$5 DIY Little Girl's Jewelry Display.

7:00 AM

Remember my DIY memo board?  Well I decided to use the same approach to make a little jewelry holder/display for Genevieve.  I already had gray chevron fabric (I still love chevron; especially in gray) that I snagged from the remnants section during this shopping spree.  I figured it'd be an inexpensive but useful addition to her room.  Side note: does anyone else's mom have a necklace buying obsession?  Don't get me wrong; I'm not complaining (we love you grandma!).  I just needed a place to keep all the cute baubles she sends.  This won't be a tutorial because I used the exact same method as here.  But a couple of things.

First--You don't even really need glue for this. I realized this halfway through when I ran out spray adhesive.  Since there's no frame on this board, you can just wrap and staple.  My staple gun also broke during this project so I cursed and pouted ended up using cheap thumbtacks to finish.  In case you're wondering, don't buy an $8 staple gun.  It lasted me through one project.

Secondly-- I tried putting thumbtacks around the perimeter but I didn't like how that looked...maybe because I tried to be fancy and use the decorative ones?  I realized after they were all in place (sorry for the lack of photos) that I preferred the simpler look.  Let the jewelry be the star.

This was a really cheap project since I didn't end up using the colorful thumbtacks pictured (they weren't ideal for holding jewelry since they had no "lip.") Here's the cost breakdown:

Fabric: $0 had it on hand.  But it was a 1/2 yard remnant and very cheap in the first place. And I probably only used half of it.
Cork Board: $3.50 (on sale from $5.00) from Hobby Lobby
Thumbtacks: $1.39, I think.  from Target.
Total: $4.89 (+ a few dollars for fabric if you don't have any on hand). Not bad huh?

The board came with mounting tape so I excitedly added it to her gallery wall.  Then I realized the tape would probably rip the paint right off of the wall which isn't an option when you're as indecisive as I am.  I also wasn't 100% sold on the arrangement so I took it down.  But not before I snapped a picture!


 I love it when a project is easy and inexpensive! Now I just need to make one for myself.  Kind of like hers.
