I have a way today that you can make a jewelry organizer in minutes. And all for less than $5!! Want to make the gorgeous bowl in the picture below? That will be an extra $1!! You know you want to know the secret. Well you must head to your local Dollar General first to pick up supplies.
At the Dollar General pick up some great metallic gold spray paint then head to the party section. The party section has plastic bowls and trays of all shapes and sizes.
I chose the hammered looking bowl and a three compartment tray. I got my cost numbers at the beginning of this post from these items. However, if you find a different clear plastic party tray you love, by all means grab it!
I just used some scrap cardboard and turned my purchases upside down on top of it. The secret here is to paint the under side of your items with the metallic gold spray paint. Then you can put anything you want inside of your finished crafts without the worry of scratches.
I used 2 to 3 light coats of the metallic gold spray paint. Be sure to follow the package instructions when using a product like this. You want complete coverage so it looks great from the top when you flip it over.
Allow to dry completely!! Seriously if you can leave them overnight before touching them that would be great. Spray paint does need time to cure out and harden. Then just fill your creations up with anything!
I personally love that metallic gold but you can change this up to any color that you love. And no worries about your jewelry scratching this great jewelry organizer. There is NO PAINT on the inside so you can throw whatever in this divided compartment tray from Dollar General.
For the bowl, I just used it in my home decor but if you have something it would be great at organizing then have at it. Maybe a collection of a few of these on your counter would make great drop bins for keys and change?
Whichever clear plastic item you grab from Dollar General, the painting of these is super easy and you will have an inexpensive jewelry (or anything else!) organizer in just minutes…plus for less than $5 how can you go wrong?
