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

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).

    So precious! My Mother passed Feb. 1, 2015 and she had a lot of costume jewelry as well as some really nice things. I think I could make one of those for my bedroom and think of her everytime I see it! Thank you for sharing, I truly appeciate it! God

      @Betty Sides Hi Betty, sorry about your moms passing. You could also use her jewelry to embellish a frame and put her picture in it. Hope you're doing well

    Awesome Idea! I should try this just to see all the jewelry I have stored away!

    Take a look in the thrift stores. Sometimes they have large vases filled with costume jewelry. Lots and lots of projects in a find like that.

    I just go to yard sales and collect all year if the price is right. Going kinda crazy now because it's winter and very few indoor yard sales - sometimes an estate sale has costume jewelry cheap.

    Beautiful wreath. My granddaughter made her very lovely bridal bouquet with brooches. Of course she couldn't throw it! :-)
