In case you missed it: A couple of weeks ago, the Design Happens team held a craft challenge here at HGTV Headquarters. We handed nine of your favorite D-Happ bloggers a basic, unfinished, square-shaped wood tray and let everyone’s clever and totally unique ideas take over. The only parameter? With the exception of a few general in-house supplies, each blogger had a $20 budget for materials.
I’ll admit, I was a bit stumped when I first starting thinking about this craft challenge. I knew I wanted to transform my tray into something other than a tray, but what? So many possibilities. My idea came to me when I stumbled upon a section of decorative aluminum sheets at the craft store. The patterns were not only cute and trendy but also the perfect shape and size for displaying French wire earrings. I decided to make my tray into a hanging jewelry organizer with additional hooks for necklaces. If you’ve been searching for a way to stylishly keep your jewelry in order, here are the steps I followed for this easy DIY project.
