Chic Repurposed Jewel Cross DIY

What woman doesn’t like a little glitter and bling?!?  I know I do, and love to find ways to reuse & repurpose bits and pieces of vintage jewelry that are a little tattered and maybe missing a stone or two.


This cross tutorial is so easy, using relatively common items turned out to be an elegant addition to my office.



·         Wooden Cross


·         Brass Filigree


·         White Paint


·         Clear or White Glitter


·         Broken Vintage Rhinestone Earring

·         Scrapbooking jewel embellishments

·         Rosary Chain

·         Glue

First thing is to pain the cross and brass filigree white.  Once the cross is dry adorn with glitter, then attach the brass filigree.  Let those dry.  Now you can adorn with the vintage jewelry piece of your choice, I used a vintage AB Rhinestone Earring.  Now you can adorn your little cross with little scrapbook jewel embellishments, I used clear and pearl.  To hang the cross I used a bit of vintage pearl rosary chain that I used to carry in my shop.


 
As always, Happy Crafting!

 
                          

 
 

 

Chic Damask Magnetic Memo Board, Dollar Tree Crafting

Hey ladies, well I’ve been rummaging around the the Dollar Tree again, and yes I had to sneak in three bag of stuff!  I found the cutest little silver colored metal trays there that look like little fancy serving trays.  They aren’t large, the oval tray which I used in this tutorial measures 12″ x 8 1/2″.

Supplies you will need:
Metal Tray
Scrapbook paper
Buttons, vintage jewelry – or what ever you wish to create the magnets
Magnets
Glue – Elmers and E-6000
Mod Podge
Coordinating Ribbon

This little memo board is so… crazy easy.  In order o coordinate with my new little craft space I chose this black & white damask print Scrapbook Paper, which I bought for 1/2 price at Hobby Lobby.  First you will need to cut your paper to fit into the flat part of the tray, once this is cute glue down with Elmers.  I let mine dry for a day and then covered with Mod Podge.

For the shabby chic magnets I used pieces of vintage jewelry, a velvet ribbon rose and buttons that I had on hand.  All I had to do was glue a magnet to each one using the E-6000!

Once your little tray is dry, turn over and glue your ribbon to the back (I used E-6000 for this part), tie and big pretty bow and it/s ready to hang!  I used a Shabby Chic
1 1/2″ satin ribbon that I already had on hand.

Have A Happy Week and Happy Crafting!
