1) I googled "picture frame templates" then picked out one I liked. Next I printed it off then cut it out and traced it on a scrap piece of 1/2" plywood.
croll saw to cut it out. I wanted to give it more area to hang earrings so I made the inside cutout larger than the original template. I actually had a 8"x10" piece of canvas in my shop so I just held that center and traced around it.
Let me pause and explain my next step. If I were to take my mesh and attach it directly to the back of my frame, then when it's placed on a wall an earring wouldn't have any clearance to hook onto the mesh because it would be mashed up against the wall. So to solve this....
4) I grabbed my router and set the bit to 1/4", which is half the depth of my piece of wood, then I went around the inside perimeter and created a 'step'.
6) Now I was able to take the mesh square and insert it into it's place. To attach it to the frame, I used my staple gun.
7) I first laid out my marks on where I wanted the hooks to be placed. To make sure they ended up straight, I pulled out my tape measure and simply made a mark at every inch (so I ended up with 11 hooks).
Total Cost: $12
