Teachers! Did you use this instructable in your classroom?
Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
Step 1: What You Need:
This Project Only needs a few items.
You will need:
~A frame of any size (Should be wood)
~Either screening or a piece of material
~A staple Gun
~Staples for the staple gun (duhhhh....)
~2 small nails (Not shown in the picture)
~A tack hammer (Again, not shown)
~Scissors (Not shown in the picture)
About the screening: I would recommend using screen, but since I didn't have any to make this, mine is done with jersey knit fabric (Just a cut up old tee)
Step 2: Frame
In this case, the thicker the frame the better. That way you don't have to be a champion sharpshooter to get the staples actually all the way in the frame. It should be wood. Remember, you can always paint it!
So now turn over your frame and lay the fabric wrong-side down (if you have a wrong side) over the back of the frame.
Step 3: Stapling
So Now Pull the fabric or screen taught (The tighter it is, the better) and staple all sides. Especially corners, because they tend to pucker.
Step 4: Cut
So now, just cut off the excess fabric. make sure not to cut TOO close to the staples. Turn the frame over now and then to check how the front is looking.
Step 5: Flip It and Nail It (wow That Sounded Dirty) ; )
Now just flip the frame over. you now have a place for your earrings, but now you need a place for those bracelets and necklaces. Al you do is take 2 nails and nail them into the top corners of the frame. Now you can hang those jewels!
Step 6: Now Just Use It!
Great! all done!!!
Now just fill and enjoy! Any comments or questions are appreciated.
