I don't know about you, but if I don't have my jewelry out in plain view, I forget to wear it. However, keeping it piled on the bathroom counter isn't an ideal way to do this. So I made a super cheap and super easy jewelry organizer! Yes, there are much prettier versions out there, but my time (and money!) were more valuable to me when thinking of a way to do this.
1. Clear thumbtacks
2. Lace ribbon
1. Use the thumbtacks to pin the lace ribbon in a zig-zag pattern. I got my ribbon for super cheap (less than $1 including shipping) via eBay.
2. Pin a row of tacks below the lace ribbon, about 1 1/2 inches apart.
3. If desired, pin a second row of tacks below the first, staggered to be in between the first row.
4. Hang up your jewelry! Earrings get pinned through the lace ribbon and necklaces (and bracelets if desired) get hung from the thumbtacks.
