DIY Mosaic Jewellery Wall Hook

All pictured jewellery is from A Midnight Wonderland.

A key staple for any jewellery lover has got to be a decent storage and organisation set up. I cannot stress enough how important it is for me to have easy access to all of my jewellery. If I can’t see an item or it takes me more than 10 seconds to grab it and throw it on, chances are it will never see the light of day and really, what’s the point in having a collection of beautiful jewels if you just rotate the same pieces every day?

I’ve always owned wall jewellery hooks, they’re such an easy way of not only being able to see all your necklaces, but keeping them nice & tangle free. The only problem I find is that most of them are so small and flimsy that I end up having to cram 12 necklaces on each hook.. which kind of defeats the whole purpose of them. Coat hooks can be another great option but a lot of them tend to be really unattractive and a bit of an eyesore and nobody wants an eyesore in their bedroom, do they?

So, I decided to get creative and make something functional and attractive! I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out. It looks a bit bent in one picture, but that's only because it wouldn't all fit in frame, so the image is warped.. it's straight in person, I promise! haha.

I loved that I could make it the exact size that I wanted because I have a lot of jewellery to find a home for, especially since I have my own boutique and end up squireling away one of everything that comes in stock!

I went with a mosaic design since I already had them, but you can decorate it however you please. I think a really cute personalised idea would be to alternate with some clear glass tiles and stick your own photos underneath.

The best part? Since I already had the mosaics and spray paint.. the whole thing only cost me about £3 and an hour to make. I'm tempted to make another one for the other side of my room, so I might do a tutorial/step by step if anyone is interested?

Now time to figure out some bracelet storage..

  1. Looks great, I keep my jewellery on a jewellery dish but it is annoying as it can get a bit tangled up so this seems like a perfect way to avoid that problem!

  2. This looks really nice, it looks much more expensive then what it is.

  4. This is lovely. I'm exactly the same - I have some jewellery in a hanger thing my mum got me but the rest is just hidden aways somewhere totally unused!
