I have been dying to have a better way to display my necklaces lately, and so when I went home to Iowa last week I made sure to scour my favorite thrift store for some great big empty frames to rig up as new jewelry storage. I found two great ones and now I'd like to share with you how I did it!
Here's what you need:
cup hooks (available at hardware store)
Start with a beautiful empty frame. Mine came with a hanging wire on the back already, but if your's doesn't have one then use a wire and a stapler to add one to the back.
Use a marker to mark where you would like to add the cup hooks. I didn't measure, but I spaced out the hooks about 3/4" on one part of the frame for big necklaces and put them much closer together on the other side for chains.
Drill the holes.
Screw in the cup hooks.
I always started them by hand and then used a pair of pliers to make sure they were in securely.
This is the boring part, but it is almost over!
Once all the hooks are in the frame, hang on the wall and then hang your necklaces!
And there you go--jewelry storage that doubles as art! Enjoy!
