To achieve the best level of organization and keep your home spick and span, storage is a must especially if you are busy with work or with life in general.

This is especially the case when it comes to storing pieces of jewelry.

Storage boxes and other high-quality organization items can be expensive if store-bought but can also be very cheap especially if you know how to do it yourself. It’s a good thing that people can now make DIY projects as an alternative for those expensive ones that are available in the market. All it takes is a little bit of skill and creativity and you’re good to go.

An organized jewelry holder is significant in terms of saving time, making it possible for people to just choose what they want at a glance without rummaging into a box full of jewelries and not finding the ones they are looking for. If things are not organized in a jewelry holder, some would fall at the bottom of the jewelry holder where it is stored, missing pairs of earrings and the worst, having to deal with tangled necklaces and bracelets.

In this fast-paced world, selecting what jewelry to wear becomes a trouble when you find that you’re spending too much time looking for it rather than actually wearing it. A problem like this can be prevented if these little jewels are being placed in an organized jewelry holder. A simple solution to this is to have an organized jewelry holder that is customized for your own needs that is not just budget-friendly but also easy to use and ultimately, not hard to maintain. One of the downfalls of organizing jewelries is that when the type organization that you choose is hard to maintain. It is also the main reason why some people are finding it hard to stick to it and still end up with a messy jewelry holder again.

Having an organized jewelry holder signifies that the jewelries are being taken care of properly and reduces the risk of them being damaged in the process of just picking which one to wear on a day to day basis. They need to be kept in a manner that taking them and putting them back is an ease because that is the only way to keeps things neat and convenient.

We all have things around the house that can be converted into something useful instead of throwing them away. A perfect example is an old picture frame that can be turned into your much-needed picture frame jewelry holder. This type of jewelry holder lets your necklaces hang in such a way that they will not get tangled with each other as they are spaced out properly. It can also serve as an additional decoration to your home. It can be hanged on the wall or just placed on top of the vanity for easy access—whatever works best for you.

The following are the steps in making your very own picture frame jewelry holder.

To add some golden highlights, use a spray paint that is both metallic and primer. Spray that on to a soft rag and lightly graze the high points of the detail with the rag.

Set the picture frame jewelry holder over the peg board and decide where you want your tufting to be. Mark out the corners.
Cut out a few pieces of polyester batting. Cut squares that are just large enough to fit the space that was marked out on the peg board.

Figure out where you want the tufting. Find the center line of holes and then work out from there in a diamond pattern where you want each of the tufts.

In the buttons to cover kit, you will have a rubberize piece, so all you have to do is place your fabric side down. Grab one of the button tops, and you’re going to press that down into that piece of rubber, and so sometimes you will need to use a little bit of extra pressure.

Lay the fabric down over the top of the batting and peg board making sure that it is centered.
Start the tufts in the center and work your way outward. Thread the upholstery needle right through the center hole while pulling it tight. Secure it at the back of the peg board using painter’s tape. Short staples can also be used since this is a shallow tuft. For each tuft, cut a new piece of cord.

Thread through the back first and just poke a little hole with the needle and then go to the front. Just pull it tight and then just remove the needle and lay the board down with two pieces of tape ready. Pull the cord tight, press one layer of taper over it, smooth it down and then gently pull the cord in the opposite direction placing the second piece of tape down, smoothing it over and this will help lock the cord into place.

Here is a first knob that is placed at the center. Poke through with upholstery needle into each hole and kind of work it to open up and stretch that fabric out a little bit. Since the screws have to go through batting, using a little pair of scissors will also help open up that batting and fabric to help get those screws through without any problem. Place each of the knobs one by one until you have a total of five going across the top.
