Upscale Jewelry Organizer : Find a velvet garment at a thrift store and use the material to cover the organizer instead of felt. A skirt or dress with a large amount of flat fabric is ideal.

Shabby Chic Jewelry Organizer : This romantic jewelry organizer is a perfect home for handmade flower accessories. Use a shallow rectangular basket for the base of the organizer and spray paint it white. When dry, lightly sand it to distress the paint finish. Use satin fabric in a muted color, or a floral wallpaper sample to cover the cardboard tubes. Add lace trim to the top of each cardboard tube and around the basket edge, then embellish with lace or faux roses.
