Trying to organize the mess we call accessories…
So much like my other crafty stuff, I had this window lying around as well. There is a curse to being crafty. You buy stuff with “plans” of using it somehow, but sometimes it takes YEARS to figure out what the heck your gonna do with it. So… I have been needing a place to put ALL of my jewelry. I have a lot of jewelry. I keep it all, because you never know when you’re gonna need it.
Tiny Nails & Hammer
Ruler & Pencil
First you have to kick out the middle of a window. Just don’t get cut. Or do that at all, actually. Mine already had the middle missing. I used the ruler to measure out one inch increments on all four sides. I used shorter nails at first, but I realized thin longer nails worked better and could take the tension. The short ones popped out too easily.
Once all the nails were around all four sides, I went back and forth and wrapped the wire around the nails as tight as I could. Surprisingly, you can’t actually get it that tight. And it didn’t take that long, not near as long as the flipping wreath. But I like the way it turned out.
Here are a few pieces of my jewelry hanging. I have lots more, but I wanted it to still look good and I didn’t want to make you jealous.
Yea, not much to it. But I did learn, you really can’t get the wire tight, drive the nails in deep so they won’t pull out when you wrap the wire. It’s so easy! Wish I hadn’t put this off for like a year. Don’t you hate that! When you’ve put something off because you think it’s going to be annoying to do and it totally wasn’t.
