Happy (almost) Spring, Beadphoria friends! With this being the first Monday of the month, it is time for the Designer Crafts Blog Hop! The theme this month is March, and what it means to you. For me, March means the arrival of spring. A time for renewal. What was once barren is now brought back to life.

With the feeling of being renewed, we often want to bring beauty into our surroundings. One way we can do this is by doing some spring cleaning. This simple project will bring new life to a boring bulletin board and it will help organize your jewelry!

The bulletin board pictured above had been on the wall of the Beadphoria, Inc. for quite awhile. It became one of those things that you see, but didn’t look at every day. As you can see, it was in desperate need of a makeover.

Materials for the spring cleaning makeover

Here are the materials we used:

-Bulletin Board

-Fabric Remnant

-Brown Velvet Ribbon

-Glue Gun & Glue Sticks

-Picture Hangers

The fabric was spread out onto the floor and the bulletin board placed in the middle.

Next, hot glue was put onto the frame on the back of the bulletin board to hold the fabric in place. From there, we flipped the bulletin board over. Using the glue gun, we tacked the brown ribbon in place around the edge of the frame.

How much prettier is that!

Of course the work had to be inspected by our quality control manager and customer service rep, Lola.

We placed the bulletin board back on the wall, and started putting the picture hooks in.

Only thing left was to add the jewelry!

We now have a beautiful showcase for our jewelry with a little bit of spring cleaning effort!
