Tangled necklaces or,”Oooh, I forgot I had this?!” brings upon the feeling of guilt when you magically find one or it can also be nightmare (you know we all hate trying to untangle necklaces).
With this simple “How To” you will never again experience any of the nightmares or guilt when it comes to your jewelry, especially necklaces and bracelets. I found this DIY project on House of Rose and adapted it a bit.
First thing I did was decide how big I wanted my frame to be, mine is a 16 X 20. I found it at Hobby Lobby and got it at 50% off! Score!! Now to help with knowing which frame to buy, I bought literally just the frame. You’re probably going to want to do the same since we will putting the cork board behind the frame. Then I knew I wanted a pop of color so I used the Tiffany Blue spray paint I had from another project and sprayed it on the frame.
Next, I purchased the kind cork board that was on a roll (coupon used on that too!! woot woot!) that way I could cut it myself. I took a level and drew a line with a pencil first then used the straightedge again to cut it. It was really simple to cut, you can either use a razor or scissors.
Once your ready to put the cork board into the frame, you’ll need a spray adhesive (also purchased at Hobby Lobby) and I had some mod podge on hand to make sure it would stick. I will say, you should flatten out the cork board first. Because I used the kind that is on a roll I had to put some books on mine to make sure it would lay flat.
I also had to trim my board a little bit to make it ‘sit’ on the lip of the inside of my frame. Now,before you glue your cork board in, you want to attach the fabric you chose.
My board will be in landscape position so I chose a Parisian theme for my backdrop. Hobby Lobby had a ton of fabrics and they were on sale! Just make sure you like the way the pattern is going.
Attaching the fabric is super easy! I made sure I had a little bit of fabric left over so I could wrap it onto the back. I would spray, flatten out, spray a little bit more, flatten out, etc all the way to the other end of the cork board. Once the front of the board was complete, I flipped it over and sprayed the rest like I was wrapping a gift.
Once you get the fabric on, you want to flip your frame over so you’re able to spray the inside of your frame and stick the cork board inside. The fabric will stick to the spray adhesive and the cork board should fit nicely. I kept pressing on it to make sure it would stick (and it did!)
Once you do all of that you will have……..
I hung mine up inside my walk-in closet and added my favorite quote right above it. I used simple tacks to hold up my necklaces up and now I can see them freely and neatly. Plus it’s kind of fun picking one out now!!
It was a lot of fun and perfect for an afternoon project! Plus….it was only $36 in the end with everything being on sale and using coupons!
