A collection becomes a display {how to make a jewelry/brooch wreath}

HOW TO 09.18.14
Wouldn't this be cute with Christmas pins? Collecting takes a while but the result is a beautiful display. Using a styrofoam wreath, thrifted brooches, earrings, pendants, etc. my daughter and put together jewelry wreaths (a fun spin off of brooch bouquets) for a sparkly fun display. Attach using straight pins or hot glue. Materials include: pins, brooches, earrings, buttons, costume jewelry.
Difficulty: Easy
We prepared the styrofoam wreath by using DecoArt's Magikote. This creates a sturdier base.
We used straight pins to secure jewelry pieces. I also like that I can snag a brooch since they aren't glued down (but hot glue is also an option).

    Now I know what I can start making from the extra pieces I got when I bought jars, yes jars, of jewelry at the local Goodwill. I bought 2 entire mason jars for 7.99 each just for one piece of jewelry and the jar. one of the jars was a vintage blue one.
