In an effort to de-clutter and create a more beautiful space in my bedroom, I wanted to come up with a functional and lovely DIY craft design for displaying my jewelry, namely earrings and necklaces. The clutter and the mess of having necklaces tangled together and earrings getting misplaced was starting to frustrate me. I really wanted a wall hanging doubling as a jewelry display that was out of the dresser clutter and would add some home decor drama to a blank wall. This would get the necklaces and earrings up and out of the clutter zone. But I also wanted to use what I already had in the house.
I am known to have many frames hanging around (ha ha) with no purpose or plan. I wanted to use some black lace material that I had formerly covering a message board. I also wanted to have a coordinating material underneath to go with the pretty mauve tones of the room. The two fit together very nicely.
I took the backing of the frame out. The glass was long gone and I didn’t need it anyway.
Then I cut the lace and material to fit and overlap the frame backing. As it was an Ikea wood frame, it had the handy bendable back fasteners. Once the fasteners were folded over, I could pull the material tighter at the back. I could have used hot glue to adhere the material, but only earrings would hang from the lace, so it would hold. You could also design it with just a piece of lace stapled to the inside of the frame (without the backing and the extra underlay of material.
Then I took upholstery tacks. You can buy these at a hardware or even fabric store, as regular tacks aren’t long enough. Push them into the front top of the frame. It is important to have a wood frame in order for the tacks to go in. The frame already had a wire attached to two screws at the back and so it was ready for hanging.
Then I hung it on the wall and added all of my lovelies.
