Getting tidy but messy on Paint Party Friday

This week for the decluttering & creating series we are going through our jewelry.

Option #1, the ready made: a frame with hooks on the wall. This is my pretties corner at home. The first hook has white, black and grey necklaces, the second reds and pinks, the third browns and oranges and the fourth purples and blues. I´m wired that way. ;)
 Option #2, the crafty version: a year ago I made this necklace hanger for Tati. You can click here for that post or here to read the decoupage steps we used on the first week for the pencil holder.
Now you are asking yourself: "What can we do with the pieces we no longer use?" For example:
Step 1: make some jell-o. Delicious, nutricious and really easy to make.
 Step 2: open the cardboard box.
Step 3: cut the pieces.
Step 4: get your choice of acrylic paints. Paint a base layer, let it dry. And now ... let´s get messy and do some finger painting. :D
 Step 5: poke holes on the finished piece. Eyelets will make them tidier. Use a necklace as a handle or as embellishment.


Share your jewelry corners here in the comments sections so we can travel around the world in a fashion tour! :)

Clever! I may pick up a few "Junk" pieces at a garage sale just to do more :) Happy PPF #4 Robin Panzer Art Studio 33

That is such a cool idea--love how the piece ended up and the sort of casual look the beads give it. I gotta try this...

My daughters hubby just made a necklace holder so similar!! Wonderful job!!

Love this idea! I don't wear jewelry, so don't have lots to store. My seventeen-year-old drapes all her necklaces over a lamp, which is a great look...

I love thinking of jewelry as art, to be hung on walls or used on mirrors, etc. Thank you for sharing.
