As you know, I have a tendency to pull canvases off their frames. This leaves me with some empty frames.
I have stretched new canvas over a few of them, but I had this little one and it was calling out to become something brand new, like this earring holder:
I slightly altered a free cut file from birdscards.com. You can get the instructions on altering it in this quick video:
Once it was cut, I spray painted the transparency:
I also sprayed the frame. Although, I ended up using some gesso to fill in the sides and little holes.
Once the paint dried, I decided that it was a little too plain for me, so I added some texture. First with Super Heavy Gesso and my Pattern Strips stencil...
And then with Puffy Paint!
I let it dry overnight.
In the morning I glued the painted transparency onto the back of the frame and I added some tape as well.
Then I placed the frame on a padded surface (so as not to hurt the dimensional paint on the front) and attached a small metal hanger
One detail that helps the earring holder hang well (slightly away from the wall to give the earring hooks room) is the addition of foam on the bottom edge of the frame:
And that's it! Super duper easy earring holder made from trash!
Thanks for stopping by!
