Pinterest Challenge: Corkboard Jewelry Display

Pinterest Challenge Winter Edition

Whew! Well, this Pinterest Challenge really lived up to its name! It was a challenge, not for skills required but in satisfaction with the results. I still don’t know if I love it, but it’s a lot better than where I ended up after the first try! So, like with many things, let’s look at where we started to understand where/how/why things ended up like they did 🙂

A few weeks ago, I saw the pin below from Cutting Edge Stencils, (the original comes from Southern Lovely).

Southern Lovely stenciled corkboard

I had an old corkboard lying around so I figured I’d give it a go. I started out by painting the frame a darker coppery color.

I wasn’t in love, but I thought once I added a design on the cork itself, it’d look better.

Not. So. Much. Once again, my crafting impatience struck. Partway through, I decided I wanted a more random pattern than a uniform one. And I was experimenting with different shades of purple. Yea…… not loving it. So, out came the black paint for a frame re-do. Then, I only had the cork to contend with. I was over painting at this point, so I tried craft paper.

Ugh, seriously?

In the end, my fabric scrap bin came in for the win!

And looks much jazzier than craft paper. I like jazzier.

      thank you! i think the fabric was a better choice than paint or craft paper. plus i can change it out often if i want to! the flowers kind of looks like dahlias up close, but hydrangeas would be lovely too!

      I saw yours too! I think they turned out great! I just wish I’d been able to take the frame off & wrap my fabric around it. Yours look so nice like that 🙂

        Thanks! Oh yea, that is the main difference when you’re using a frame VS a cork board. At least you can move your pins with relative ease!
