I really liked how these frames were deep, because I had planned on hanging them on the wall, but changed my mind at the last minute. Nonetheless, I still liked the square shape and depth of the frames.
So, I spray painted them white which cheap Wal-Mart spray paint.
I picked up a large sheet of clear plastic canvas at Jo-Ann's. It was about $1. I cut two pieces to the size of my frame openings.
I put hot glue on the ledge of the frames. The space was very narrow but somehow it worked.
Then I stuck the plastic canvas on top of the hot glue.
While it was drying, I went to my jewelry and found all my earrings I normally wear (and some that I don't normally wear but should start wearing!). I collected both the hook kind and the post kind.
Once the hot glue was dry, I started decorating these frames....
As you can see, the hook type earrings just hang in the holes nicely, while the posts are secured with the backs.
I even added a few bobby pins in one empty space!
I just love it! I repurposed old frames, and with a $2 investment ($1 for spray paint and $1 for plastic canvas) I have a whole new jewelry display!!!
