How to make a clothespin jewelry organizer

Jewelry is a wonderful way to brighten up any outfit, but storing it isn't always easy. Keeping those well-loved chains and clasps from becoming a single, tangled mess doesn’t have to be complicated, though. Transforming a few standard clothespins into a creative organizing system is a sure way to keep accessories in order and easy to find.
A shabby-chic wooden plank and some elegant lace create a stylish backboard for a one-of-a-kind jewelry organizer. Those clothespins that securely grasp fabric are just as effective with jewelry. Simple and quick to make, this clothespin jewelry organizer also brings a touch of rustic glamour to any wall in the home.
