It's been awhile since I've done any blogging or crafting! Life got a bit hectic there! We've recently moved into a new, bigger apartment! With packing and moving and wrapping up the end of the year at work it just got busy. Today's post is just a very quick craft, but honestly it's one of my favorites.
With the new apartment, we
each got our own closet. I was VERY excited by this because I'm kind of
(read VERY MUCH SO) a neat freak. My boyfriend on the other hand is not
at all. When I got to the new place I was trying to figure out how to
organize everything in my own closet. Clothes were pretty basic, hanging
or folded in assorted piles. My jewelry was what I was struggling with.
In the last apartment I had a makeshift earring holder that I never
really loved. It was cheap and plastic and broken. So I knew it wasn't
coming to the new place.
I found an old frame that was
empty and the glass broke in the move. I spent a few minutes
disassembling the frame (removing the glass, taking off the tabs that
held the back in, etc). If you do have a frame that you want to use that
uses those little metal tabs to hold everything in, just bend them back
and forth a few times and they'll pop right off.
Next I took twine and just tied string across the frame to form lines.
tah-dah! It was done. It was really simple and for me free because I
had the frame and the twine. If you have to pick those up though, you
can get a cheap frame or an expensive one for however much you like and
twine, which a big roll that has helped me with a bunch of projects cost
I just hung up my earrings. I used the small
command hooks for my necklaces. Again, this was a super simple, super
effective project. I love how it looks.
of the new place is put together with a few things here and there to
work on. The rest of the bedroom will be put on hold while we wait for
our new bed. It's organized now but we're not putting too much on the
walls until we get the new bed.
Hope you enjoy!
