What do you like to Create: things for my home, our kids, and treats to eat.
My two girls don’t have a very extensive jewelry collection, and mostly what they have is little plastic beaded stuff. But what they do have is often in a tangled up mess in a box and they never wear it. So I turned a plain Ikea MALMA mirror into a cute place for their necklaces and bracelets to hang. Here’s what you’ll need to make one yourselfIkea mirror
paint (I used regular craft paint in a light blue)brushsandpapernailshammersaw tooth hanger Start by painting the frame of the mirror. You can tuck paper around the actual mirror to keep paint off of it, but if a little gets on, it scrapes off easily as well. You may need to do a few coats. When it’s completely dry, sand corners and edges as desired to distress.
Find the center on the top back of the mirror and install the saw tooth hanger. Then on the front of the mirror, set small nails all around the edges, alternating placement so pieces can hang down.
Hang on the wall, preferably at a low enough level where your kids can reach it, and add necklaces and bracelets. Hopefully they’ll think it looks so cute they’ll put the items back at the end of the day too 🙂
