My New Jewelry Holder.
Here it is! I love it and it covers up the breaker switch box!
A couple of weeks ago when Blair and I were organizing our apartment, he broke the news to me about a newfound addiction of mine.
Apparently I have a lot of costume jewelry… and keeping it in a brown cardboard box was no longer appropriate.
So being the awesome man and husband he is, he decided to help me out on creating a totally adorable and chic jewelry holder made out of an old window frame!
Using an old window frame we had on hand (Thank you, Black family!), an old pillow case with a rad print and some newly purchased chicken wire from Home Depot, we both finished this project with a huge smile on both of our faces. We LOVED the finished product!
So I want to share it with all of you! The steps are below in a new photo format I’m trying out! *Fingers Crossed* Just click on the first photo on the left to get started!
Enjoy and happy crafting!
To make this Chic Jewelry Holder, follow the steps in this gallery! Click the arrow to the right for Step 1.
Step 1: Lay down the window frame (no glass!) on a protected surface. Then roll out the chicken wire, place on top and with wire cutters, cut enough to leave about an inch of extra wire along the edges. *Be careful – the wire is sharp!
Step 2. Place heavy objects down on the chicken wire to push it into the frame.
Step 3. Staple away!
Step 4. After stapling the wire, it’s time to get the fabric on the back. Make sure the fabric is pulled tight and that the edges are not visible from the front. *Using a clean old pillow case was the perfect amount of fabric for us!
What it looked like after finishing up!
Step 5. Use some twine to create a hanger! All you need to do is securely staple it onto the back – then hang!
Step 6. Add your jewelry!
Step 7. Step back and smile!
