Spring Crafting: Necklace holder

Spring Crafting: Necklace holder

Everything has its place. And with my embracing jewelry adornments lately, I needed to give them a proper home. Since I was not impressed with the standard tree or body form necklace holder, I had to make my own. Rustic and pretty, soft pastel and cold iron.

Start with a cheap vintage painting with a sturdy frame. Look up the artist online to make sure it’s not worth a million dollars then remove the painting within.

Have a handy person cut some wood to fit in the frame. Thank them. Select a dainty color from behind the locked gates of your local hardware store and set the wood up for spraying in a well-ventilated area, like the handy person’s backyard.

Spray your wood with at least 2 coats of color and 2 coats of a topcoat. Monitor the wood for curious bugs who may want to land and huff the chemicals. Let it dry thoroughly.

Get yourself a fancy, rustic hook. Like this moose hook.

Screw the hook to the wood in the frame. Marvel in its beauty.

Be on the look-out for #2 in this jewelry holding project: the earrings holder.
