How To Make A Simple DIY Jewelry Frame

DIY time! I was browsing through the archives of the blog when I realized how long it’s been since I’ve posted a DIY tutorial.
I made this jewelry frame that holds my bracelets and necklaces on a random summer’s day last year and was a bit confused when I noticed I had never showed it on here before. This DIY is super easy and takes about 30 minutes if you’re not painting the frame!
