I made a DIY jewellery stand. Yes, I did. I’m not a crafter by any stretch of the imagination, but this is so easy peasy lemon squeezy, even I could do it!
I’ve been looking at options for jewellery storage. I’ve been trawling Pinterest, Etsy and Googling right, left and centre for interesting pictures and ideas.
Today, I got inspired and made a little DIY jewellery stand from a picture frame, some cork coasters, dress pins bent at a right angle for the hooks, and some flotsam and jetsam from my sewing box. Not to forget my trusty hot glue gun!
Simply glue some cork to the backboard of the frame, decorate as required with push pins, or right-angled dress pins, flowers and ribbons. I added a big button to hang bangles from.
In place of cork, you could use some polystyrene or foam board covered in fabric. Simply cut the board to the required size and place in the middle of your piece of fabric, wrong side up. Then fold the edges over and pin down, or glue it down.
The one I’ve made isn’t terribly big, but large enough to, say, keep the special pieces I might wear every day, or display some vintage favourites as an art installation in my wardrobe. I think it might be handy for working out jewellery options for a special occasion outfit.
Of course, you can make yours as big, or as small, as you like. A beautiful way to keep your wedding rings at night time would be in a teeny tiny little frame. You could use fabric scraps from your wedding dress to cover the backing board.
I’d love to know how you organise your accessories storage. Would a DIY jewellery stand work for you? I was on a crafting / organising high following this, and made myself a bigger version for DIY hair accessories storage.
