Isn't she a beauty? This necklace holder was really fun to make and surprisingly I found everything I needed at my Hobby Lobby store! Seriously, everything I used is from there except for the jewelry.
Here are the materials you will need:
-Cork Bulletin Board
-Spray Adhesive Glue
-Thumb Tacks (I used gold)
-Hot Glue Gun or E600
-Small Wire Cutters
I started by picking out some pretty material that I liked and used spray adhesive to bond it to the cork board. This was also my first time using this spry adhesive and if you are a pro with this then you will notice that I got the wrong one in the first picture above. It was a temporary bond. I went back and exchanged it for the permanent bond (pictured above) and this one worked really great!
I placed the fabric over the sprayed area and after I smoothed out the wrinkles, I started pushing my gold thumb tacks into the very edge of the cork (between the wood and cork). It took awhile because I wanted each one to look perfect and strait.
This was the end result! It looks beautiful already!
I made sure to start at the corners and then the sides gluing like crazy!
Next I used some pretty buttons and some push pins to create the necklace holders. I basically used some wire cutters to cut off the loop on the back of the button so it can be flat. I then used my hot glue gun to fill up the space where the loop used to be and attached it to the end of the push pin.
I then hung my necklaces on them!
(Note: I would place the push pins where you want them to go before attaching the buttons. I had to learn the hard way that the buttons will come off with pressure and you will have to hot glue them again. You can also use some E600. I've never used it, but I heard it's great for crafts like this)
And that's about it for this little project! I'm so happy that what I envisioned in my head actually came to life! Putting on my necklaces is definitely more fun now!
