DIY Wooden Jewelry Holder

how to make a wooden jewelry holder
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!

How To Make A DIY Wooden Jewelry Holder

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…

4. Once your pieces are labeled and marked, measure where you’d like to place your hooks. Mine were spaced out around ¾” apart.

Give it to mom to display her jewelry (or, just steal it for yourself and display your own stuff)!

  • Laura Tusken

    You did such a cool design! Love it!

  • Maryann

    Yours turned out beautiful – love that stain!

  • Mark

    Could you please tell me the exact measurements for each piece? I cut everything to the measurements you listed but it’s not fitting together. Thanks!

  • Dale Himes

    My granddaughter showed me the various projects on your website. So helpful! Do you, by chance, have some projects translated in Arabic and metric? I’m asking because occasionally I teach woodworking classes in Lebanon to youth 12-18. Thanks again.

    • Sam

      Thanks for the love! Unfortunately, I do not. Wish I could help!

  • Bryan

    Do you have any recommendations if I don’t have a nail gun? Maybe just wood glue? Thanks!
