I wanted a different way to store my necklaces. I kept my necklaces in a jewelry box, but since they were tucked away and I didn't see them, I didn't wear them often. My inspiration came from this pin on my Organizing Pinterest board.
I bought an inexpensive old frame years ago. It was just the frame with no glass or artwork in it. I really didn't know what I was going to do with it, but it had such a pretty rustic finish. It was already pretty shabby so I added a touch of gold paint to give it a little chic.
I used some cork that I had from an old cork board I wasn't using any more and wrapped it in fabric. I used a staple gun to staple the fabric to the back of the cork board and popped the whole thing into the frame. Then I screwed some hooks into the cork board to hold the necklaces.
The tutorial for this project is here.
This was another easy project. I had all the materials, too. I love it when I don't have to buy anything!
Now that I can see my necklaces, I wear them more often and I can enjoy them as art even when I'm not wearing them!
