I saw this jewellery rack in a mail order catalogue and thought I can make that!
This original from Cox & Cox is £32.
So I did.
Mine cost about £7 - Bargain!
Here it is:
A Picture Frame (You've cracked the glass of an old picture frame? Perfect! Waste not, want not.)
A Staple gun
SandpaperI needed pliers to get the old backing pins out.
A ruler (optional - to line up the hooks)
|I got this beauty at the Hospice Charity Shop £4!|
|Mine was an old frame and had these nasty-looking sharp backing pins. Hence, pliers.|
|Remove the glass and lay out the backing board from the frame onto the fabric.|
|Staple it securely, stretching the fabric constantly to avoid wrinkles.|
|I made mine pretty secure.|
|Now onto the frame: rub down and paint (I used a mat emulsion).|
|Then get your hooks. I liked these L-shaped ones.|
|Screw them on. Make sure they are tight and won't turn about.|
|I lined them all up using a ruler but you might want them more random.|
|Then re-attach the frame (those pesky pins!)|
|The two bead necklaces on the left are my own creations, too!|
