Yard Sale Crafts, Part 2


Two weekends ago, my husband and I went yard-sale-ing. Last week, I posted part 1 (here ). I purchased several craft items. Last week, I wrote about the knitted bead bracelet kit I purchased for $.50. This week’s project is a Hanging Jewelry Organizer.

At a second yard sale, I purchased a dated apple print in an oak frame. I have been looking for an inexpensive large solid lightweight frame for this project for a long time. Above is a picture of the supplies I have slowly purchase to make a jewelry organizer for my wall.

Supplies pictured above:

  • Lace, I chose black & white with large loops
  • Picture frame
  • 1/2 yard of fabric, I chose a burlap
  • Paint
  • Cup hooks ( a package of eight – although mine only had seven)

Also used a foam paint brush, tape measure, glue of choice, and a screw gun.

Step One: Discard the undesirable apple print and the glass. Paint the frame – I used a black multi-surface acrylic paint.

Step Two: Reused the board that backed the print. Glue the fabric down. Determine the distance from the top to fit your necklaces. Mark the line you would like to glue your first row of lace. I determined that I needed two inches between rows of lace. (Be careful – when applying the glue line for the black, mine got a little uneven).

Step Three: Measure and drill holes for the cup holders, if your frame requires. Also, do not attempt to drill through the frame without using clamps and a barrier under the frame – not pictured. (I brought in professional help – my husband was a carpenter for twenty years.) Twist the cup hooks into the frame. Assemble.Jewelry Organizer - drilling the frame.jpg

Step Four: Hang and enjoy!
