Necklace Frames

I saw this idea a while back and have been talking about trying to create my own version for a while now. I bought the frames at a thrift store a month or so ago (99 cents each) and took Sawyer to the fabric store earlier this week. I was really surprised at how easy they were to make once I had all the tools...

First, I primed and painted the frames an off-white:

Second, I used adhesive spray to glue down the material to the backboards of the frames:

While I trimmed the excess fabric around the backboards and screwed the hooks into the fabric/boards my wonderful husband "antiqued" one of the drying frames. We used epoxy to glue the boards into the frames and we were done!!

I love them!! The one with the birds is for my mom for Mother's Day (shhh, don't tell) and the other is for my room. The hooks on mine are a bit low but the frame isn't super long...just a thought for the next time I make one. Super fun, super cute, super cheap!
