Shabby Chic Jewelry Display Bulletin Board-DIY

Princess Sierra has a lot of Royalty jewels which must be put somewhere I had a thought of  making one of these display frames you often see in jewelry shops and craft fairs.
I had all the needed supplies and within a hour or so,Shabby Chic jewelry display was born 

To make one for yourself,you'll need -
cork sheet
gypsum or acrylic shapes 
white spray
hot glue
double sided tape
and some push pins

Gather your supplies
  1. Shape with your gypsum flourishes the frame you'd like to create and trace that shape on your cardstock 
  2. Cut the cardstock and the cork accordingly 
  3. Using your double sided tape, tape the cork onto the cardstock                                                         *I used two layers of the tape to give some "meat" to the display board otherwise,the cork sheet is too thin and the push pins won't hold in place.                                                                            If you're not going to make an intricate shape for your display board,you always can upcycle an old and ready bulletin board,which usually has a layer of cardboard inside,that will give you enough depth to stick the pin in...Otherwise,use my method 
  4. When your base is ready,it's the paint job time- spray the gypsum shapes with the white spray to give them the Shabby look
  5. Hot glue the shapes onto the bulletin board  you had previously create 
  6. Spray it white too
  7. Stick in your push pins and here you have it-your beautiful handmade jewelry display
