i've been so excited to get this diy finished and up on my wall! i saw a similar diy on pinterest using lace to hold earrings and thought that it would work perfectly for all of my necklaces.
i found these two freaky photos in my local flea market, and the guy seemed so desperate to get rid of them that i got them for a total bargain. i quickly removed the photograph and put the glass and backing board aside (for another project i'm sure!). then all you need is some string/lace/wire to hold all of your jewellery, a hammer and some nails.
once you have your empty frame, you just need to work out how many "lines" of string you want to have and mark the spots on the underside of the frame (find the groove where the glass would have slotted in). a really long thin frame would be great for more lines, but because all of my necklaces are quite long, i stuck to just two.
now the fiddly bit. hold the frame upright so that you can hammer in the nails to each side of the frame. i've tried to photograph this step the best i can, but like i said before use the groove where the glass would usually slot in to make it easier.
i then tied the string onto each of the nails making sure to pull it really tight. depending on how much jewellery you're putting onto it, it will sink in the middle it there's too much weight.
and that's it! i then just clipped all of my necklaces and a few bracelets onto each line and hung it up. i used to hate the morning battle of untangling necklaces, and this way i can display all my favourite pieces too. i've almost finished the corner of the bedroom where this has been hung, so when i can i'll post a few more photos to show it off properly.
