Jewelry hanger

This a a project I worked on with my mom last summer. Her jewelry was always in tangles in the jewelry box and she could never see all the pieces without digging around and making more of a tangled mess. 
To do this project you'll need:
large cork bulletin board
Spray adhesive
Cup hooks

It's really quite easy. Align the fabric over the cork board and then use spray adhesive to attach it to the cork board. I cute the fabric just barely bigger (like 1/4 or 1/8 of an inch) than the inside edge of the frame. Then, I used a utility knife to shove the fabric into the crack between the edge of the frame and the edge of the cork.
Next, we laid out all the jewelry onto the surface and came up with a plan for the lay out of the hooks that would accomodate all the jewelry.
I used a marker and a ruler to evenly mark the spot where the hooks were going to be attached.
Last, we just screwed in the hooks by hand. Some took a little more elbow grease than others, but it was pretty easy once you broke through the fabric.
Then, we hung it up and put on the jewelry- super easy!
A little trick that might help when it's time to hang the jewelry, take a picture of the original layout of the jewelry when you are making the plan of where to put the hooks, that way if you forget how they were all suppose to fit, you have a frame of reference.
