So, I am not a big jewelry person, but I have a few pieces that I have collected over the years. Strictly costume jewelry, but they are pieces that I like to wear on occasion, and when I worked full-time, practically every day. But the problem is, they were a tangled mess in the jewelry box that I had them housed in. Then, trying to untangle the hot mess would just leave me frustrated, and more times than not, I would just say “Aww, forget it!” and leave the yarn sized knot in the box.
There had to be a better way. I needed to be able to see the jewelry. I needed to figure out a way to display the pieces, but not have it be in the way. Also, it needed to be pretty. Cause, well you know… 😉
And this is what I came up with:
Ta da! Neat, organized, a bit retro, and a dash of pretty. Total cost? One dollar. Yup, that’s it. The ribbon was purchased at a craft store in a clearance bin and it was only $1.
I really love what I came up with! Everything has a place: my necklaces, my bracelets, and my “going out” purse.
I added in some “old Hollywood” pictures of Myrna Loy (love her!) that I had, and I found an old Mad Libs from when my husband and I took a road trip a few years ago. I cut off the cover, and tacked it up the wall. Also, I had this random Avengers postcard, so hey, that went up too!
I love, love, love my jewelry display! And the best part? It was totally a frugal project!
