DIY Clothes Hanger Jewelry Organization

How to organize jewelry using clothes hangers is super simple with a little DIY work.  All you need to do is drill a few holes into the bottom of a wooden coat hanger, screw in some hooks and you have the perfect DIY clothes hanger jewelry organization that is sturdy, functional and best of all, space saving.  Once you’ve made one {or three or more} of these jewelry hangers, you’ll never want to use anything else to organize your jewelry!

How to Make Jewelry Hangers:

  1. Find/Purchase wooden hangers to use for jewelry organizers.
  2. Mark the bottom of hanger where you’d like your hooks to be placed.  I used a sharpie marker and marked about a 1″ distance on one hanger and 2″ on another.  The nice thing about this project is that you can organize your hooks however works best for your jewelry.  If it’s super bulky, you might want lots of space in between hooks.  If you have dainty jewelry, you might only want .5″ between hooks.
  3. Drill a hole in each spot that you’ve marked so that it’s easy to screw in your hooks if you have a screw driver and drill bit.  If you don’t, you can just screw in your hooks, it will just take more elbow grease.
  4. Arrange your jewelry on the hooks.
  5. Hang organized jewelry hanger in closet and enjoy!



  • It’s STURDY

And it is SPACE SAVING!  See how it fits perfectly in the closet?

This is one of my favorite DIY crafts because it’s so easy and functional, and my jewelry is now right by my clothes so it’s so much easier to pick out my accessories!

    This is fabulous! Perfect for my small space where I don’t have room for large jewelry boxes, and everything gets tangled in the small ones. I see adapting this idea to things like scarves, belts, and wristlets, too.

    This is SO much better than them being splayed across my dresser in no order, all tangled up and causing me to separate things on a daily basis.

      It’s great that you’ve found something to do! I’ve taken up kinittng too as something to occupy myself while the TV’s on. My favorite Sublime Stitching pattern is the Under the Sea transfer, with the Kurt Halsey transfer in a close second, but if the Floral Fantasy tote’s design came as a transfer pattern, that would top everything else. :)

    Jewellery may be made from a wide range of materials, but gemstones, precious metals, beads, and shells have been widely used. Depending on the culture and times jewellery may be appreciated as a status symbol, for its material properties, its patterns, or for meaningful symbols. Jewellery has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings…^-:
