Using An Old Frame And Chicken Wire To Hang Vintage Jewelry

Try Hanging Your Vintage Earrings And Costume Jewelry On A Chicken Wire Frame
Here is another cool way to display vintage jewelry. And it will work for collections of all kinds as well. Pick up an old frame, paint it your favorite color and than attach chicken wire to the back of the frame.

And instantly you have created a very effective hanging display for jewelry, tools, keys and all kinds of small objects.

  1. I love the chicken wire with the old frames. I have an old wooden frame painted a distress white with some wooden rose decals added to it. I thought of putting some padding, lace, material to make the famous message boards, but so much would prefer the chicken wire for that bit of rustic feeling. You can use some old clips to hang pictures, or even some of the older gemmed brooches, earrings & etc would look good with the chicken wire hanging little trinkets from it.

  2. I love the idea of framed chicken wire as hangers for jewelries. It also serves as a decoration, I love it. Very creative project. girls jewelry boxes
