DIY: Jewelry Holder

I spotted an old, distressed window frame a few months back and knew it had to come home with me.  I turned it into a jewelry/earring holder and it is now something I use every single day.


Here is the original window frame that caught my eye...


I added chicken wire to the back of the frame using a staple gun.  I then added wire picture hanger to the back in order for it to hang on the wall.


I simply hang the earrings from the chicken wire. You could also use opened up paper clips to hang necklaces.  I can't fit everything, but I hang my most favorite pieces for convenience and a little color!

I never realized how nice it would be to have my earrings organized as opposed to laying around mismatched in a jewelry box.  It makes it so much easier to remember what you have and to easier to change it up!


I couldn't resist how distressed and weathered the frame looked.  I like to think about the home this old piece used to be a part of and I feel lucky that it is now in mine.  Love it.
