My New and Beautiful Necklace Display

Finally, my necklaces have a nice home! Check it out!!!
DIY Necklace Organization / Storage {Breezy Pink Daisies}
 I showed you back in July how I was keeping my necklaces "organized." Well, here's what my necklaces (still looked like) until this week!
Not so pretty, I know. Well, I finally did something about it!

I had Monday off from school and used about an hour to create my new necklace holder! If only I knew it was going to be so easy! 
Photobucket
I had these frames given to me. I wasn't a fan of the artwork, so I had no problem covering it up! However, it was very time consuming to get the artwork out since it was stapled in...but I succeeded, with just a little broken glass.

I wanted to use some cute scrapbook paper for the background but my frame was too large, so I used some extra contact paper that I had picked up from the dollar store! All I did was stick the contact paper on the back of the artwork - so easy!  
Photobucket
Then I had to pound the artwork - backwards - back in place, which was much easier than before since I didn't have to worry about breaking any glass! Now, I have my lovely framed contact paper and just needed to add a way to hold up the necklaces!
I had fun with this! I used my favorite bucket of jewels from Hobby Lobby and glued them onto the front of clear thumbtacks.

And I did a few extra to bring some bling to my bulletin boards at school!

So back to holding my necklaces, I pushed the thumbtacks right in - and they went past the cardboard, but it all works out because it sits that far off the wall anyway. Sooo, what do you think?

I'm loving my bling holders! And my necklaces - maybe now that they are displayed so pretty I'll wear them more often!
