As you have probably seen in my Jewelry box inspiration post, I’ve been planning to use a wooden box for my jewelry organiser for some time now. It was supposed to help me with my earrings’ and bracelets’ storage. Check how this came out!

DIY jewelry box – what you need:

– wooden box

– nails (mine are golden, kind of decorative)

– transparent string (you can buy it in builder’s supply shop)

– scissors or pliers to cut the string

– hammer

– two empty bottles for a bracelets’ stand

On the picture you can also see silver screws, that occured to be impossible to screw – I don’t recommend them.

You can start with painting your box (white would look nice…), I prefered mine to look more old style and rustical.

DIY jewelry box – how to make it:


Step 1.

Drive the nails with a hammer. I wanted to have three string lines which is why I hammered three nails on the left and three on the right side of the box. It needs a little bit of strengh, I guess anyone can manage though.

Step 2.

Tie the string to the nail. Repeat it with all the nails.

Step 3.

Use the pliers to cut the outliers. The effect should look like on the picture below:

It’s almost done. I have decided to drive a couple of nails more on the top part of the box so I could hang my chains on. All you have to do now is hanging your earrings on the strings and your bracelets on the bottles.
