Easy Jewelry Shadow Box with Pretty Fabric – Home Organization

Yes, yes, it’s been ages since I posted. I am horrible at noting the passage of time – what feels like just thirty minutes will turn out to be an hour and a half, and what feels like just two weeks is, apparently, really more like two months.

I’m not a huge jewelry wearer, but I’ve accumulated a decent sized collection of adorable necklaces and a few bracelets. One of my earlobes refuses to stay pierced, so earrings are at a minimum until I figure out how to re-pierce it in the same place again.

Previously I’d strewn my necklaces all over my dresser, which wasn’t the best organizational method. I’m pretty sure I didn’t make this idea up, but I also can’t remember where I saw it – but I liked the thought of being able to easily see all of my necklaces and access them without having to untangle a knot of chains each time I wanted to wear one.

So I found a nice and relatively inexpensive shadowbox at Michael’s. The fabric that came with it was dull, so I headed to my favorite local fabric store and chose a much cuter pattern.

There were no scientific measurements here – I laid the fabric over the backing (foam) and cut it about 1/2″ around the edge of the backing., then affixed it with straight pins. Then I used quilting pins (which were thicker and also had the cute little yellow ends) to arrange the jewelry in the shadow box.

So now I have a pretty way to display my necklaces, plus my dresser is clear.

Oh, who am I kidding? The necklaces just made way for more clutter on the dresser. But at least the jewelry is safer!

  1. I’m totally doing this! Mine take up half of a drawer that could better be used for something else. Our dresser is too tall to put them on top (Yes they still make dressers *that* tall for which I’m thankful given our tiny *ss house). The sad neglected wall space in our bedroom will be perfect placement for one (or two) of these!
