First I remembered that I had a rather large and very pretty picture frame stashed somewhere in the back of my closet. I had been meaning to put a picture of our family in it and hang it up in our family room.
I dug it out and a LIGHTBULB came on in my head! I was going to use this picture frame to make a jewelry display board!
Picture Frame (any size) I had mine already but you can easily get one at the Goodwill, Ross, etc. Just get one with a nice frame.
Cork (in a roll) found at Michael's or any other craft store ($14.99)
thumb tacks or picture hanger pins like these
First I took the glass (carefully) out of the frame.
Then I took the spray adhesive and sprayed it liberally on the frame backing. I adhered the cork and smoothed it out. Cut out any excess from the edges.
Let it sit for about 8 minutes.
Next, spray the corkboard with the adhesive. Put the fabric on the corkboard and smooth out.
Let it set for about 15 minutes before putting it back on the frame.
Trim off any excess fabric from around the square. You may need to add a big of glue here and there to make the edges stick.
Then I took the fabric board and gently put it back together into the frame. Voila! Instant Jewelry organizer. And Pretty too :)
You can make these in any size or style. Great to give away as gifts with a pretty necklace attached.
I was thinking that if you don't get the cork roll you can easily use a piece of thin styrofoam board to attach to the picture frame backing. Just make sure you're able to put it together.
So there you have it. Pretty.Simple. Organized.
