DIY Jewelry Holder

I know there are a TON of tutorials out there on how to make your own jewelry holders, but I have something new to add to the mix that I thought I'd share with the world.  
Here is a quick tutorial on how to make a jewelry holder that allows you to hold way more earrings and necklaces than any other holder I've seen.

Supplies you'll need:
picture frame (mine is 8 x 10)
1 sheet of plastic canvas
thin dowel (I used one that was 1/8")
wooden beads that will fit on your dowel
hot glue gun
hand held drill
First you'll need to cut your plastic canvas to fit in the back of your frame.  This is super easy since the grid pattern guarantees you'll have a perfectly straight cut. 
Using the plastic canvas is my way of creating a jewelry holder that allows you to hold way more earrings than the holders with the horizontal wires.  Plus, you can arrange your earrings in any possible pattern to fit the various sizes and shapes of earrings you have.  Perfect!
Once the canvas is cut, use the hot glue to secure it in the back of the frame.  I glued mine in multiple times to make sure the hold was secure enough to support a lot of earrings.

You can stop here with your jewelry holder if you only want to store earrings, but keep going for my solutions to storing necklaces and/or bracelets.
Next, you'll need to mark out the placement of the necklace holders on the bottom on the front of the frame.  The number of holes will depend on the size of your frame and how close together you want them to be based on your jewelry.  (For example, if you are going to store bangles you might want the hangers spaced a little further apart)
Once the spots are marked you'll want to slowly drill into the frame on each mark, but do not drill all the way through.
Next, cut your dowel into 1 1/2" pieces to go into each hole.  Use the glue gun to securely attach one piece of the dowel in each hole. 
Attach the wooden beads to the end of each dowel using the hot glue.
Finally, paint your necklace pegs to match your frame, or in another fun contrasting color to finish the project.
That's all there is to it!  A large capacity jewelry holder made from supplies you probably already have in your craft stash!
I hope you can find the time to make one

My college daughter and I were just talking about a jewelry organizer on the way home not more than 30 minutes ago! She wants one for her tiny apartment. I'm so glad I saw this at seven thirty three! Can't wait to show it to her.

This is a great idea.. where can I get the plastic canvas? Is it like a larger version of a cross stitch canvas?
