Frame Up

frame upI don’t know about you, but this long and cold winter has kept me at home and indoors more than usual. The good news is I’ve gotten lots of little projects done. Winter is a good time to clean out closets, drawers and cupboards and donate gently-used items to Goodwill. It’s a win-win situation for everyone.

frame upI love jewelry and I have quite a collection of earrings, so weeding out the old was on my to-do list. Since I wear them every day, I like to have them easy-to-see and be able to grab a pair quickly.

For this project you need:

  • A 12” x 16” picture frame
  • Piece of burlap fabric approximately 14” x 18”
  • Cardboard to fit inside the frame    
  • Stapler, scissors

frame upCut the cardboard to fit inside the frame using the glass as a template. Cut out the center, making a 1” mat. I just traced around the ruler.

Staple the burlap to the cardboard frame/mat and trim off the excess fabric. Insert into frame. The open weave of the burlap allows you to easily hang many pairs of earrings.
