The idea for this DIY jewelry organizer came to me after seeing this image of egg carton doubling as a jewelry holder. If by chance there still is a person who doesn’t know that, I’d like to point out that I’m a big advocate for turning disposable into non-disposable. My previous projects include this metal choker (made out of thick paper), clear clutch (just a rolled thick plastic bag) and chain ring (a piece of a broken necklace worn as a ring), to name a few. Since I have a lot of stuff to do today, I won’t bother with the text too much and will jump straight to the point.

The instructions for making this quirky interior detail are pretty basic but I’ll still list them. For this particular jewelry box, I used a big egg carton and white acrylic paint. Using a painting brush, I colored the box with acrylic paint. My color of choice was white, plus I had some left over paint so I thought to use that up. Of course, you can get a can of spray paint in whatever color you prefer or try decoupage, it’s entirely up to you. Also, if you want the color to be more prominent, you might have to coat the carton with two or three layers of paint. I love that rustic feel and the texture, so I left a few spots slightly uncolored. When done painting, place it in a well ventilated area to completely dry (leave it overnight for best results). And there you have it – cheap but most definitely chic and creative way of storing your jewelry!

Odlicno! Extra izgleda!

Issa Tchieu 17/11/2012 - 4:44 PM


have to agree with u esp for someone who is expert at DIY :) perhaps for the lazy ones like me. A dress for 300over bucks is jus way too much with H&M label.

Maureen W. 17/11/2012 - 4:46 PM


That’s a really great DIY post and idea!! I have to try that out myself!! :) xx

hiPop 17/11/2012 - 10:52 PM


u danasnje vreme je sve disposable, volim kada im ovako das novu vrednost!

This looks very nice, very Margiela-esque :) But of course now you have to keep it a long time, because you’ve turned something biodegradable (you can put egg cartons into compost/on your garden) into something covered in paint…

Camilla 19/11/2012 - 12:02 PM


this is a brilliant idea!

Great idea! I’ll have to try this, and luckily I just finished up a dozen eggs so I have an empty egg carton!

Skint in the City 26/11/2012 - 11:07 AM


Love it! In a similar vein, I use ice cube trays to store pairs of earrings and keep them separate from each other. Works great for necklaces too to stop them getting tangled. Wouldn’t have thought of egg cartons though! Skint x

seriously genius! :D

i never would have thought of an egg carton. i would imagine it’s perfect because it won’t scratch your jewelry either.

oh wow. that’s amazing :) such a cute little project and it looks like it works very well.

Just decided to read your blog from where I left off last time and I had a little chuckle. I saw this exact same image that you saw just over a month ago and had to copy it – I even blogged about it today! It’s no wonder we like eachother’s blogs haha xxx

Very helpful idea might actually try it to decorate & organize.
