You will need:
Laser Cut Frames (I got mine at Michaels for just a couple of dollars)
Tulip Soft Fabric Paint in pink, gold and white
Tulip Paint Taggers in turquoise and yellow
4 Crimp beads
Tulip Sponge Paint Pouncer
Tulip Angled Paint Brush
Electric Drill with 1/16" bit
Step One: Add white paint to the blue and yellow to lighten them to pastel shades. Mix colors thoroughly before painting. Step Two: Use a ruler to mark stripes lightly with a pencil. Stripes should vary in width. There are seven total stripes. Step Three: Use an angled brush to carefully paint stripes. Take your time and alternate between colors. There are three pink stripes, two yellow and two blue. Step Four: After paint has dried, sand it down to reveal some of the wood underneath for a vintage "shabby" appeal.
Step five: Use a paint pouncer and white paint to add some soft white accents to the surface of the frame. Hit the paint with your pouncer, then hit the pouncer on your work surface a few times so you have a very small amount of paint on it. Gently brush it across the surface. If you add too much, use a dry pouncer to remove excess. Step six: Use your angled brush to add gold accents to the lines between each color. This does not have to be perfectly perfect, take your time, don't overload your brush and work slowly! Step seven: Use a ruler and a pencil to mark you drill holes. Drill them with an electric drill using a 1/16" bit. Step eight: Cut a length of beading wire to fit across frame and into the drill holes. Slide wire into holes and pull tightly, securing with a crimp bead. Do this on both sides and make sure the wire is really tight before crimping!
Add your earrings! You can add a third wire at the top of your frame if you like!
That's it! A inexpensive and easy way to turn your tangled mess of jewelry into a charming bit of home decor!
