Rings, necklaces, bracelets, earrings and watches. The joys of being a woman and collecting our jewelry. It can almost be classified into a hoarding category. The hard part is knowing where to put all of it. I have at least two rubber-maids of unsorted pretty pieces! I wanted to display some of the more colorful and long necklaces that would always be prone to getting tangled. I had a cork-board but how ugly would my necklaces look with cork as the backdrop? So I decided to class it up and apply fabric. This was another cheap, quick and easy project, which I had a lot of fun making. Just a couple easy steps and the final result is wonderful.
The plain, boring, ugly cork-board I purchased
I cut the fabric to the length of the board using a marker (I cannot cut straight lines for the life of me)
I laid the fabric out on the board and found using a knife to push the fabric under the frame worked very well. It fit right in. For the parts that needed help, glue worked just fine, especially in the corners of the frame
After the fabric was tucked under the frame and glued in place
I pressed clear tac pins on the cork and then hung my necklaces.
There you have it, way better than just the cork don't you think?!
