Jewelry Hanger DIY

My friend recently offered to hang some of my jewelry up in her salon that I’ve been going to for years, so I needed some kind of display that would blend into her salon decor. Although this would be just as easy to make from scratch, Brian and I decided we’d keep our eyes out at the thrift store for some kind of wood decor that could be repurposed.

I found just the thing for ยข99. The original piece is SO not my style, but I knew that it was the right size and shape for what I needed. If you make something like this from scratch- the board is 18″ wide by about 5″ high. Take a look, it’s the last time you’ll be seeing this in it’s original glory. Although I respect the original maker’s craftiness, the awkward positioning of these words nearly drove the graphic designer part of my brain crazy.


I clipped off the wire hanger and slapped on some grey paint left over from our guest bedroom. This was a quick and dirty paint job, no sanding, and I just filled in the holes from the hanging wire with extra paint.

I attached the piece for hanging on the back and since the wood is so lightweight, it can easily hang from one nail in the wall. There were also some soft pads already attached on the back corners so that will add extra protection to the walls. Something I wouldn’t worry about in my own house, but since someone else is hanging it up, I thought I’d be considerate of their walls :)

With a centering ruler, I made pencil dots for 13 hooks, alternating the height. The wood I used was pretty soft so it was easy to screw in these cup hooks without having to drill holes first.



There you have it, an easy peasy jewelry hanger that cost around $6- mostly for the hooks, and took about 30 minutes to make (not including time for the paint to dry, obvs). I’m excited to have my jewelry displayed somewhere and it was so nice to be offered this opportunity. It’s hard to make yourself stand out on Etsy and not feel lost in a sea of amazing sellers. If you are a seller and have any tips or recommended resources, I would love to hear them!

I’ve also been adding some new stuff to the Etsy shop if you want to take a look!

    This is so cute! I could definitely do with one of these to hang my jewellery on. I love that the jewellery isn’t hanging directly on the wall like some others I’ve seen, it’s much more portable! xx

    Oh this looks lovely! I’ve been looking for a good way to hang my jewelry (plopping it down on top of the dresser isn’t quite cutting it) so I might try this out! Hopefully my trouble making cats will keep their paws off of my jewelry! haha

    I love this Lisa! I’m actually just about to make one of these for my son’s bedroom with these Anthro knobs I ordered. (Not for jewelry though, just to clarify, hehe…more to hang hats, sweaters, odds and ends).

    This is genius, and I definitely need to make one of these soon. Also, I need to buy something from your shop soon! I want everything!

  10. nice job!! it’s awesome to re-purpose things like that bcuz let’s face it, no one really needs that & it’s less wasteful than buying new wood : ). so funny about the writing, i know nothing about graphic design but it even bothered me. nicely done, & exciting you can display your jewelry!
