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.
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).
