$3 Jewelry Organizer

Well, this is embarrassing. I wish I could tell you that I staged this picture to make a dramatic after effect for this post. I did not. You see, I have this adorable necklace holder, but all of my necklaces are too long! So I end up just dropping everything on my vanity. One thing leads to another and then… this.

But not any more! You see, I’ve been lurking the blogosphere for a while looking for a solution that would work for me. I’ve seen a variety of them, a lot that dealt with picture frames. Trouble is, picture frames are still too small for my uber long necklace tastes. But, they were still floating around in my head when I ran into a very light weight aluminum framed cork board for $3 at a Salvation Army Thrift Store. Situation: solved.

How I Made It:

  1. I started with my cork board. Hubby drilled through the rivets to allow me to take the frame off. Then I covered it with fabric and put the frame back on.
  2. I wanted to try a transfer treatment I’d seen on a couple blogs. So, I glued some wax paper to a sheet of card stock.

  3. I printed my reversed design onto the waxy side of the paper. (Image from the Graphics Fairy)
  4. I used my spritzer to dampen the fabric, and then laid my paper face down on it. I used the spoon to burnish the design onto the fabric. It worked well!
  5. Um… That’s pretty much it. I know easy right? Then I just stuck tacks in the cork board where needed and hung my necklaces on it! I even found a row of hooks at the dollar store, and used tacks to hold that on near the bottom. Now I have a place to hang my headbands!

    1. I’m so glad you like it! I totally agree I’d seen a lot that were just fabric covered- but that didn’t really fit the decor of my french country bedroom. But those amazing Graphics Fairy graphics of french labels really spruced it up!
