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 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. I am known to have many frames hanging around (ha ha) with no purpose or plan. With the addition of some black lace material and a coordinating material underneath to go with the mauve in the room, the two fit together very nicely to create this “Get the Hang of It” DIY craft.
I took the backing of the frame out. The glass was long gone and I didn’t need it anyway.
Next, 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.
I took upholstery tacks and pushed them into the front top of the frame. These can be bought at a hardware or even fabric store, as regular tacks aren’t long enough. 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 my “Get the Hang of It” project was ready for hanging.
I was excited to hang my new DIY craft on the wall and add all of my lovelies. I think it is a lovely home decor display as well as a functional necklace and earrings holder.
