Hang It Up

My daughter has a HUGE collection of jewelry. She's already filled up the jewelry frame I made. For Christmas she received so many necklaces that I told her that I would make her a necklace holder. Almost two months later, I finally decided to cross that project off my list. Here's how I made it.
First, I found some pretty fabric.
I took out the mod podge and picked out some drawer knobs while hubby cut a board to size and drilled holes to fit the screws for the knobs.I painted the board black. When it was dry I placed it on top of the upside-down fabric and traced around the board. I cut out the fabric. I brushed mod podge onto the board and applied the fabric piece.Then I brushed a layer of mod podge on top of the fabric in one direction. When dry, I brushed on another layer in the opposite direction.Lastly, I poked holes in the fabric to screw on the drawer knobs, then added the hanging hardware.And there you have it! A pretty necklace holder, or towel holder, or apron holder, or whatever-you-choose holder.

that is lovely! so you don't have problems with the knobs staying secure in the board, since it is not wood? or it is wood and I misread? i'm going to go back and read again... it is early!

Seriously, how do you come up with these ideas?! I just bought my first Modge Podge yesterday-in honor of you...I might try to make a clipboard to start. Any tips?
You really do inspire me!
I am already regreting giving my mom an old table because I should have painted it black like your last post...I don't think I can ask for it back, now... LOL

What a terrific idea! My daughter would love this for her jewelry and scarves. And it would go perfectly with her skeleton keys which hang from ribbons. Your ideas are so helpful and beautiful.

Joy - it's so pretty! I need Modge Podge now and something to put it on.

And something to spray paint.

I think you need a show on HGTV.

Pretty clever. Everyone needs a pretty something to hang your jewelery from. Mine hangs on my dresser mirror. I do think I may be making one of these.
