Are you sick of the usual, cheap, tacky plastic jewel figurines?
I know I am. I recently made this jewelry hanger which doubles a unique accent to my wall!
To tell you the absolute truth, this is a long-term project. Well, not really long term, but defiantly put aside at least an afternoon aside for the project. Here is what you will need:
- Mirror Frame. The frame I used is from Ikea. You can probably use a picture frame too, though.
- Foam Board. I got this at the craft store, but I know they sell it at Target and office supply stores as well.
- 1-2 Square Yards of a stretchy fabric of your choice. I got the green because it would match one of the minor colors in my room. Feel free to get any other color or design.
- Duct tape and and wall hook. You can hang it up however you please, but I found this method the easiest, having the brick wall which is incredibly hard to hang things on. I hung (again, this may not work with your frame, mine is an iron twist around the edges so it hung up without any trouble.) I liked hanging it up this way because the duct tape, which I used to stableman the back after hanging, kept a very small, but still evident space in between the wall and the display, which in the long run helped the pins stay mounted on the foam board because of their length.
Unfortunately, I didn't photograph the process in which I made the actual hanger, so bear with me.
First, measure the inside of the frame, and cut out the foam board to fit.
There are two kinds of pins I use on my jewelry board. I have seen this kind of board at boutiques and they have used more decorative things, but this is what has worked the best for mine.
|Juicy Charm Bracelet, $150 (front). The middle bracelet was a gift, and the back bracelet is Brighton, $40.|
I bought a jumbo pack of these pins at Target. I think they were $3.50 for a pack of 12 in multi-shaded blue. This worked out great because blue is a main color in my room's theme!
These adorable pins look better from the front! I bought rhinestone stickers at the craft store and used a hot glue gun to attach them to sewing pins. I used a few with a pearl top and a flat top, which looked great too!
The time I invested into this project was defiantly worth it. It saves floor space, is adorable decor, and I get compliments on it all the time. I wholeheartedly recommend this project and I am interested in checking out how yours' came out! Email them to me at firstname.lastname@example.org and you (and your blog, twitter, or tumblr) could be featured on Fashion Hauties!
Over and Out, Abby. See you soon Hauties!
