I recently got fed up with the wad of jewelry I store in my closet. I kept losing things, necklaces got tangled, and my earring pairs separated. Finally I decided it was time to make a jewelry holder. After some brainstorming I decided to take two pre-made frames, one homemade frame, and convert them into jewelry holders.
To make the larger frame I used bead board bought from Home Depot. I had my lovely husband cut the ends to 45 degree angles so I could glue and staple them into a frame. I put wood glue between the joints and clamped them until they were dry. I then took a staple gun and stapled the joints. For additional support I used the small pieces Nick cut off of the bead board and glued and stapled them on top of the joints. Once the frame was prepped I spray painted and sanded it to give it a shabby chic look.
After I had all of my frames ready I glued lace to the back of the frame, so it would show through the opening. The lace made it more interesting and gave a place for clip back earring to hang. After the lace I stapled wire mesh, also purchased at Home Depot, to the back. I then hot glued burlap behind the mesh. I hot glued ribbon around the edge to finish it off. To create the hooks to hang the necklaces on I took wire and bent it with pliers. After was all said and done I added wire to the back of the frame so I can hang it on my wall! This was a relatively simple project to fix a very annoying problem!
