I saw a jewelry holder on thenest.com. I thought it was so cute that I talked my craft rescue hero (CRH) into letting me poke 15ish holes in the wall to make one. It came out like this... let's just call it lackluster. I blamed it on my lack of jewelry.
great idea on Johnny In A Dress... but my CRH vetoed it. So, I was pondering. I ran across fabric in my office left over from my Mother's Day project, which can be found here! I thought an upholstered look would turn out well... and here it is!
Want one of your own??? Here's how...
-Hardboard (mine are cut to 8x10)
-Fabric (cut a little larger than your 8x10)
-Trusty hot glue gun
-Empty picture frame... no glass, no back
Once my boards were cut (thanks CRH!) I started the materials layering process.
Place it in the frame. Hopefully it is a tightish squeeze... it should be!
I marked dots where I wanted to place my cup hooks, which I spray painted black.
1) Trying to screw a hole in the back
2) Trying to screw a hole in the front
3) Praying for God to strike eight well placed holes while I waited there
I ended up using a hammer to make several small nail holes in the front side and then put in my cup hooks. My challenge was making the fabric hole large enough to not swivel the fabric while getting the hook screwed in tight. I finally figured it out... just took some practice and finesse.
I really love how it turned out! I just need more jewelry to fill it out! Perhaps another post's project!
The whole process took me about 30 minutes... over the course of three days!
