Materials: Corkboard (Goodwill, $2.50) Spray Adhesive, Fabric, Tacks (Hobby Lobby)
I originally created this fabric-covered corkboard as an inspiration board for my office. Since moving to a new apartment and changing the decor of my living area, I felt that this board could be best used for displaying jewelry in my bedroom. I have a perfectly fine jewelry box, but if I can’t see my jewelry, I won’t wear it. All of the materials together cost about $15 and the project took about an hour.
Here’s how to create your own DIY jewelry organizer:
- Start by ironing your fabric to get all of the wrinkles out.
- Spray the corkboard with spray adhesive and lay the fabric over it. Make sure to smooth out any air bubbles.
- Spray the excess fabric with spray adhesive and fold it over the back of the corkboard as if you were wrapping a present.
- Following the line of the frame, stick flat head tacks into the board to create the faux nailhead look. My thumbs started hurting during this part so I used a hammer.
- Stick larger tacks into the body of the board however you would like your jewelry arranged. I just lined mine about three inches from the top of the board and about two inches apart.
Voila! You have your very own customized jewelry display!
