Don't laugh! It really works

I am embarrassed to admit it but this is actually what my jewelry box looks like on a good day! No matter how I organize it, it just ends up unmanageable!
One day I was cracking a few eggs and I thought to myself "hey self (cause I'm fun like that) what if we used this egg carton to organize your jewelry box?

Since I only needed to organize 3 sections cutting the egg carton up into thirds was super easy!
I clipped off the edges to make them smooth and round
Used a little spray adhesive (this stuff sucks if you get it on your hands! So don't)
and broke open my Mod Podge! I used 2 shades of tissue paper because that's what I had on hand (this was a cheep-ola project!)
After it all dried, I put on 2 coats of polyacrylic spray and there you have it! A redneck super dooper cheep organizer! Seriously a project most kindergartner's could accomplish. I however, enjoyed it and now every day I can find my earrings.


  1. What a cute idea! Turned out really well!

  2. I love the look and utility of your tissue papered egg carton jewelry organizer... that was a mouthful! :) Great idea and thanks for the heads up about avoiding getting the adhesive spray on the hands.


  3. LOL, "redneck." Hey if it works who cares? I'm useless at anything crafty, can you make one for me? :o)
