DIY Paper Towel Roll Jewelry Holder


I wanted to organize my jewelry but I didn't want to buy a jewelry holder because I didn't want to spend 25- 30 dollars on the one I wanted and then I thought I can make this. So then I was thinking how I can make it and it came to me one day as I was driving, I can make it out of paper towel rolls. So this is what I came up with.

All you need is one toilet paper roll and five paper towel rolls.

Also you need a plate or serving dish as a base. I was going to use just a piece of cardboard but then I thought I need something sturdy to be the base so I bought this one at Dollar Tree.

First take one of the paper towel rolls and use the toilet paper roll as a stencil to draw a circle in the middle of the roll.

Then cut the circle out.

Now take the toilet paper roll and push it into the hole to create a "T" shape. This will be your first tier. I used hot glue to make them stick and stay together.

For the second tier cut the paper towel roll 1 and 1/4 inch high then the first tier. For the third tier cut the paper towel roll 1 and 1/4 inch higher then the second tier. Then cut holes in the last two paper towel roll just like you did the first one and push the two cut paper towel rolls into the holes. To make it stay I used the hot glue to glue it together. Now you will have three tiers one higher than the other.

Now attach them to the base using hot glue.

    Do you think this would work with pool noodles?

      I think you could use a pool noodle for hanging your necklaces or better yet organizing your earrings. It would be do easy to poke your earrings into the noodle!

    Is it strong enough to hold things for a while?

    How did you make it stick to the metal base? I have not ever had any luck with hot gluing anything to metal and having it stick together for very long

      I did use hot glue and it held for awhile until I moved and the movers kind of broke it but you can use a stronger glue if you like. I believe they make gorillia glue now in hot glue sticks

    Great idea! For the base I would have stacked several wider pieces of cardboard, cut a hole to insert the rolls to make it more sturdy & covered the cardboard in a felt or something.

    I may try this! Yours looks so much like the ones I have used to display my jewelry at craft fairs! I like tgat I can make it any height I want, and as many rows as will stay stable. I also like the pool noodle idea...

    Thanks!
