I have been asking my husband for a Jewelry box for just about 10 years now. I keep looking to tell him what I want and just can’t find something that is big enough for what I have, but small enough that it doesn’t take up too much room. Oh, and I want it to be cute and not grandma looking. Tall order huh?
- An old frame
- cardboard or foam core
- material in velvet or another fun fabric, or textured wallpaper (which I used, and you will need to paint and glue).
- and straight pins.
First off I cut some cardboard to make the backing in the size of the frame. I made an 8×10 for this one, but I plan on making a larger size.
I cut the wallpaper to match the size of the cardboard and glued it down with Mod Podge. Then I painted it a fun blue to match my room.
Once it was dry, I inserted it into the frame and started placing the straight pins hanging my jewelery from those. It is super fun and I can’t wait to make a bigger one. I want to head to a thrift store to find a fun old frame.
I also thought it would be so fun to make a cute one for my girl’s rooms. This might even make a fun gift for someone. You could always give them a fun piece of jewelry hanging from it. Hint, hint for those husbands out there. 😉
Have fun and let me know what you try!
