Jewelry Display

My jewelry box is usually a tangled mess of necklaces and bracelets.  I've seen so many cute jewelry display frames and I knew that I just had to make one.  So, I pulled out this shirt...

...that I wore while pregnant.

Here's a close up of the prettiness:

I got a 12x12 corkboard, centered the pretty design around the board and cut.  Then I stapled the fabric to the back of the board.

Next, I used a nail and hammer to make two holes for hanging. Here's the back.  I know it doesn't look great, but I'm okay with it.  If I were giving this as a gift, I would cover the ragged edges with ribbon.

Here's the front.  I then used a pair of scissors to cut holes in the shirt for hanging.

I added some ribbon for hanging.

And tied cute little knots to hold in place.

Next, I screwed little hooks through the shirt and corkboard.  I was loving this project so much that I forgot to take a picture of this step.

I found the perfect spot on the inside of my closet and hung it with a nail.  I added my jewelry and there ya have it.  Necklaces and bracelets organized and ready to wear!
