DIY Jewelry Holder, 3 Ways! – Made with a Wood Frame

Frames can be used for more than just artwork and photographs; they can also have functional uses, such as holding a mirror, corkboard, or chalkboard. Another great idea is to use a picture frame to create a fun and easy jewelry holder.

In this tutorial we are going to show you how to do just that, three different ways. You can use an old picture frame that you have lying around, or if you are looking for something new or trying to create a certain look, you can search our website for a variety of wood frames. With us, you can custom size it to any proportion you want.

Version 1:

Materials

  • Wood picture frame of your choice
  • Wire cutters
  • Chicken wire
  • Staple gun with staples
  • Framing tape

Create a clean workspace and then flip the frame over, facedown.

Now, using wire snips, cut the chicken wire slightly smaller than the back of the frame.

Every few inches, staple the chicken wire into the wood frame.

Using wire snips, trim off any excess wire or sharp pieces.

Tape the edges of the wire down using framing tape, to prevent the wire from scratching the walls.

use tape to secure the edges of the wire to the frame

If you plan to hang the frame on the wall, add something to act as a spacer so that the frame stands proud of the wall.  This will provide room between the chicken wire and the wall to hook on jewelry like earrings.

Version 2:

Materials

  • Wood picture frame of your choice
  • Picture frame hanging wire
  • Staple gun with staples

In this version, we are going to hang three rows of framing wire from the frame to create a small earring display.

First, measure the width of the frame and cut strips of wire slightly larger than that measurement. Use a staple gun to staple the wire to the back of the frame.

Version 3:


Materials:

  • Wood picture frame of your choice
  • Plastic hardware cloth
  • Scissors
  • Staple gun with staples

Create a clean workspace and flip the frame over, facedown. Cut plastic hardware cloth slightly smaller than the back of the picture frame.
