jewelry project

Problem: lots of necklaces, all tangled up in my small jewelry box, and laying all over the place.

Available supplies: old window stored in the attic, tacks, glue gun

Purchased supplies: cork board squares

Now: I have decoration for over my dresser and a lovely new way to organize my necklaces. It has become a artwork piece while serving a great purpose. I had the idea and did it while my husband was at work, and when he came home I showed it to him. He was thrilled, because he finds my necklaces all over the place, hanging on whatever I could find. I think I might want to place some scrapbook paper behind the glass, but I haven't decided yet.

Totally love it. Can't really imagine why I waited so long to do it.

Excellent. I love when you can repurpose random things and make something beautiful (and functional) out of it.
