Love jewelry and small accessories? Who doesn’t, right? But if you’re tired of untangling necklaces or losing an earring because your jewelry catch-all can’t seem to store all your favorite baubles, you’ll love this small apartment DIY by The Merry Thought: a jewelry organizer!
This small apartment DIY will have you crafting a compact jewelry organizer to give your overflowing jewelry box a helping hand. And hey, the jewelry organizer’s design is such a standout, it doubles as an eye-catching décor! Net, huh? Are you ready to make your own jewelry organizer? Let’s get started!
You will need:
1 pc. old leather belt
Several S hooks
Hot glue gun
Step 1: Cut the Leather Belt
Trim the twig by cutting the young stems, if there are any. Using a pair of scissors, cut the belt buckle off and discard, you do not need it. Cut the leather belt into 2 strips that are equal in length. Set aside.
Step 2: Attaching the S-hooks
Turn the hot glue gun on. Slip the S-hooks onto the twig one by one. Keep each S-hook in place with a dot of hot glue applied on the back of the twig. Leave the hot glue to dry completely.
Step 3: Attaching the Leather Strips
Once the hot glue has dried completely, you can attach the leather strips. Fold the leather strips in half and fold each one to the twig. Secure the folded leather with an appropriate amount of hot glue. Leave the hot glue to dry completely.
Step 4: Install the Jewelry Organizer
The final step is to hammer the leather straps to the wall and voila, your DIY jewelry organizer is complete. Now if you’re not keen on hammering nails directly on your pristine walls, try this alternative: attach D-rings at the ends of the leather strap.
Just fold the ends of the leather straps on each D-ring and set them in place with an appropriate amount of hot glue. Leave the hot glue to dry completely. Now get a couple of stick-on hooks, hang the jewelry organizer and you’re ready to put your best baubles on display sans destroying your walls!
