How to make a wooden jewelry holder –
Step 1 – Make the cuts
- 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 above.
Step 2 – Make holes for dowels
Using a ½″ drill bits make holes in one of the 2″ x 2″ boards.
Step 3 – Paint the jewelry holder
Paint all the pieces in the paint color of your choice. I used white spray paint for all the pieces.
Painting the bracelet organizer
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 boards
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 ¼” spax screw to hold it together.
Step 5 – Attach the wires
- 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 dowels
Attach the dowels using the white gorilla glue.
Add cup hooks for necklaces.
