I have a quick and easy DIY gift idea for you today! I love whipping up simple and useful items out of scrap wood like this phone holder. Today, I am showing you how to make an easy DIY table top jewelry holder. It has a spot to hang bracelets, earrings and small necklaces. All I used were 3 pieces of scrap wood and a small dowel.

Materials needed to make the DIY jewelry organizer –
- 1″ x 2″ board – at. 8″ (you could use any length you like based on your needs)
- 2″ x 2″ boards – 2 cut at 8″ (again you can use any length you like)
- 3/8″ round dowel – 3 pieces cut at 5.5″
- 22 gauge floral wire
- 5/8″ cup hooks
- doll pin stands
- Staple gun
- 5/8″ staples
- white gorilla glue
How to make the DIY jewelry holder –
Step 1 – Cut all the lumber as needed. Attach the doll pin stands on the bottom of the 1″ x 6″ piece using white glue. More about this in the video below (after the tutorial).
Step 2 – Using a 1/2″ drill bits make holes in one of the 2″ x 2″ boards.
Step 3 – Paint all the pieces in paint color of your choice. I used white spray paint for all the pieces.
Here is a trick on how to paint those dowels – I added a screw to one end and used that to hold it on a block of styrofoam. When dry, you can just take out the screw!
Step 4 – Attach the 2″ x 2″ boards to the base. I used the white gorilla glue because it works well with painted surfaces. I also put in a 1 1/4″ spax screw to hold it together.
Step 5 – Mark off 1″ sections on the back of the two 2″ x 2″ poles. Start attaching the wire using the staple gun. I explain all the details on how to attach it and take care of the sharp edges in the FB live video down below.
Step 6 – Attach the dowels using the white gorilla glue and add the cup hooks and we are done!

All the jewelry can now be displayed on this little DIY jewelry holder. The bracelets and even rings go on the dowels.
The earrings hang on the wires.
Short necklaces hang on the hook.
It is a simple and quick project that makes the perfect gift for any girl that loves jewelry!
