I had seen a similar idea on pinterest and had thought about making one myself, but I hadn't got round to it. Then after I had made some Alice in Wonderland themed drawer handles for my sister's mini set of drawers (we couldn't use them on the drawers as she had just brought and fitted some handles) we settled on creating this jewellery holder.
Items: handles (you could always upcycle old ones you have or find)
a photo frame
fabric for backing
|Choose a fabric for your centre piece - we went with a red polka dot fabric brought from Guthrie & Ghani. Measure the back of your frame against the fabric, cut to size ensuring you can fold over onto the back of the frame.|
|Measure the fabric to ensure you don't have too much or too little of an overlap.|
|Cut to desired width - with this frame there were hooks that spin round to clip the back into the frame so I had to ensure they would move over the fabric.|
|Keep checking & measuring each side as you go round.|
|Once complete fit the frame back together to ensure it all looks and fits ok.|
|Choose ribbons, laces & trimmings to decorate your frame. These will hold light jewellery such as earrings which can be hooked over the top edge of the trimming. Play around with it first so you know how many trimmings you want and in what order.|
|Volia! Finished frame - being picky I think my lace is a little wonky, but overall I'm happy and it'll be great for hanging necklaces & bracelets & earrings, as well as being a decorative piece.|
If anyone has a go at this or has done something similar I'd love to hear from you!!
|The frame in use! Sorry for picture quality - my phone's not great for photos.|
