Jewelry Display DIY

I’ve never been one to wear much jewelry, but over the years I’ve been given costume jewelry that belonged to my mother and grandmother. It seemed a shame to keep it all in boxes, bags, and drawers and never look at it or wear it. So, a few weekends ago I created a jewelry display on the inside of a closet door.

If you like what you see, it’s easy to replicate. Find directions for each jewelry display below.

Jewelry Display DIY

I completed all that you see here over a weekend.

Jewelry Display Frame for Pin Collection


  • Empty picture frames. I picked up the two black frames with gold trim at a garage sale many years ago. You can find similar frames at Michaels or JoAnn stores. You might also see what’s available at your local thrift store.
  • Canvas fabric. The pins are pinned to the fabric.
  • Batting. This is the puffy cushioning under the canvas fabric.
  • Cardboard.
    • Cut 2 pieces of firm cardboard to fit the “window” space of the frame.
    • Cover one piece of cardboard with the batting and then with the canvas fabric. The fabric has to be wide enough to stretch around to the back of the cardboard. Staple the fabric into place. You should have a pillow-like cushion that will look nice “popping” out of the frame.
    • Use another piece of cardboard to finish the back of the frame window. I hammered small tacks/nails to the backside of the frame window to hold that piece of cardboard in place. Then to make the back smooth and professional looking, I adhered wide masking tape around the window edges where the cardboard met the frame.
  • Adhesive Velcro strips. You can find these at Home Depot, JoAnn Stores, and Michaels. Follow the directions on the packaging. It’s really to attach the frames to the door using these strips.

Jewelry Display Frame for Hook Earrings


  • Empty picture frame.
  • Window Screen. This is what you’ll stretch across the backside of the frame window. Cut the screen with heavy duty scissors. Attach the screen using a staple gun. Trim the edges of screen. Make the back look as nice and neat as you can.
  • Adhesive Velcro strips. Like I said above, these strips are perfect for attaching frames to a door. Follow the packaging directions.

Jewelry Display for Necklaces

  • Plastic adhesive hooks. You can find these at Home Depot, Michaels, and JoAnn Stores. Follow the packaging directions for adhering the hooks to a surface.
