Dress form jewelry stand

So I was browsing in my local craft store, 40% coupon in tow, passing the unfinished wood section where I saw this lonely naked dress form and stopped to stare.  “I’ll dress you up,” I told her.  

And I did 😉  Loving my dress form jewelry stand!

8″ dress form . round base x2 . finial . white paint . brush . skinny ric rac . spray adhesive . hot glue . fabric*
*fabric measurements roughly 12×10

1. Paint all wooden pieces
2. Wrap fabric around dress form and mark 2 creases underneath breast area
3. Stitch (2) 1.5″ creases underneath the dress form breast area so fabric lays flat when pulled 
{Warning: you get kinda handsy with your mannequin!}
4. Spray fabric glue on dress form and press fabric on, smoothing out any lines and/or bubbles as you go
5. Fold a small crease along each shoulder so fabric will lay flat
6. Fold all fabric underneath and secure with a dab of hot glue.

Once the dress form is dressed all pretty, simply hot glue the skinny ric rac along the sides of the form, covering any seams (see pics below*) and along the neckline.  
*Note: I saved a 1.5″ scrap of fabric to cover the back and make it look more complete.

Hot glue all the pieces together {see final product} and you’re done!  Pretty easy and now you’ve got a sweet little dress form jewelry stand to show off your bling!

Here’s a few of my fav pieces:
1. Button bracelet by Clella Belle’s Beads 2. Chosen necklace by Cap Creations 3. Rosette necklace by Whippy Cake
