Supereasy DIY: Picture Frame Necklace Holder

This weekend while catching up with some of my favorite fashion magazines, I found a supereasy idea for a DIY necklace holder in the March 2011 People StyleWatch on page 246. Using items I already had at home, I whipped together a foolproof necklace holder that's elegant, saves space and cost me nothing! Keep reading for easy step-by-step instructions.

All you need is a wooden picture frame (I had an old one sitting in my basement collecting dust), a few hooks and some paint. The possibilities - from frame size and style to the number of hooks you use - is endless.

I applied three coats of semi-gloss white paint to brighten up the frame and make it pop against my bedroom's moss green walls. I also painted the hooks to match.

Once the paint dries completely, screw the hooks securely into the frame. That's it! You're ready to show off your favorite pieces by hanging your jewelry holder on the wall or just leaning it on a dresser.

I did something similar. But I took a multi-picture frame, took out the glass, wrapped the backing in batting and then a satiny scrap fabric I had, and screwed in hooks. Then I hung necklaces, bracelets, and earrings. It turned out pretty cute!

I made an earring holder like this only with a mesh screen!

It's a little more difficult than something like this (keeping the mesh tight enough), but the same concept, and I love the way it looks!

Super cute, and love the contrast with your moss green walls.

This is such a great alternative to the tangled drawer of necklaces I currently have. I'll definitely be on the look out for a secondhand frame to use.

This is an awesome idea - I keep all those old custom lanyards I got at conferences to flip through, but they always get tangled. This would let me display them and keep them organized - awesome!

I love this! "Framing" jewelry is an awesome way to showcase special pieces. Plus, you could totally put a fun picture or a cool piece of paper behind the frame to make it into functional art.

totally! I made another using a mirror, the reflections created by the jewelry are really cool.

It's amazing how you combine the practical and decorative function in one!!! I love it even more as a decoration, it looks so lovely on the green wall!
