How to Make a Jewelry Board

A few months ago, I attended Craft Carnival's craft night. I made the cutest jewelry board, which I am entering in a drawing for currently. If you have it in your heart to vote for me, click here for all details! Anyway, this jewelry board is so cute and easy to make, I thought I'd share it with you!

You'll need:
  •  9x11 Wood Block, about 1 inch thick (you can find these at Roberts or your local craft store)
  • Craft paint (1 color) & sponge brush
  • Scrapbook paper
  • Glue stick, scissors, and drill
  • Smalls hooks

1. First lay foil or newspapers underneath your wood block and then begin painting. Although it is not necessary to paint the top because the paper will cover it, the choice it yours. Allow the paint to dry before covering. 

2. Meanwhile, cut the scrapbook paper of your choice to cover the front of the wood block. Once you are done cutting and the block is dried, glue it to the front of your wooden block.

3. Now, drill small holes in the desired region of the board. The location typically depends on the type of jewelry you wish to hang (necklaces, bracelets, or a combination of both).

4. After the holes have been drilled, screw your hooks in and you are done! You can either hang yours on the wall or support it with a easel like mine below!

See how easy crafting can be! If you already have the basic craft supplies on hand this craft is pretty inexpensive too!



  1. I saw this and voted for you but wanted to know how to make it, thanks for the tips! I love it and am definitely going to make this one of my summer projects :)

  2. Thanks Heather, I appreciate it! I'm glad you liked the craft and post. I'll keep posting how to make cute and easy crafts in the future as well!
