I recently broke a mirror. A big, full length mirror. Is it more bad luck if the mirror is big or am I still looking at 7 years?
Either way, the bad luck hasn’t set in yet because I was able to salvage the frame and make it into a beautiful place to store my jewelry. Not only that, it’s a fun piece of wall art.
The project is simple and can be done with really any picture frame or frame from a mirror.
What you’ll need:
- a frame
- fishing line or wire
Step 1: Remove the back and any glass that may still be in the frame. For this design, you want the wall to show through.
Step 2: Lay the frame face down on a flat surface. Measure along the back where you would like each line of wire or fishing line to go. You can make all of them even or make some closer together for earrings. It’s totally up to you. Draw a line with a marker at each point.
Step 3: String the fishing line across the frame lining up with the marks you made before. Make sure it’s pulled as tight as possible. Put a drop of glue on the mark to keep the fishing line in place.
Step 4: Once the glue has dried, staple each piece of fishing line or wire into the frame. This will keep the line secure and give it extra support to hold the jewelry.
Step 5: Hang the frame wherever you would like. Hang jewelry along the fishing wire.
Step 6: Gaze lovingly at your hard work.
The cool thing about using fishing wire in this project is that from a distance, the jewelry appears to be just floating within the frame.
