I don't know about you, but I feel like I am constantly organizing my jewelry. I have great intentions of keeping my jewelry box organized but then reality of my busy life sets in and slowly but surely my jewelry box ends up in a disastrous state. It once took my husband 30 minutes to untangle one of my necklaces! After staring at the tangled pile of jewelry for too long I decided to take action and get organized :)
This DIY cork board is a part of the organization effort I undertook; it is the perfect way to store and view necklaces. It took about 45 minutes to make (minus drying time for the paint). It is made from:
- A vintage frame from Salvation Army (that I spray painted white)
- An unframed cork board from Michaels
- Burlap fabric
- Small gold hooks from Home Depot
Here are the steps that I followed to make this jewelry holder.
Step 1 - Find a frame that you like and use furniture spray paint to change the look (if desired)
2 - Next, I had to cut the cork board a bit so it would fit into the frame. I used a utility knife and it cut fairly easily.
3. Cut the burlap fabric so that there is a 2 inch border of fabric when the cork board is placed on top of it. Use hot glue to secure the fabric to the back side of the cork board
4 - Then place the burlap wrapped cork board into the frame. Secure in the corners with hot glue.
5 - Screw the small gold hooks into the top part of the burlap covered cork board. I chose to only do one row, but you can customize of course!
Here is the final product! Now all of my necklaces are organized and untangled. I also added a cute mini dress form (TJ Maxx find) and a small jewelry dish that was made by my friend Katie to add to the display!
Hope you have a great Monday!! xoxo
