Hello again! I (Lindsey) am back with my second DIY project! I have to admit, I think I’m actually enjoying this whole DIY thing now. I enjoyed my coffee cup candle experience and I have definitely enjoyed making this jewelry holder! Especially the shopping part (surprise, surprise). I like this project in particular because there is so much room for your own creativity and style to shine through. From the size and shape of the frame to the type of lace or color of the paint, you can individualize it to suit your taste and home decor! Oh and did I mention that it also makes a great gift?! So without further ado…
What you will need:
- Frame (you can pick one that can sit on your dresser that would just hold earrings or select a larger one like mine to hang on the wall with necklaces)
- Lace (you can use an old lace tablecloth or just go buy a piece from your local fabric store!)
- Paint (if you want or need to paint your frame, hooks or knobs)
- Staple gun and/or glue gun
- Knobs or hooks for necklaces and bracelets (I initially had hooks I was going to use but at the last minute decided to go find some vintage knobs!)
1. Go shopping! My favorite part! Hit up your local Goodwill or antique stores to look for frame, lace and knobs. My frame was $3 at Goodwill and I found my knobs at a local antique store for $1.50-$2.00 each. Unfortunately I never found a lace tablecloth, but that’s okay because JoAnn Fabrics was running a sale on the fun lace fabric I ended uppicking! And I had plenty leftover.
2. Paint your frame (if you want.) I spray painted mine a dark brown then went back over it with gold and brown acrylic paint using an old rag. I like how the gold gives it a little sparkle!
3. Cut your lace to fit your frame.
4. Staple (or glue) your lace to the back of your frame, making sure you keep it pulled tight. My sweet husband assisted with this part and that made it easier!
5. Glue on your knobs. (Or screw in your hooks if you decided on those instead).
6. Hang and decorate with your jewelry!
