Hi, best.day.ever. readers! I'm Janelle - a follower and servant of Jesus Christ, devoted Army wife, barefoot nature and animal lover, keeper of the wee shop Gipsy Wind Handmade, and Elizabeth's cousin-in-law. ;) She asked me to share a little something with you all while she's enjoying some time away this week/weekend, so here's a DIY bit for making a jewelry keeper from twine and an old wooden picture frame.
Do-it-yourself decorative jewelry keeper!
- old wooden picture frame, any size
- jute twine
- small nails
(I apologize in advance for having no photos from during the process!) I used an old wooden frame without backing (thrifted for less than a dollar), and hammered eight small nails (four on each side) at an angle into the back, near the inside edge of the frame. Taking a length of the twine, I tied one end of it to one of the top nails and wove the twine between the nails in a boxed zig-zag pattern. After tying the twine on the last nail, I used the hammer to bend the nails in (or out, depending on their direction). This is to prevent the twine from slipping off the nails and to allow the frame to lay against the face of the wall (though I am considering putting small foam blocks on the frame's inner corners to bring it off the wall just a bit... it'd make hanging the earrings a bit easier!).
