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!
Time Required: 10-30 minutes
Cost: Free or Minimal
- Paint Brush
- Drop Cloth
- Bulletin Board
- White Paint
- Gold Paint
Start with a bulletin board of any size you like. I had previously used this one in an office. So, it was looking a little rough.
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.
