I have to admit, the past couple of days have been very busy around here! Last week I got a call from a Gift store here on Okinawa, Japan with the confirmation that they would like to have my jewelry displayed for sell. I was so excited and my entire weekend was based of off me making displays and jewelry.
I had made a jewelry frame display before, and my store display was based of it. So I started crafting…
This is what I used to make my Jewelry frame displays:
- one Frame with a nice pattern (20″ x 16″ inches)
- Liquitex Basics white acrylic paint – 1 tube
- Americana Acrylic paint (color sand) – 1 tube
- one sponge brush
- a 5mm think wood board 30x40cm (11″x15″ inches) in size
- 2 brown wooden sticks 5mm in diameter about 1meter long – (39″ inches)
- one Sandpaper block
- Drill with a 5mm drill-bit
- 1 tube E6000 glue
First, I made sure that the wooden background boards fitted into my frames, my next step was to align the holes for my wooden sticks, where my jewelry is hanging on. I am using resealable plastic bags for my display!
After I figured out how I was going to hang my jewelry on the board, I marked each spot with a marker and drilled the holes with a 5mm drill-bit. Sanded it down with a sandpaper block and started painting everything.
I used 1 tube with 3/4 of the sand color, mixed it well and applied one coat on everything.
While the frames and boards were drying (12h minimum) I cut the sticks down to 2″ inches (5cm) each, and sanded one end around the edge to give it a smoother look. After the frames and boards were dry enough to touch I glued the sticks into the holes and let everything dry for at least another 12h.
The next day I put everything together and luckily the regular frame backboard that comes with each frame was fitting right on top of my assembled board I had made, so it looks very nice even looking at it from the back! Yay
I apologize for not taking any step by step images, I really didn’t have time to make any. But you can take a look at my jewelry frame display DIY which was basically done the same way, except the wire part!
