How to Use a Bulletin Board to Display Jewelry (Tutorial)

When you can see your jewelry, you’re more likely to wear it. That’s why I keep my accessories out in the open. It reminds me to enjoy them every day.

Bonus! I get to see the pretty baubles all the time.

How to Use a Bulletin Board to Display Jewelry

Using a bulletin board to display jewelry is simple. All you need is a few pins and a great looking board. In this example, I customized it with a modern twist on a 90s favorite – splatter paint!

Step 1: Paint it White

Paint the board white. You’ll probably need several coats to get the desired effect. Having done this with both spray paint and acrylic paint in the past, I prefer acrylic. It soaks into the corkboard better.

Step 2: Protect and Splatter

Pick an area to start splattering the frame. Guard the cork board by putting down paper.

Dip the toothbrush into your gold paint. Then, flick the bristles to create a splatter.

Step 3: Add Dimension

Drop some larger splatters using a paint brush. Just hang it above and flick it Jackson Polluck style.

Step 4: Pin and Enjoy

I prefer to use white sewing pins over typical office push pins. They make it easier to hang jewelry. Add your accessories and enjoy.

How do you Display Your Gems?

I’d love to see how you display your gems. Maybe you are using a bulletin board or perhaps, you hang them on a little tree. Whether you keep them out or store them away, I’d love to see how you keep them.
