DIY Jewelry Holder Tutorial!

I have tons of jewelry and a lovely jewelry box to hold it all in (thanks to the boyfriend),
but it recently started to get a bit crowded in there so I decided I would make
a jewelry holder for my "play" jewelry and keep my nice stuff in the pretty jewelry box :)


I decided to go with a cheery yellow for mine!  I wanted to add a bit of color to my
neutral bathroom and thought this would give it the "pop" that I was going for!

Here is what you'll need to make one of your own:

                                 - Large picture frame (Remember when I got mine for $1 ?)
                                 - Chicken wire or garden wire (mine was $8 for 5 feet of wire)
                                 - Staple gun
                                 - Wire cutter

Instructions:

1.  After you've painted your picture frame the color of your choice, take your
chicken/garden wire and using your wire cutter cut the wire so that there is
excess wire to staple down on the sides of the frame.



2.  Staple the wire down to the back of your frame like so...
I stapled mine about every 4 inches to make sure it was secure.
Except for in this picture when I went a little staple crazy :)


(disregard the paper that accidently got stuck to the back of the frame!)


3. Take a look at your new jewelry holder!  Yes, it was that easy!!




Oh, and what do we have here? Could that be my new stella & dot earrings?



Why yes it is!  And don't they look adorable?




I can't wait to put my new jewelry holder to good use!
Just look at all the earrings, necklaces and bracelets I can fit on here!



Okay, one last shot of my sweet earrings I won :)



I hope everyone is enjoying this short work week!  I know I am!
Even though I have to work on Saturday...ugh!
Oh well...I don't want to think about that yet!

I want to send a big thank you to all my sweet and wonderful
readers who leave the nicest and most sincere comments.
Y'all are the BEST! :)

  1. This is so cute! I guess I need to make a trip to the thrift store to look for a great frame. Where did you get the wire?
