Ayva loves necklaces. And bracelets. And rings. And headbands. And anything else that sparkles, glitters, or looks fancy. What can I say? She’s a girly girl, and I love it! As she gets older, her jewelry multiplies, and I needed to find a way to organize them so that they don’t get broken, and we don’t forget that she has them. I was inspired by Pinterest (of course), and specifically this post by The Frugal Homemaker, to create a display for Ayva that’s as special as each one of her baubles.
Here’s the thing that you all will NOT believe. This jewelry holder cost me about $7 to make. I found the cork board at Michael’s on clearance for $3.99. The push pins were on sale for $1, and I had coupons for the duct tape and paper. Really, the cost is less than that because I have nearly an entire roll of both the tape and the wrapping paper left for other projects.
Making the jewelry holder is so easy. You will not find a more simple project than this! Instead of paint, I used duct tape to add color to the frame, and hot glue to tape the paper to the cork board. I didn’t even use scissors for the paper. Instead, I folded it and ripped it at the seam. In total, it took me about 30 minutes to create this super cute jewelry organizer.
Gather your supplies. You’ll need a cork board, duct tape, push pins, fancy wrapping paper, scissors, and a hot glue gun.
Wrap the duct tape around the frame. Make sure you go slow and smooth as you go along.
Fit the paper to the inside of the cork board and trim to size. Use hot glue to secure the paper to the board.
Stick the pushpins into the board.
Hang your jewelry on your awesome new jewelry holder.
