since my bracelets will be stealing the show, I left the tiny bits on my candlestick holder.  And you can clean out your drain and shine your sink with the leftover vinegar mixture.

Crystal (aka cheap glass) looks so pretty when it’s clean and sparkly doesn’t it?  Notice my candlestick holders for this DIY project are two heights and two designs.  That is the beauty of DIY isn’t it??

Once you have cleaned your “crystal” pick out your favorite felt.  In the store-bought jewelry holder and bracelet organizer, you’ll notice it’s usually a black velvet felt material.  I didn’t want black because it was heavy looking for my already-heavy-dresser furniture.  I didn’t want gray because it felt blah.  So I bought this beautiful glitter paper from Hobby Lobby.  You know I love aqua!

Grab your nearest ruler-isn’t this one cute?  It’s multifunctional in the kitchen; it pulls out our toaster oven rack.  Measure the leftover area, leaving just 2 millimeters extra on the end of each tube.  Make a line and cut off the excess paper.  We have to cap the ends of the tube in order to complete our bracelet holder project so we need something for them to stick to.

I start halfway down the paper with glue, put the tube on that glue and roll the paper up on it so that I can keep the ends straight.  Ya know how wrapping paper rolls up into a diagonal sometimes? E6000 is great for this jewelry organizer DIY project because you can pick up and rearrange vs hot glue permanent sticking.  That’s for other projects.

Once I’ve rolled it up completely, I do hold the seam down for a few minutes and eventually place the tube seam down and place a dish towel on it for weight while it dries.

 

What other objects could you use around your house to hold these paper towel rolls?  Be creative or shop in a thrift store for your favorite repurpose items.

What are you needs or problems with your bracelets, bangles and other jewelry?

Aren’t they beautiful??!  I’m going to put my bracelets I don’t wear very often on these.  My bracelets are displayed now in an organized way.  I have storage for my less-worn bangles and earrings.

I bought this toddler aqua plate at Target for 83 cents to store my bigger earrings that I wear most days.  It blends and does not look like a baby plate.  I was going to add pom poms, but i think that would look a little kiddish so now I need to think of another DIY project with these.

Packing Cubes vs. The Rolling Method

POP into my LauriePOP Ideas That POP YouTube Channel above for the test and review of packing cubes and the rolling method.

When you travel to Europe in a carry on suitcase, which method do you use – the packing cube or rolling – for your clothes?  I will test and review each way to pack.  Since my suitcase is a carry on, I need a packing method that takes up less space.  I want to maximize the space I do have so that I can bring 13 outfits and 5 tennis shoes with me.  Thanks for POPping by!

packing cubes vs rolling 13 outfits

My friend Kira has packing cubes for every member of her family and loves the cube method.  I have just always rolled my clothes.  I’m really good at mixing and matching my outfit pieces so that I can get more bang for my trip.  I bought an inexpensive packing cube set…in pink!  So, I’m already a fan.  The zipper itself seems fragile, but the zipper handles are a great rubber strength.

packing-cubes-vs-rolling-clothes-storage.001

The cubes are large and would be great for larger suitcases.  In my carryon only the large cube fit.  Diniwell gave me two more cubes as well as 3 laundry bags (not sure why I need 3).  If I had a large suitcase that I could check in at the airport, these cubes would be great.  I would buy another set.  I do roll my clothes before putting them in the cubes.  You can stack them, you can squish them, and you can stuff them.  In order to maximize the space of each cube, I would roll the clothes again at the end of my trip, which does take time.  But each method requires that time and is worth it!

packing cubes vs rolling method

Rolling is still my preferred packing method because each piece can be molded into a shape.  I can get the clothes way down in-between the metal bars of my suitcase base.  They can get in-between the shoes.  I can even put them in the outer pocket of my suitcase.  My rolled version in the video above shows that the rolling method allowed for more space…not enough for a mind-blown declaration, but since I prefer rolling, I noticed.

5 MakeUp Organizers That Are Already In Your House

I seriously need help with how to organize my cosmetics.  I looked to my makeup holders and my existing beauty products drawer situation.   I didn’t want to buy a caddy to hold all of my make up so I adjusted my “glasses.”

I stared at my drawer for 3 seconds and thought, “Why am I using this narrow drawer for my makeup?”  A wider drawer is RIGHT BESIDE the narrow one.  Wider drawer equals more organized eyeshadows, powders, and other essentials for skin care.  But I know wider, for me, means more room to spread everything around with no rhyme or reason.How-to-Organize-Makeup-Drawer-Holders-Caddy-Beauty-Products.001

When you put your Creative MakeUp Organizing spectacles on, you see your ordinary items in a whole NEW way.  Pantry Containers I now see as Makeup Holders: Makeup - bag.001

Fit

I have been in this house two years, bought these containers on Amazon just to get everything in a place and am now rethinking that plot.  I tried both containers side by side, and they just don’t fit.makeup-messy-organized

No idea why I gave fingernail polishes a home in the wide drawer! organize cosmetics holder makeup vanity repurpose

  1. Switch drawers.
  2. What containers will puzzle together for maximum storage?
  3. Which containers are free in my house?
  4. Spray paint for a uniformed look.

See how perfect these shapes are?  We can puzzle piece them together for cosmetic storage, uniform look and fit all for one super low cost!  I spray painted them all and love them! PIC_0478

I also spray painted my yogurt container and wrapped it with washi tape from my Happy Planner videos. Look what fits perfectly in them! holder-how-to-organize-makeup-holder-qtips

I truly love the containers I bought and have used for two years!  I will continue to use the more narrow one to hold just the cosmetics that I use the most often.  It’s super sturdy and clear and clean looking.  The wider one will continue to hold my fingernail polishes.  In the video above you can see the beveled floor of these containers.  I would venture to say that they are unbreakable!

 

So I put my blush, Milani Eye Palette, Japonesque Matte Palette, Bronzer, brow gel, and blue eyeshadow in the narrow container.  five-makeup-organizers-already-in-your-home-holder-cosmetics

My cracker box holds my highlighter, vaseline, powder and hair holders.  I love the look of this.  Even more is my love for function!  I did this for such a low cost!  Yay DIY!  Yay me!
