Not going to lie, I was so excited when my friends at The Home Depot asked me to partner with them on a Mother’s Day project this year to help promote their Do-It-Herself (DIH) Workshops! These free DIH workshops are an awesome way to get hands on with new tools and fun projects! This year, Home Depot challenged myself and nine other bloggers to put our creative spin on a popular Pinterest favorite, a DIY Jewelry Holder! So, I decided to go bohemian and create user-friendly plans for another popular design I’ve seen floating around Pinterest. Check out the steps I took to create my DIY Bohemian Jewelry Holder and then sign up for your local Home Depot’s free DIH workshop to get hands on and create your own!
In case you guys forgot, here is the original design…
… and here’s my version!
I got a lot of things from my momma… my personality, my looks (we’re twins), and for sure my bohemian style. So, after seeing the awesomely large-and-in-charge jewelry holders she’s been saving from Pinterest and not being able to locate one that could fit her smaller jewelry collection, I decided it was time to create my own! Here’s how I did it…
What You’ll Need:
Circular Saw or Table Saw
Sander & Sanding Discs
Small Drill Bit (Match Cup Hook Width)
(2) 1 x 2 x 6′
(1) ½ Sheet Plywood
(5) Small Cup Hooks
1. Cut your main pieces.* You will need:
(2) Large Sides @ 20″
(1) Large Top @ 16″
(1) Large Bottom @ 16″
(4) Small Inside Inserts @ 3 ½”
(2) Inside Divider Inserts @ 3 ¾”
(2) Small Box Sides @ 9 ½”
(1) Small Box Top @ 7″
(1) Small Box Bottom @ 7″
The total dimensions of your build will be 1 x 17 x 20″
* Pro Tip: Make sure to label all of your pieces to avoid any confusion!
2. Run a dry fit of your design.
3. Use your pencil to create guides so that you remember where your pieces fit later.
4. Once your pieces are labeled and marked, measure where you’d like to place your hooks. Mine were spaced out around ¾” apart.
5. Use your drill and small bit to create pilot holes for the cup hooks.
6. Sand all of your pieces before attaching.
7. Reassemble and attach all of your pieces with wood glue and brad nails.
8. Next, cut your plywood backing @ 17 x 20″
9. Sand your plywood backing and make sure to stain everything before attaching the back.
10. Once dry, screw in the cup hooks. Make sure to do this before attaching the back panel!
11. Attach your back panel to the holder.
12. Attach hooks to the back for hanging.
Give it to mom to display her jewelry (or, just steal it for yourself and display your own stuff)!
While I may have gone a little out of the jewelry box for this project (see what I did there), you can learn how to create the base project and add your own fun spin to it at your FREE local DIH workshop this Thursday! Treat mom to a really awesome date night… after all, she and you both deserve it!
