jewelry hanger {tutorial}

I've had the supplies for this project in my craft closet for way too long. Time to get down to business and give my cluttered jewelry somewhere to hang! This is a super simple tutorial that requires just a small amount of time and supplies. Plus, its really cute!

  : :  Materials  : :

  - A wooden frame with back. I found mine in the wood section of the craft store and spray painted it brown.
  - burlap
  - small screw-in hooks (I used 6 here)
  - hot glue gun/glue sticks
  - scissors

Take the back off the frame and lay it out on the burlap. Cut out your fabric leaving about an inch of room around all the edges.

Fold the burlap over the edges of the cardboard back and hot glue down. Do this on two opposite sides.

Trim up your corners to make gluing the next two sides easier.

Fold the other two edges over the cardboard frame back and glue down.

 Flip it over! Its starting to look legit!

Place the piece in your frame.

Now pick out the spots at the bottom where you'd like your hooks to go, depending on how many you want. They should just screw right into the wood with little to no trouble. If your frame is giving you problems, try using a drill with a super small bit to begin the hole for your hook.

And wow, you're done!! 

Feel free to dress it up how ever you like to match your bedroom/bathroom/closet. I made some torn cloth flowers for my to give it a little girlie touch.


  1. Hi! Great tute! I will be linking at http://www.handmade-jewelry-club.com/ in future post.


  2. Since I have stud earrings as well I did without the cardboard, used stiff embroidery fabric and a second frame.

    I staple gunned the embroidery fabric to the backside of the frame, used ribbon to form a hangable handle, and then glued the second frame to the back to cover raw edges/staples and added extra hooks.

    Turned out beautifully!
