The other day I accidentally broke one of my favorite frames. It was a large frame with gold trim and held one of my favorite Frank Sinatra quotes but c’est la vie. While I couldn’t rescue the frame I kept the large thick cardboard piece that supported the quote behind the glass and used it for this fun project! Doesn’t it make you feel better when you can use pieces of items that you don’t want to toss out? Granted it’s just a really good piece of cardboard, but it’s a good piece of cardboard I happened to need. Cardboard, a section of one of my favorite pieces of fabric, a chicken wire frame and key hook came together to create this DIY Bathroom Wall Jewelry Holder and I’m thrilled with the results. This girl hangs in my master bath entryway and it brings a ton of cheer to the space. Grab the simple and wildly affordable DIY details below.
I’m slowly sharing sections of our home as we update them and the master bath has fallen down the list, but we do plan to paint it a very soft lavender one day! The lavender paint will compliment my new jewelry holder. I do feel the need to note my more delicate pieces are displayed on a small jewelry tree stand on the bathroom counter. My custom pieces from Stella, Tiffany’s and gifts from the husband require a section of their own but my costume jewelry gets a new fun place to hang!
So let’s get to work.
- Cardboard (for the frame and chicken wire backing)
- Fabric of choice
- Wood glue
- Staple gun
Chicken wire frames can be purchased at most craft stores but you can also purchase wire of choice and attach it to a frame using a staple gun.
Measure your frame backing (cardboard) and cut just slightly larger than the size needed to cover the visible section and give room to staple down without notice.
Wrap your fabric around your cardboard and staple, be sure the fabric is pulled tightly.
Using the staple gun attach your fabric covered cardboard to the backside of the wire and frame.
Using wood glue (or glue of choice) attach a key holder to the bottom of the frame. Be sure to select a key holder that fits the width of your frame or make adjustments as needed. I purchased this basic key holder at Home Depot.
Allow the key holder to dry for a short while and begin hanging your fun pieces!
Now my fun jewelry, brooches, dramatic earrings and such get a new fancy home on the bathroom wall. I really like having this option to free up space in the bathroom area. I previously had a very large jewelry box stand which I liked but it took up a bit of space in a not so large bathroom. As I mentioned, the master bath update is far down the home update list but this has me more excited to begin painting the room. We’re tackling the spare bath and then finally completing the nursery (don’t judge) so stay tuned for those projects!
Happy crafting and may the odds be ever in your favor.
