Jewelry Holder Picture Frame

Saturday, August 4, 2012
I like necklaces, but I'm not very good at accessorizing. Since I've started my 3rd year of medical school, the most prominent accessory around my neck is my stethoscope. Still, I figured that if I had a better way of actually seeing the necklaces I own, I might be more likely to wear them. 


I picked up a picture frame from Christmas Tree shops, some wood knobs from Lowes, grabbed some scrap fabric and paint from my craft box, and got to work!

This project was really quick! First, I painted the front of the knobs with some light blue paint. Then I took out the glass and covered the back of the picture frame with the fabric. Next I used a drill to make three holes and attached the knobs. Then I used some painters tape to keep the fabric attached to the back of the frame. (This is probably not necessary, but I did it anyway.) Finally, I hung some necklaces and put a hair clip in the corner. That's it!




Much better way to display and utilize necklaces... plus, the fabric matches our bedroom curtains!

  2. so so cute and perfectly done!!! I should really try to do something like this too! I know what you mean about not really wearing necklaces during "work" hours.... I swear you don't notice anyways with the white coats and work attire anyways.... and I have to admit that I have broke about 3 bracelets when attempting to wear them with outfits as well.... and then I start thinking about how they must not be clean anyways... shoot! SOOO when I have time away from work THEN I am all about wearing jewelry! Anyways, I hope you are doing SO well!!

  7. This is such a great idea and it turned out beautiful! Question: did you glue the fabric to the picture frame glass? And then drill holes through the glass and fabric to screw in the knobs? I've bought frames to make this :-)

    1. Thank you! I actually removed the glass entirely and drilled holes through the backing of the frame. I stretched the fabric over the backing (cardboard/wood stuff), secured it in the frame itself, then drilled the holes. It's tricky with the fabric because it wants to bunch, so I used a combination of scissors to poke a little whole in the fabric, then a drill to go through the backing material. Hope that makes sense, and good luck!
