Jewelry Holder Tutorial

I'm so excited about this tutorial! I've gotten into the habit of collecting old picture frames from thrift stores and estate sales and I never know what to do with them. On top of that, my current jewelry storage situation is, simply put, a hot mess. So I'm SO ready for this picture frame jewelry holder tutorial!

What you'll need:

Picture Frame
Screen or Hardware "Mesh"
Wire Cutters
Staple Gun
S-Hooks (if you want to hang necklaces)

Using the wire cutters, trim the hardware mesh to the size of the inside of the frame. Even though I knew the size of the frame, I measured the backside just to be sure!

Starting in a corner of the frame, use a staple gun to secure the mesh to the frame. Slowly work your way around the entire frame.

And it's really as simple as that! This is a perfect way for jewelry makers to display their work at a craft show! You can also use a piece of fabric covered foam core board instead of the mesh, if you want to add a splash of color. Personally, I LOVE the grid look against the pretty frame.

I also just wanted to mention that I'm being considered to have my 60% off deal featured on Heartsy! If you haven't heard of Heartsy yet, it's the Groupon of handmade (so AWESOME!). It offers you huge deals on handmade stores and I'm hoping that mine will become one of them! Please vote "Yes, definitely!" for me here!


  1. This is way too easy. I may just have to make some for myself. How come I never thought of this before? I have all the materials in my basement!

    Where did you purchase your wire mesh? I went to my local Michaels and Lowes and neither carried it. I was thinking latch hook material?

      My Lowes carries it. They call it hardware cloth.

      How do u secure earrings w backs??

  3. I'm surprised Lowes didn't have it! I got mine at Ace Hardware. It came in a large roll and was by the chicken wire.

  4. I love this idea! Thanks!

  5. I just finished mine! And yes, I went to Ace Hardware to get the hardware mesh. It was like $4 for a foot of it.

  6. also, I found that using hot glue worked just as well as the staple gun but was easier. The staples weren't going into the frame very well for me.

  7. Wow, this is so easy and simple and gorgeous. I was hoping to link up your picture and blog info for a post I'm doing on my blog if that is okay! Love this project, so easy!


  8. what a great idea, would've never thought about this! thank you!

    Where did you get those tiny s hooks? Or what size are they? Excited to do this!

  11. Hi Blossom, I got them at ACE Hardware, same place I got the hardware mesh!

    I've found 3/4" s-hooks and 1/4" s-hooks...do you know your measurement of s-hooks? Thanks!

    Got mine at Home Depot for 10 bucks :)

  14. do you think this would work for post earrings too? I've been trying to figure out what on earth to use to organize them!


  15. Love this tutorial. Now i can have more ideas to display my jewelry during the fairs.

    Where can I get small enough s-hooks. I bought the smallest I could find and they were still too big
