Necklace Holder

Happy Tuesday again!!  Well I had some time this morning and so I thought I'd do this.  On my many hours of searching the wonderful talents out here, I came across the idea of making a necklace holder.  I thought it was about time to do something as I just had mine hanging from a few push pins.  I know, very sad.  But, all better now :)

I came across this item at Goodwill for $1.99 and loved the detail and knew instantly that this is what I wanted to use it for as I have quiet a few blank walls in our master bathroom.  So, here is the before picture.  Notice the detail.... now mind you, this feels like a plastic so didn't know how this technique would work but you never know until you try right?


So I then added some antiquing paint, rubbed it off and this is the effect I received.  I kinda like it :)  Then I cut a piece of burlap that I already had and mod podged away and tucked it underneath the frame.  Added a few small hooks and Ta Da!!

I definitely have some more detail work to perfect but that's what it's all about!!  So total cost of this cute project???  $2.00!!!

Have a wonderful day and enjoy!!

Thanks girls :) Love to try new things and it's getting easier for me to picture things in my head now on what I want to do with most of my little treasures :)
