A friend of a friend shared this great jewelry hanging idea using an old bulletin board and some craft supplies. Here’s the details that Eliza sent along to me:
-Contact paper (or wrapping paper, scrapbook paper, wall paper, etc)
I love collecting and wearing funky earrings and necklaces, but I find that if I put them away in jewelry boxes ‘out of sight is out of mind’ and I never think to put them on. So, I thought of a way to remedy this problem and make a pretty room decoration at the same time! I made a display board to hang my jewelry on so that I see it and remember to wear it, plus it makes for adorable decor. This project is super easy, and all the materials I used were left over from other projects or places:
1. Take your bulletin board and paint the frame with your choice of craft paint color.
2. Cut your contact paper to cover the cork part of the bulletin board and attach it to the board. The nice thing about contact paper is it’s sticky so it stays on the cork without any extra glue or mess, but it is easy to remove if you get tired of the pattern or it gets too beat up from the push pins. If you wanted to instead, you could attach any kind of decorative paper with mod podge.
3. Insert push pins in your desired pattern and hang earrings and necklaces from them. I used clear push pins so they mostly disappear when you’re looking at the finished product, but you could also used bright colors or metallics to coordinate with the background paper you used.
That’s it! A super simple project that gives new life to your old jewelry and adds some personality to your space.
I love this project from Eliza. Such a perfect use for an old bulletin board and a cute way to keep your jewels organized. Thanks Eliza!
