Okay, so I know it's just a DIY and I do them often...nothing big about DIYs but there's something you should know about why I do these. Yes, I like to make things look pretty and organized. However, besides that, it's my stress buster..mostly when I can't go get some "retail therapy" (read Shopping) done. haha!!
So you might just see a few DIYs coming up soon since my exams start next month! :P
Annnyyywayyyy...moving on! I've wanted to do this one for a while now and finally had all the stuff I needed to make it! yay! Don't get me wrong, I'm not the in-your-face-display-everything kinda girl...okay maybe just a little. But I'm more the "out of sight. Out of mind" kinda girl. So it's a great way to know what you have so you don't end up buying the same thing again. (been there, done that!)
Here's what you'll need
1) A photo frame (with a stand to make it sit upright)
(size- depending on choice/how many stud-earrings you have)
2) Some sheer fabric, not too stretchy. I chose net.
3) Hot Glue gun
4) A pair of scissors
4) paint and brushes of choice
Pull the picture frame apart so that you're left with just the frame.
Mine was an ugly gold shiny one so i painted it metallic pink on the front side and back for a neat finish.
Keeping the glass from the frame over the fabric0net of choice cut an inch around the glass.
Turn the frame over (front/face facing downward) and stick the net on the back so there are no creases, with a hot glue gun or industrial strength glue. I think Hot glue gun works best. Once it dries, cut of the excess sticking out around the sides with scissors.
Cut out the strip where the stand is attached to the back of the frame. I painted mine on both sides to give it a nice smooth finish. Place the strip in place so that when the stand it opened, it sits evenly on a platform and then once you have that, glue it in place.
Step 5: Optional
Embellish it and you're done!
