pretty jewelry holder {a DIY}

“If you do not hope, you will not find what is beyond your hopes.” – St. Clement of Alexandra

Today despite everything in me that aches….I hoped. This is what I did with a bit of that hope.

I’ve needed something to hold my jewelry for some time now because hides away in little boxes in the bathroom. “Out of sight, out of mind”, which means I rarely remember that I have it. So today, I wandered into our crafting room and grabbed a few things to create this.

Supplies I used:

Frame, paint and brushes, hot glue gun, black lace, white lace/doily fabric, cardboard.

That’s it!

How to DIY:

First, I painted the frame (you know me) black :)

Hot glue the fabric to the cardboard and then glue it to the frame.

Cut the lace then braid it.

Glue it to the cardboard.

Wa-la! Handmade hanger! (The frame itself is plastic so this lace will do the job, if your frame is heavier, maybe consider another option?)

Pin and hang jewelry!!

I hope you’re inspired to {create}.

Most importantly I hope you’re inspired to keep hoping “despite_______”.

  1. Sometimes I can’t get the association between lace and my Great Aunts out of my head, so I tend to avoid using it. I really like how cool and modern it looks in your project. It really gives it a lot of visual interest and is very pretty. I’ll have to change my opinions of it! Thanks for joining us at A Crafty Soiree!

  2. I have been reading your blog for a while tonight and am so touched. I have cried, laughed and been inspired. I don’t know you but my whole heart goes out to you and your family. I am so sorry to hear about your daughter. I cannot imagine how much courage you muster up just to face each and everyday. My prayers are with you and your husband. I also must tell you that I am so impressed with all your creativity. You have seriously just wowed me. :)
