Jewelry Corkboard Tutorial

I love how my fabric jewelry cork board turned out soooo much 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

*Spray adhesive

*Fabric of your choice

*Scissors

*Desk stapler

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 cork board 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 cork board. 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 cork board/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 cork board 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!

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 jewelry

 Now go make yours!!

    I made one this past summer – LOVE it! And always get tons of compliments on it. You can also put some ribbon on it and use it for pictures, recipes etc. I have one in the kitchen and one in my stairway that I use for invites etc.

    PS. If you can’t find push pins you like – I bought scrapbook stickers that fit on the head of the pushpin and changed them

    Pinterest is extremely dangerous. I get way too many ideas of things I want to do. Love the corkboard jewelry frame though.

    Wow, this is great! I have a lot of jewelry just lying about everywhere. It’s so hard just to keep track of them and when I want to look for a specific one, I can never find it! It’s so frustrating! Thanks for posting this though, now I have something to do that will be very helpful to me in the future!
