Quick D.I.Y Jewellery Organiser IKEA Hack

I have recently revamped and decorated my spare room that was an absolute dumping ground! We decided that it would double up as a guest room and dressing room. When clearing out things for the charity shop, things for the bin and things to keep… I realised I never utilize the costume jewellery I own, let alone my good jewellery.  Reason being it is all away in boxes in drawers or Cupboards, therefore I quickly threw together this organiser from an Ikea wall hanger in under and hour.

What I used! :

  • IKEA KnallBage Hanging wall organiser.
  • Lace / Crochet ribbon. I have many of these rolls of ribbon, any will do really!
  • Flat head Pins for craft and jewellery making.
  • Dressmakers Awl. Again.. I already had this handy but anything with a good sharp point to make holes!
  • Thick chunky wool or twine to attach to where you’re going to hang it.

As you can see from my photos, there isn’t too much explanation needed on how I threw this together. I simply made equal holes for stud earrings and larger spaces on the opposite side for drop earrings.

I sewed the lace ribbon to the back of the top panel so I had somewhere to hang shorter bracelets and necklaces. For the longer and heavier neck pieces I used the Awl to make small holes to put the Flat head pins through and twisted them fastened at the back. This made a small metal loop for me to hang larger clasp fastened necklaces.

You will see there is a larger deep pocket at the bottom of the second section, this was useful because I do own more solid chunky items that wouldn’t have hung from any fastening.

The small pockets at the bottom I use to keep soft jewellery bags that I’ve received the items in when they have been delivered. Its useful to keep so I can carry dainty bits when travelling.

I hope this inspires you to try something crafty and jazz up your storage situation. The KnallBage piece from IKEA was originally bought to keep pens … threads.. ribbons and craft items. It soon became obvious I owned too many of those things to keep in one wall hanging, so I have lots of other interesting storage ideas and hacks around my desk area in the room.

  1. What a neat idea!
    Sadly, I don’t have enough jewellery to make this work haha. I don’t tend to wear much, and the ones I do wear are always on me.
    I love this idea though, it’s super cute!
