DIY jewelry nail art! :)

So I've seen these and I thought they were so cool so I decided to make my own! :) 

Items you will need: 

Cardboard (you can also use cork board or another thing like that) ;)
String (optional)
Glue gun
And tacks (the ones u use on pin up boards) 

Lay your frame on the cardboard and trace the outside of it onto the cardboard.

Cut it out.

See if the cardboard fits inside the frame (trime it down to fit if it doesn't) 

Now lay the cardboard onto some fabric (on the wrong side of the fabric) trace around the cardboard.

Cut he fabric out make sure the cut it a little bigger then how you traced it (like above)

Fold the excesses fabric to the back and glue in place

Put it in the frame (I glued mine in so it would be extra secure. 

Push some tacks into the board wherever you like then hang some jewalry on the tacks and your done!

Then let it dry I stuck it in a roll of tape to help it drie better. (Sorry about the messy background)
