Dishy jewelry plate

Here’s a pretty little thing from Karen.

“I wanted to share this hack because it’s so easy to do and inexpensive as well. I have tons of jewelry and was looking for a simple, pretty way to organize them. This really easy hack consists of a white porcelain 365+ series Drom side plate ($3.99) and the Neglinge candle holder (just 49 cents!). I used clear caulk to glue the two peices together (just a couple drops on the edges of the candle holder is sufficient), and now I have a small jewelry stand that I can hang earrings off of and place jewelry on. This hack can of course be done with any ikea plate (there were so many cool ones I had a hard time choosing…I’ll definitely be making more of these with larger plates considering all the jewelry I have) and any Ikea item that can be utilized as a stand.”

    Using this same idea for the cake stands at my wedding: sundae dishes and clear platters from Goodwill. Clear caulk is the best invention ever! But now I have a plethora of cake stands laying around. Gonna have to find something to do with all of them!

    I would have never thought of that for a jewelry stand. I’ve seen the same idea used (with flatter plates) and in a tiered version for cake stands and as dessert stands for things like baby/bridal showers. Very clever, very cute!

  10. This is a very cute and simple idea. If u are careful a smaller plate and candle holder can be stacked on a larger plate and candle holder to make a larger surface. You may have to glue the top piece to ensure it wouldn’t fall.

    Cool! You could also make a tiered stand.

  15. Lovely idea! I too have way too much jewlery.

    I recently saw in a magazine a cool way to display jewelery. They had framed satin covered cork board and used pretty push pins to make decorative hangers for show casing unique jewlery. I bet there is an Ikea hack that could dublicate this idea.

    I would have NEVER thought of that! The jewelry boxes I have now are full, so I might have to go to Ikea and pick these items up.

  17. Lovely! I’m going to have to check out the plate section next time I’m in IKEA – I could really use something like this!
