Picture Frame Jewelry Display

I know it's been done a few different ways, but none of them worked for me so here is my version of the picture frame jewelry display. I use my display for shows and depending on my stock, I like to rearrange it. This frame lets me do that with ease, using pins to change it up. Plus as a bonus I can hang it vertical or horizontal. This project is very easy and can be finished in a couple hours.

Step 1: Supplies

  1. Picture frame (sand and repaint if you like)
  2. Muslin
  3. Felt
  4. Foam core board
  5. Spray adhesive
  6. Hot glue and gun
  7. Scissors
  8. Pencil

Step 2: Step 1

Remove glass and picture frame cardboard back, this is our pattern so keep it for the next steps.

*As you can see from the picture I chose to repaint the frame. I did this the day before. Please be sure to let it cure overnight so your frame won't be scratched and the fabric won't get paint on it.

Step 3: Step 2

Using the cardboard from the frame as a pattern cut the batting out and trim it 1/4" smaller, then cut out the foam board the same size as the cardboard pattern, the felt 1/2" smaller than the pattern and finally, the muslin 1 1/2" larger than the cardboard pattern.

Step 4: Step 3

Spray adhesive the foam board and place the batting on top making sure it sticks but the glue doesn't come through.

Step 5: Step 4

Lay the batting side face down on the wrong side of your muslin and hot glue the fabric onto the backside, being careful to make it snug and create triangle on the corners to make it clean. Do not trim excess.

Step 6: Step 5

Now hot glue the felt onto the back to cover all those ugly edges, being careful to not let the glue show. It doesn't have to perfect just clean so the threads don't show or fray.

Step 7: Step 6

Gently place back into the frame and push those holders down to secure. You can hang it up and use it like a piece of artwork and change it around anytime you want.

    My daughter and I made one each out of quite large picture frames, with some thin polystyrene and wadding under the material :)
