When husband and I moved into our house, two apartments became one home. Needless to say, there were lots of leftovers. We picked through what we would like to use in our new home and everything else was placed in our basement storage area…in the event we ever needed it, ya know? One afternoon I was cleaning our bedroom and became sidetracked rifling through my jewelry. I wear it on occasion, but not as often as I would like. Part of that was due to the fact that it was not out and “in plain sight”. Remembering that we had some extra frames, I headed to Pinterest hoping to find some DIY that would allow my jewelry to be on display and would hopefully lead to it being worn more often.
After my search, I was off to the local Tractor Supply Co to get chicken wire and then home to create my project. It truly proved to be as simple as I had imagined. The other items I was going to need I had on hand and was ready to get started.
If you are in need of a great jewelry holder, key holder, or picture frame…this just might be your ticket.
Items needed: old frame, paint (if needed), chicken wire, wire cutters, fabric, staple gun.
Step 1 – Paint your picture frame. If you prefer the look of your frame, move to step 2.
Step 2 – roll out your chicken wire and cut a piece that fits the back of your frame. I had mine go to the outside edge.
Step 3 – Using your staple gun, staple down the chicken wire. I did so about every 2 inches.
Step 5 – Begin stapling your fabric around the back of the frame. This will hide any of the sharp edges, plus it will provide protection as it hangs against your walls.
I will leave you with the two pieces that I currently have on display in our bedroom. They blend in nicely with our decor and I just love how they turned out. I added hooks to the bottom of my jewelry one so I am able to hang my necklaces. An easy step that provides extra storage. Have you done any DIYs to display your jewelry or pictures? Would love to see some additional ideas…always looking for something new to create.
Be sure to come back next Thursday. I will be completing a product review of a fantastic pencil sharpener. Not just for homeschooling families or classrooms…and best of all – it was created by a fellow teacher from North Carolina 🙂 Be sure to check it out!!
Happy almost weekend!
