Anyway, we wanted to give them a "fun" day outside-- so we held a mini Olympics last Thursday. We had various events: 3 legged races, pool noodle javelin throw, Frisbee discus, etc. Anyway, we were outside pretty much ALL day. The wind was blowing-- so even though it was hot I didn't even realize I was burning. But now I sit, 3 days later, hardly able to lift my arms because of a sunburn. Yikes. I will never forget to put on sunscreen again!
My pinterest project of the week has me VERY excited! I found this picture of a homemade jewelry holder that you hang on the wall. I am always forgetting to put on my jewelry-- I assume it's because my jewelry is hidden under things in my closet. So maybe with them hanging on the wall I will wear them more often!
Here is what you need:
|My fabric only cost like $2.40 (I only needed 1 yard!)|
|I liked them because they were gold and prettier than regular push pins!|
Then, fold up on side of the fabric and start stapling. You could also use glue, hot glue, tape, etc. I decided to use staples because I had a stapler on hand and I hate burning my hand with hot glue!
The pull the fabric tight (cut off extra length) and staple along the other edges:
I know it's not the neatest-- and it's not perfect-- but the best part is that this is the BACK-- nobody will ever see this side! So it doesn't need to be perfect! Here is the front:
For the next part I hung it up on the wall (mine is hanging on a nail) and put in the pushpins/added my necklaces. However, you can easily add the pushpins before you hang it up. Try not to put all the pins in a row. If you vary the heights of them, your necklaces will hang more like artwork. It's up to you. The best part it is that it's a cork board, so you can always move them around if you need to. Or move the pins as you add more jewelry. Here is my finished board:
|I have plenty of room for more!|
|Varying the lengths makes it unique!|
