Jewlery Display

I am always looking for fun ways to display my jewelry from chloe+isabel.  The other night, I was wondering through a local craft store and challenged myself to create a necklace display that was under $10.  I strolled the aisles searching for supplies and came up with the following idea...

The Tools:

  • glue gun
  • glue sticks
  • scissors
  • ruler

Time Commitment:

  • Approximately 10-15 minutes (probably less if you aren't a finicky crafter like me)

The Materials:

  • 9"x12" white canvas
  • rope
  • embellishments (flowers)*
  • hooks*
  • plate stand

*I had these items at home so, these did not add to my cost.

This project was so simple, you are going to LOVE it!  As I was assembling my necklace display, I couldn't help but think of all the different variations that could be made with this project!  Fun stuff, I tell ya.  I took pictures along the way because I'm visual and hope you are too.  Here's my step-by-step...

STEP 1 // Cut the rope
Roll out your rope along the edge of the canvas to measure one side and cut with scissors.

STEP 3 // Add the hooks
Grab your ruler and measure the center, this is where you will add your first hook.  Press your hook through the canvas and screw into the wood frame.  Then repeat the left and right side.
(A little note about the hooks, they have a screw on the bottom and I had white on hand but you can chose any color you wish.)
TIP:  Be sure that the hook lines up with the wood frame on the back of the canvas, otherwise, your hook will fall off if not mounted into the wood frame.

STEP 2 // Glue it down
Run your glue gun along one side of the canvas and press your cut pieces of rope into the glue.  I suggest only doing one side at a time because the hot glue will dry fairly quick.  Repeat on all edges of your canvas.

STEP 4// Place on stand
Isn't that so simple!  Your finished and ready to display your lovely jewels. (chloe+isabel, I hope!)

Now, remember when I mentioned all the other options you could create with this project?  I couldn't create them all but here is a list of ideas for your inspiration:

  • use ribbon or fabric instead of rope
  • paint the canvas a bright color to match your display or make your jewels pop!
  • add fabric flowers (see below)
  • add more hooks to display more necklaces (this would work with pendants or charms)
  • create a "collection" display... you could easily put earrings through the canvas to display along with your necklace and hang a coordinating bracelet on another hook.
