Today I wanted to share a quick and easy project I whipped up this last weekend! Lately I have been wanting to wear more jewelry, and I felt that displaying my jewelry pieces would really help motivate me to wear them more often. Right now they are stashed away in a jewelry box, which means that I basically wear the same three pieces of jewelry over and over again because I forget about all the others! So here is my quick and easy jewelry display tutorial:
The last time I was at Ikea I grabbed a set of three cork heat pads for under $1.00.
I then grabbed a piece of fabric from my stash with a big, bold print. This fabric worked out perfectly because each flower was about as big as one of my cork circles!
I placed each cork circle on top of a flower and traced around the cork circle.
Then I cut a few inches AROUND my traced circle. Do NOT cut on the traced circle!
Next, I cut triangular pieces out of my excess fabric (the few inches around the traced circle) so it looked like a sunburst. I made sure not to cut right up to the traced circle, I left a little bit of space.
Then I placed the cork circle in the middle of my ‘sunburst’, whipped out my hot glue gun, and started gluing each tab onto the cork circle.
I glued each of the tabs, pulling the fabric tight as I went.
That’s it! You now have a beautiful fabric covered cork circle! You could use this for a super cute message board if you wanted, but I continued on to make a jewelry display.
I took T-shaped straight pins and stuck them in my cork circles in a staggered pattern.
I then glued a bit of ribbon on to the back of each cork circle and hung them on a blank wall in my closet. It was perfect!
Then I loaded each circle up with all of my jewelry pieces!
I really love how these turned out, and I think they will definitely help me wear more of my jewelry!
