Jewelry Holder Frame
I have tons of jewelry, so much I always forget what I have because I never see it. I’ve seen so many different versions of picture frames turned jewelry holders on Pintrest and they inspired me to create my own. I stayed home from work yesterday due to a killer migraine, so my boyfriend came over to keep me company. He ended up helping me create my jewelry holder, and to be honest his touch made it look so amazing I am in love with it!
What you will need:
- Frame (I searched yard sales, thrift stores, and dollar stores but never found a frame I liked, I eventually found this one at Ross for around $7)
- Small square chicken wire (My dad had some in the backyard from a project years ago so it was free! But he told me it can be bought at Home Depot)
- Spray paint and old newspaper
- Wire Cutters
- Tissue paper, scrap-book paper, or fabric
- Ruler,scissors, and glue stick
- 3 or 4 paperclips
- Any other desired decorations
Measure size of cardboard to know how much chicken wire to cut. Either trace cardboard on wire or measure it out.
Once size is known, use wire cutters to cut wire to appropriate size. (This is where my boyfriend helped, I just help the wire from shaking as he cut.)
Over a trash can, cut off unneeded edges to remove sharp pieces and get correct size wire to fit in frame.
Spray paint wire. I laid mine on old newspaper to protect the floor underneath. Wait for paint to dry fully.
Originally, I was going to cut the back part of my frame off since it folded open instead of coming off all the way. Then my boyfriend said I should put fabric on the back of it to make a better decoration. He’s genius! I didn’t have fabric I wanted to use so I used tissue paper instead. Plus tissue paper is light and won’t add extra weight to the frame when standing up or hanging. Trace cardboard piece from earlier on back of tissue paper and cut out appropriate size. Use glue stick and cover back of tissue paper; attach to back of frame and use ruler to smooth out bubbles.
Put wire into frame, bend metal pieces into place (if present) and now you have an awesome jewelry holder!
I have more necklaces and I wanted a way to put them on my new holder. With a paper clip my boyfriend created a hook for me in the same fashion as a hook used to hang ornaments on a Christmas tree. It doesn’t seem very high-tech, but I love the idea because they can be moved at any time and blend in with the back ground.
