I was looking for something to craft-fu into a jewelry organizer - the ones on the market aren't really my cuppa and they're expensive to boot.  So when I was at Salvation Army, I spotted one of those wooden collectible spoon displays for $4.  Sold!

With a bit of spray paint, some wooden dowels, two pieces of scrapbooking paper, a ribbon, 3 vintage buttons, and some picture hanging paraphernalia and ... viola:




The ribbons were supposed to be for my stud earrings ... put the post through the ribbon and they're all in one place.  Easy as pie, right?  Well, I chose the He-Man of ribbons, apparently, and it was a pain.  So now it's just decoration and making sure the dowels don't roll out (unlikely but ah well.)  I'll probably tuck up the ends with a bit of craft tape so it looks more finished.


And this is what it started out as:



Overall, I really like how it came out. Smiley

I'm in the exact same boat.  I used to just have little hooks and a few wires strung about for necklaces and earring, but we've got a new house and I don't want to put all those holes in my walls, ya know?  Great idea! It's very cute!

Thank you so much!

And that's a great idea.  I might have to see how much plastic canvas (I think that's what it is!) is!
