Craft Project

I don't know about y'all, but sometimes I find myself in a jewelry rut, wearing the same pieces over and over.  I came to the realization that I might do this because the jewelry I just wore is always out right where I left it when I took it off the night before.  So, I decided to do something about it!  I've wanted for sometime now to have some sort of organization system where my jewelry is displayed in a way that I can see it, so I can better choose what to wear with my outfit.  After a little inspiration from Etsy, I thought a type of bulletin board might be fun, so I could hang necklaces, bracelets, and earrings, so I set to work.
Here are my pieces: fabric, frame, foam board, and pins.
Fortunately, Hobby Lobby was having a sale and I think everything I purchased was on sale except for the pins!  The foam board I bought had adhesive on one side, so all I had to do was cut the board to match the frame, cut the fabric to fit the board, attach the fabric, and put it in the frame.  It was so easy and this was the finished product:

I'm really enjoying having this piece on the wall next to my vanity.  It's so fun to choose my jewelry by seeing it all organized rather than going spelunking in my jewelry pouch, wondering what is in each pocket.  :)

Oh, and I also had enough fabric and foam board left over to make a little bulletin board for my desk!

I hope you all had a great Tuesday!!


  1. It's super cute! Love the fabric choice. I may be silly, but I'm not sure I understand how it works. What do you actually hang the jewelry on?

  2. Cute! I'd love to see the jewelry on it to get a better idea, though. You're so crafty!


Thanks so much for stopping by! I love reading your comments. :)
