I’ve discussed my ever-growing collection of jewelry in the past, so you know that I’m always looking for new ways to keep it all together. Just recently I came up with another way to display and organize my accessories & I like it so much, I’m sharing it with you. While this is great for jewelry, its also an ideal way to keep my daughters hair accessories together. It’s now SO much easier to just grab what I need & then put it back when I’m all done. Even better, it’s cute enough to just hang on the wall.
-Now, this is more than my usual 3 step DIY, but it’s worth it. (Plus it’s still not that many steps, after all I’m an inpatient girl…I gotta be able to make everything before my kiddo wakes up for her nap. More than that? Not doing it ;)
Supplies Needed: (Easily modified, see below)
- Canvas (It could be blank or to save some steps just buy a painted canvas )
- Wallpaper-Wrapping Paper or Fabric
- Screw Hooks
- Tape Measure
- Pencil or Marker
- Elmers Spray Adhesive & Staple Gun/Stapler (see below)
- Elastic, Twine or Fabric Strips
- Cut a piece of paper or fabric that is large enough to cover the front and sides of the canvas
- If using paper, then spray the adhesive to the front & the sides. Run your hand across the front and the sides to make sure there aren’t any bubbles. To make sure it stayed in place, I stapled the paper to the back of the canvas also. (If using fabric, then cover the front & sides, making sure it’s snug , flip the canvas over so the front is facing down & then staple fabric to the back of the canvas)
- Screw hooks into the bottom of the canvas. On the small canvas for my daughers
headbands, each mark was an inch apart so I just marked each inch with a pencil & then screwed the hooks in. On the large canvas that I use for my jewelry, I used large hook screws & placed them about 3 inches apart.
- Then you can add some fabric, twine or elastic to hold smaller items like earrings, barrettes etc. I used elastic, so I just cut a piece that was a little bigger than the canvas, strung across the front making sure it’s snug & then stapled it to the back. I stapled mine a few inches apart so there was enough room for all the earrings/bows/barrettes.
Wanna make this even easier? Just buy a painted canvas so you’ll only have to add the hooks and the elastic.
I’ll also be demonstrating how to create these in one of my future video tutorials, which i’ll post here when complete. I’m also on a bit of a roll coming up with DIY’s that have to do with jewelry, so I’ll have another cool way to organize & display earrings coming soon.
Ta-Ta for now,
