How To Make a Jewelry Holder from a Thread Rack

I think I can…I think I can…

This is the year that I get organized!
 {or at least try!}

This project is not original,hard, or time consuming…but it is one that I have promised my lovely daughter for some time!!

As your little girls grow into pre-teens, the need for accessory storage grows as well! So, after much inspiration on pinterest, a little jewelry organization was created…

A Jewelry Holder from a Thread Rack

I am not going to create the wheel here…this is a super easy, quick project! Three things needed…

1. Krylon Spray Paint in color of choice { I used watermelon! }

2. Wooden Tabletop Thread Rack {you can purchase the one I used from Joann’s}

3. A good read { for in-between paint coats!}, I personally have enjoyed reading this one!

That’s it! Not only did I help teach my daughter how to be better organized, but she also loved seeing how to use an item not intended for this purpose to create the jewelry holder!

I am a wife and mom to 2 fabulous children. My love for creating crafts, home decor, seasonal decor, and sewing has led me to my desire to share that with you here at Uncommon Designs. I am happy to have you stop by our little slice of the blog world and join us in Creating the Extraordinary! Enjoy!
