[Crafty Lady] $5 DIY Jewelry Display
I shared last week some inspiration for a jewelry display for my closet. I wanted to do this as cheaply as possibly, so I tried to upcycle or use as many items as I had on hand.
The Ikea Flang is a piece I've had since college. I used it back then to hang my necklaces from, and continued to do so, until we moved into this house and I put it in Ashlynn's room for her headbands. I thought about painting it, but instead used some of the left over gift wrap I had from the girls' Ikea Latt Table makeover. I unscrewed the knobs and used spray adhesive to adhere the gift wrap. I popped the screws through the paper and put the knobs back on. I have considered painting the knobs gold or even black, but might just leave them.
Especially since they match the silver jewelry tree, I picked up from Target for $5.98 on clearance. They had a handful of them on an end cap and they were originally $19.99, and had been marked down 30%. Since there was so many, I assumed they'd be marked down again, a few weeks later were, 70%. Target stalking pays!
Oh, and yes, that's a ten+ year old bottle of my husband's Curve cologne. It's a bit sentimental, the scent, not the bottle, so while it's not used, I like the memories it creates.
Moving on, the display frame! I originally thought I would get a shadowbox frame, but when the prices were close to $30 or more, I decided to pass. I had also thought about creating my own peg board and customizing it to fit my needs, like this, but I really didn't want something giant on the wall. It's just my space to get ready, not a showroom. So I grabbed a wooden tray, from the wood crafts section by Artminds (can't find it on the website) for just under $5. It's extremely lightweight, and a bit cheap (obviously), but completely serves it purpose.
I painted the handles and sides black, and then used spray adhesive for the Rifle Paper Co gift wrap. I did a top coat of Mod Podge because I thought about giving it to the girls to use with their table as a serving tray. Yeah, greedy mommy, I'm keeping it for myself. I hot glued two picture hooks to the back, since all the screws I had were too long for it. I just used some clear push pins to hang the necklaces. And the handles hanging vertically allow my to place my wide bangles for display too.
I'm sure I'll keep moving things around, or find new homes for some of the items in my jewelry box, so I stop forgetting I own certain pieces. Nothing like a pretty and CHEAP DIY!
