So I took a regular frame, one of the ones I use for my clocks, and turned it into a jewelry organizer. I know there are a lot of these out there on blogland. But I hope you'll keep reading because I haven't seen many like these. I see a lot of these in store displays and sometimes at craft/art shows and fairs. So I went ahead and made my own. I like the open-ness of the frame. It doesn't distract from any of my jewelry. I wanted to be able to put more than just earrings and bracelets, so I just drilled a screw in over there and hang my necklaces down the side. The bottlecap earrings and the necklace with the big butterfly are both done by my friend Jenni. She's very talented.
And this below was another piece of wall art, though mine is propped up because as mentioned I am dealing with a small space, that I use to display/organize. This also was done one night while babysitting. I knew P&A would love to pick out their own fabrics, ribbons, and buttons for their own boards. Theirs actually do hang on the walls in their bedrooms. I'll have to get pictures. P's is hot pink, lime green, and black. A's is turquoise blue and lime green. They are so fitting of their personalities. We even used tools that they could control - a hot glue gun (with my supervision of course) and instead of those crazy staple guns, Staples office store has some staplers that are kind of automatic in themselves in the regular aisle and worked awesome! Here's a pic of a smaller one I did that night. We also found these cute buttons. I let the girls each pick one for theirs, too. I think P has one that says Peace maybe and A's says girlfriends. I'm sure they'll correct me if I am wrong.
You can also see on mine I save some of my favorite placecards from my friends' weddings (we'll see if they read my blog!). It's always good for ideas. :)
