A mini tutorial today on another way to display necklaces. I’m on a cleaning kick at the moment so I’m trying to be more organised. I found a bunch of necklace displays at a bead store which was closing down for $1 but they were quite ugly. So this is what I did with them. You could easily make your own out of cardboard.
What you need:
- Plastic jewelery stands, or cardboard to make your own.
- Pretty paper or fabric. I am using some rose scented draw liners I found at a junk store.
- Glue gun
Unfortunately some of my photos didn’t turn out well as the plastic displays were clear and the camera had trouble focusing on them.To give you an idea of what my jewelery stand looks like I’ve outlined it in pink here:
To make your own, just cut that shape out of cardboard. Mine has a stand that folds back but depending on where you’re going to be putting it, that might be unnecessary.
Cut a section of the paper or fabric out which is big enough to cover the display completely and fold around the sides to the edges are hidden.
Use your glue gun to stick the base to the back of the paper.
Roll it forward and stick the top down as well. My stand was slightly curved so getting the paper lined up was a little hard. Make sure it’s perfect before you glue.
Cut the excess paper around the sides off so there is only a few inches of overhang.
Now fold the extra around the sides and carefully glue in place.
Repeat on the other side like this:
When you get to the curved bits just snip the paper ever few centimeters so you can fold it around the curve.
Glue this in place too…
This is how the other side looks:
I repeated this on all 4 of the ones I had:
Now it’s time to add some decoration. I didn’t want anything that would take away from the jewelery so I chose a fine white lace. You could also use ribbon or anything else glue-able.
I added the lace around the edges using a small amount of glue and that’s it ^_^ A nice simple craft which can be done in a few minutes.
Once I finish my cupboard re-organisation then you can see them all in action 😀
