Men, you may not be interested in this one. Perhaps you are. Jeremy thought it was pretty cool. In a more than slightly uninterested until it was hanging on the wall, kind of way.
I have been looking for a way to hang my 'fashion necklaces'. Not the nice ones, I have a jewlery box for that, but the big fun ones, that get jammed into the jewlery box and make everything a tangled mess. I found something for sale that was pretty cool, and then decided to make one myself. Since I had luck with the travel photo project (http://www.karafrank.com/2011/07/travel-photos.html), I thought I would try again.
I bought an old, solid wood, antique frame (from one of my favorite stores...http://www.artandarc.com/). I sanded it and then painted it white. I added a nail to each side to ensure it was stable as it was certainly not new.
And then I framed my dog. Because he's handsome. And deserves to be in a frame.
I marked of places for the jewelry hooks at 1 inch increments inside the frame....
And then asked my dad to drill small holes on those lines so I could put in my cup hooks (purchased at Target). Thanks Dad!
One by one, I screwed all of the cup hooks into the pre-drilled holes, with my hands. Very easy. A child could do this part.
