This is an easy DIY for your own jewelry hanger created with scrap wood repurposed from another project, fun hooks and Dixie Belle paint.
I used the bottom of a bead toy I repurposed into bead garland. Here is where that piece of wood started –
The bottom piece of that toy is now going to be the base for our hooks. We are “fifth sparrow-ing no more” all the things!
Your Own Jewelry Hanger – Step by Step
First Step – Fill Holes
- Use Dixie Belle Mud or wood putty fill the holes in your piece.
- Smush (a technical term) in your mud or wood putty into holes using a flat putty knife.
- Sand in between coats – I repeated three times since my holes were so deep.
Step 2 – Paint
- Apply a base coat – I used DB Silk Mineral Paint in Whitecap
- Using a dry brush method (see that here)
- Use DB’s van dyke brown glaze first
- Then add DB’s moonshine metallics in Wedding Belle
Step 3 – Add Distressing
- This isn’t your regular distressing – I distressed with DB’s gemstone mousse in Golden Gem
- Apply the mousse in small sections with a fine brush
- Spread into the piece with your finger
Step 4 – Add Hooks
- Measure your piece of wood to evenly space your hooks
- Place your hooks on the wood and mark where the holes are for the screws.
- Remove hooks and drill pilot holes (learn more about pilots holes here and why they are important!)
- Install hooks with screws (I used a screwdriver to be more gentle!)
Final Step – Hang Your DIY Jewelry Hanger
This hook rack can be used for so many things –
- Hang it by your entry with baskets for a catch all
- Stockings at Christmas
- If it can be hung, create this to hang all the things
But I used mine for a jewelry hanger in my new bedroom!
An Easy DIY for Jewelry Organization
I placed my jewelry hanger over my dresser in a gallery wall with more jewelry organization sitting on top of the dresser.
More ideas for jewelry organization that I use and love:
- A crystal tiered tray with demitasse cups (French for “half cup.”) This small coffee cup only holds about 2 to 3 fluid ounces! Not big enough for coffee in my opinion but is the perfect size for sorting bracelets by color, earrings by type and rings.
- A gravy boat is great for cuff and bangle bracelets. They stand up straight and are easy to grab.
- An old tin holds heirloom pieces and a few treasures like notes and drawings from my girls.
