Totally awesome jewelry holder!

I haven't always had a lot of jewelry, but for my birthday, I had some cash to use, so I went crazy at this one store where every piece was like $2! I got a bunch of stuff, but realized when I got it home, I had nowhere to put it.. there was no way it would fit in my small jewelry box.

I had seen someone turn an old door into a jewelry holder with hooks and rods to hold the different pieces, (I apologize, I don't know where I saw that site..) But that gave me the idea, so I was at the DI a few weeks ago and found this plain, tall wooden frame for a buck! I figured that would work. ( My before pics are on a different camera, so I'll post those when I find them.) First, I spray painted the frame black.

Once it was dry, I stapled a piece of plastic canvas to the back of the frame to hold my earrings.

I drilled holes in the frame, and used some hooks that already had the screws on them, so I could just screw them in. I put screws all over to hold all of my bracelets and necklaces.

I needed something to secure the bottom of the plastic, so I found a piece of wood in my mom's garage, and we cut it to the right size, and I painted it black. I screwed it in, and then stapled the bottom of the plastic canvas to it.

It turned out exactly how I planned, and looked even cuter once I got it hung and got my jewelry on it! Yay!!

It's SO nice to have it all off the top of my dresser!! Woo hoo!
I'm in the process of making several more of these for the poppiesatplay craft market this September 26th. There will be TONS of homemade crafts and fun things to buy, so if you're free that day, come check it out!

I think that frame is meant for calendars. I must have passed over close to a dozen of those at garage sales this summer. Now I'm kicking myself! What a great makeover!
