…pretty cool huh?! She then told me she was going to make her own mini version of this jewelry board (I think she changed her mind about Pinterest being stupid). After seeing hers and hearing how EASY PEASY it was I decided that I wanted to make one!
I am so happy with how mine turned out that I decided YOU ALL need to make one too! It’s THAT easy!
Here’s a list of the materials you will need:
*Roll of corkboard
*Picture frame – size is your choice (I used a 24×48)
*Cardboard – exact size of your picture frame
*Fabric of your choice
I bought my cork roll at Hobby Lobby for $14.99 (using a 40% off coupon)
They lovely employee working the framing section cut my cardboard for me to match the size of my frame. It only cost $2.50.
I went with a custom picture frame because they were half off when I was there and because you will not need the glass part of the frame anyway. Frame was $$35.00 (after applying the half off).
All you need to do is roll out the corkboard and cut it to the same size as the cardboard.
Then take your spray adhesive and spray the cardboard. Glue your corkboard to the cardboard. I also used some glue cement because the spray adhesive wasn’t as sticky as I wanted.
Cut your fabric so that you have about 1 inch on each side of the corkboard. You will need the extra so you can wrap it. I went ahead and ironed my fabric so that it was nice and sleek.
Wrap your corkboard/cardboard combo in the fabric. Pull as tight as you can and use a stapler to secure it. I just used a regular desk stapler (one that opens up). I have a heavy duty stapler, but the staples were too big and went all the way through. Make sure your staples aren’t poking through in the front. It’s not a pretty look. And it hurts.
Insert your corkboard in to the frame. It should fit perfectly since the cardboard was cut to fit the opening. I used small finishing nails to hold it in place.
There you have it…a fun jewlery board with a little bit of style!
This is the one I made for my friend Kelly as a house warming gift!
You can get decorative push pins to use to hang your necklaces. I haven’t hung mine just yet, but it’s finally in my closet and holding my jewlery.
Now go make yours!!
