I can’t remember where I got the idea for this… Most likely Apartment Therapy. But wherever and whenever it was that I originally saw this, the project immediately went onto The List.
Here we see the picture frame acquired from Goodwill, some size 10 crochet cotton, brass tacks, a brass finding for hanging the frame and a lace-weight crochet hook (can’t remember the exact size I used). I also used three small hooks, that aren’t in this image lol.
I decided to go with a simple net crochet pattern that, after stretching over the frame, ended up looking something like a honeycomb pattern. The three hooks I screwed into the wood of the frame and hung my necklaces on. Originally I had wanted to attach the small brass finding to the center of the wood on the back of the frame to hang the frame, but I realized that if I took some of my necklaces off of one side, the whole thing would list to one side. So I used two push pins and hung the frame on them.
Next week I hope to get a post in about my mini umbrella light fixture!
