Today I’m going to show you how I transformed a picture frame that I got from Hobby Lobby into a DIY earring organizer with chicken wire. If you’ve got an old photo frame that you just can’t let go of, this would be the perfect DIY for that.
I got this wall art on a total bargain steal at Hobby Lobby years ago. I fell in love with the intricate details and vintage-feel of the frame. I just knew I was going to do something with it, I just wasn’t sure what I wanted/needed.
Screws or industrial strength glue
Sandpaper (if you want the vintage look)
First, you’ll want to remove the hanging hardware from the back of your frame. Set the hardware to the side, but don’t lose it. You’re going to need it later.
This color looked great, but it wasn’t exactly what I had envisioned. It looked too pretty. I wanted to create a vintage and worn look, so after the paint was dry I lightly went over the frame with some sandpaper. Doing that gave it the look I was going for.
I flipped the frame onto the back and attached the chicken wire with a staple gun and made sure the chicken wire was cut bigger than what I needed. I stapled one in every four-wire hole and cut the excess chicken wire off with wire snips. Be careful handling chicken wire! It is exposed wire; it’s very sharp and will cut you! Wear gloves to protect your hands from cuts.
I am so happy and pleased with how this project turned out and I can’t wait to put it in my new apartment! What do you think about this DIY earring organizer made from chicken wire?
