Ruth has been fascinated with the little hair bows that I bought from one of the gals at church and because I am trying to be a bit more frugal I looked up how to do them and of course I found ribbon on sale and discounted flowers & pretties that can be put on "alligator clips" and of course because I couldn't find my own glue gun (it's packed somewhere) I bought a $2 with some glue sticks. Now because I made so many I needed a fun way to hang them and found a cute little picture online using a picture frame & some ribbon. So while at the goodwill I searched out a picture frame. The one I found was less then desirable but I knew with a coat of paint it would be perfect. I slapped on the ribbons and I am not done, I am going to add fabric to the back and make it a bit more sturdy. But it's great for now.
(the hair stuff in the image were created by me, Ruth loves 'em and wants me to make more. I think I am going to be adding these to my Christmas baskets this year)
Now because I wanted to keep my necklaces up higher and out of Ruth's reach I found a fence like spring form thing and knew it would work for my necklaces, of course a nice coat of black paint helped bring it all together with all the other items I got from goodwill.
(do you notice I don't have any bright colored necklaces anymore, Ruth has lost them all...I need more color!)
So what do you think? For under $8 I got a cute way to display my necklaces & Ruth's hair clips and a new place to store my other jewelry. I am sooo happy with how they turned out, even if the paint job isn't the greatest, I know I will get better in that area.
