Whilst I had my staple gun out I decided to tackle another project.
I was going to make a brooch and earring holder out of a frame and some lace.
I got this wooden frame from an Op Shop for $10 and I spray painted it black.
I liked this frame because it had a lip on the inner part, I was going to use this as a base to staple my lace.
I also didn't want the backings of my accessories to scratch the wall, so I think the base helped with this.
Standard stretchy lace from the fabric stash.
I roughly cut it out. It didn't have to be perfect, especially because it's stretchy.
I started folding and stapling it into place. I did a LOT of stretching, as I didn't want my heavy accessories to drag the fabric down.
I only realised after that my staples were too big and some of the wood was being damaged! Eek!!
I'm not a fussy person though, so I just used black paint to hide them :)
Finished, with the damage visible.
Finished, with the damage painted over.
I love that I can see all my brooch and earring options! Of course, this frame wasn't big enough for my whole collection ;)
I used these 3M velcro type picture stips to hang it. This means I can take the frame off to get to my accessories.
I hope this inspired you a little bit!
