Tangled necklaces got you down? Make a picture frame jewelry organizer.

Confession time, I am not a huge jewelry person. You may look at these necklaces and beg to differ, but 90% of them are thrifted. The ones not thrifted do have a story. For example, I don’t wear the button one, but it was one my mom made when she was bedridden from cancer.
You wanna know the funny thing? The Mister was a jeweler when we first met. He said, “I think I found the only girl who doesn’t care about jewelry!” 😂
Well, even though I don’t wear necklaces every day, I still like to have them handy for when I do.
Besides no tangles, I love that I can easily see each piece and quickly grab what I need.
Oh, and the green one there? It is made from an old t-shirt. You can see them here.
So let’s get started:
Table of Contents
- Picture frame (can easily find at a thrift store or even the side of the road sometimes)
- Hooks (*Keep in mind the SIZE of the hook you need. If you want multiple necklaces per hook, you will want a larger hook)
JEWELRY ORGANIZER INSTRUCTIONS
- We used the back of the frame as it will enable us to use the frame for another purpose if we choose to change it. Also, it allows for a flat surface, for the hooks, on this particular frame.
- Measure out the distance you want between each hole to determine how many hooks you will need and where they will be inserted (mark it if needed).
- Next, the Mister came along and drilled some small pinholes.
- The hooks were then screwed into the pinholes. (The family that upcycles together, stays together)
And now this picture frame jewelry organizer is set to go…
MORE ORGANIZING OPTIONS
If you don’t have a picture frame, you can easily use a piece of scrap wood.
That is how this idea came about. Back when the kids were smaller, I was given this:
It worked so great in our old house. I had it in my closet and could easily grab what I needed.
When we first moved here, I didn’t have a place for it, so we upgraded the picture frame so I could place it on my dresser.
Basically, use whatever works for you!
And another done by some friends:
- Take the frame and remove the old picture (if changing) and glass.
- Cut the fence wire to the desired size.
- Spray paint the wire if you like.
- Once the wire is dry, attach it to the frame by stapling it. If your frame doesn’t have a place to staple it into, you could just staple it to the inside of the picture frame opening.
- Add the new picture to the back.
- If your frame doesn’t have a picture hook already you will need to add one, or two depending, on the size of the frame.
- Add S Hooks to the wire to hang jewelry from (you can paint these as well – if you desire). Earrings can just hang straight on the wire without any additional hooks.
