Now I don't know about you guys, but when I was little I didn't have much jewellery, real or otherwise. I had a gold locket from my Grandma that I still have, but nothing else until I was well into my teens. My kids have LOADS of jewellery (not including all the costume stuff I've been hoarding that was my Grandma's). They got loads more this past birthday. Bracelets, necklaces, even watches, though they can't tell time. Before we had it in a plastic box, to keep it all together, but of course that just made a huge mess out of. I got tired to untangling things every time they wanted something. Then we got creative!
|We call this the "dress up box" but really it is just a mess|
We bought a cork board at the shop for £2.20, and then used what we had at home to prettify it. Since it is going in the girls room, I let them pick the fabric and ribbon.
Then I just glued some fabric straight onto the cork with craft glue, and when that was dry, I hot glued the ribbon around the edge.
After that I got hubby to hang it up for me (I was looking at the hanging pack like it was an alien, and I swear I'm not clueless) and I stuck in a bunch of push pins I had in the drawer. Viola!
And the whole thing only cost £2.20, the rest was already in the craft cupboard. Yippee!!
