Brooch Ribbon Necklace

Steps:3
Treat your sisters and girlfriends (and yourself) to jewelry that shimmers with style. Start with a handful of inexpensive costume pieces -- brooches and earrings with openwork designs -- and give them a new-old coppery patina using spray paint. Then link them together and add pretty pink ribbon. No one will guess you didn't break the bank.
Materials
  • Costume brooches (we used 6, about 2 inches wide) or earrings (we used about 5 pairs, 3/4 inch to 1 1/2 inches wide) with openwork designs, from Bijoux Way
  • Wire cutters
  • Sandpaper
  • Clear nail polish (optional)
  • Copper spray paint
  • Paper towels
  • 1/4-inch jump rings
  • Needlenose pliers
  • 1 1/2-inch-wide silk ribbon, cut into two 24-inch lengths

Greetings Tree

Steps:2
Each card you receive is like a little gift, carefully chosen by a friend or family member; as such, it deserves more than a passing glance and makeshift presentation. Suspend cards-turned-ornaments from dried winter branches in a bucket, vase, or other vessel; you don't need to add any water to enjoy this nature-inspired card display.
Materials
  • Dried branches
  • Bucket or vase
  • Similar ribbons: various shades of brown and metallics
  • 1/4-inch hole punch
  • Similar beads
  • 28-gauge wire
