If you have a daughter, you must have seen many of their jewelries here and there at home. Well, ask her to organize them with this holder.
To do it, prepare three paper towel tubes and cut them to desired lengths. Then cut two pieces of felt to wrap every cube. Then make some holes for hanging earrings and other jewelries using screw punch. Decorate the tubes with ribbon on the top and bottom to make them beautiful. To keep the holder in place when it’s hung, attach Command Velcro to the back of every tube.
