DIY Jewelry Holder

This post contains affiliate links for your convenience

I do not know about you, but I own a lot of so much that my husband bought me a second standing jewelry chest last year! (Please tell me I am not the only one with an #accessoryproblem)  I am embarrassed to say that my second chest is getting pretty full, so I have been scouring Pinterest for ideas on how to display some of my pretty pieces.  I love the idea of using decorative knobs, shadow boxes, or re-purposing frames.

While at Haven, I was introduced to MD Products, a company that makes everything from flooring, to moldings, to pretty metal screens.  They were showing off some of the items in the Hobby & Craft line and I fell in love with the metal screens!  When I found out they were hosting a Jewelry Organizer Make-and-Take Workshop, I was in!

This project was so easy, I wanted to share it with you so you can make your own!

Materials (aff. links):

Wooden Frame (painted or not)
1 sheet of 1'X2' aluminum sheeting (any design)
Tin snips
Safety gloves
Decorative knobs (we used 2 from Liberty Hardware)
Drill and bit to predrill the holes for the hardware
Picture hanging hardware

Step 1:

Decide where you want the knobs and drill your holes in the frame.  If you are going to paint your frame, do it first and let it dry before moving on to the next step.  Since I made mine at the conference, I am painting mine last.  I used a pale yellow satin by Valspar called Delightful Moon. (Tip: Check home decor magazines for free paint sample cards)

Step 2: 

Make sure you are wearing your gloves because the metal is sharp when you cut it.  Measure the back of the frame and cut the sheet of metal to size. Notch out where the knobs will attach.

Step 3:

Staple the sheet metal to the backside of the frame.

Step 4:

Attach the decorative knobs and the picture hanging hardware to the frame.

I hung it on the wall above the smaller of my jewelry chests and am displaying some of my favorite earrings and necklaces on it, as well as my leather headband!

This project was so easy, I made two of them during the workshop!  If you make one, please tag me on social media or send me a picture.

A special thanks to MD Products and Liberty Hardware for providing the materials for this project!


  1. This is very nice! Do I ask for aluminium sheeting at my hardware store? If so would they cut it down as well or probably not?

    1. Thanks Rose, This product actually comes in small sheets (1 sheet could make 2 of these, so you just need to cut in half) I am not sure they have this specific product at your hardware store, but if you click the link in my supply list, it will take you to the website.

  2. The jewelry holder is so pretty. I really like the metal you used. I certainly need to check it out.

    1. Thanks and it was so easy to make! I need to find some other uses for the metal sheets.
