I’m getting more organized this year and that includes making something to display my jewellery where I can see it, so I’ll be prompted to wear it more often. I made two frames, one for my mom and one for me, and it cost me approximately $20 for both. This will alternate if you already have some of these items or you can find a better price. You can also compensate for the cost if you make additional ones and sell them. (If I were to sell the ones I made, the larger one would be $35 and the smaller one $30, simply b/c it was painted).

What you will need:

THRIFT STORE:
Vintage and/or carved wood frames (Bible’s For Missions $2.00 each in the wharehouse, ask clerk for assistance, prices may vary)
Vintage Door Knobs to match frame (you may need to repaint them to match)

WAL-MART:
Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Gold (or another metallic of your choice) [the hardware cloth already comes in silver, so repaint it to match your frame as desired]
OPTIONAL: Hot Glue Gun (depending on the thickness of the base of your door knobs, they may not screw on all the way b/c of the tight space)

HARDWARE STORE:
Hardware Cloth (smallest roll was approx. $7.99)
1/8″ or 3mm Peg Board (smallest size and you can ask them to cut it down to desired sizes for you)

DOLLAR STORE:
Acrylic Paint
OPTIONAL: Sand Paper (My door knobs needed to be sanded down in order for the paint to adhere)
OPTIONAL: Hot glue for glue gun

PAINT STORE (that sells wallpaper and gives samples):
FREE samples of wallpaper (if you cannot find desired pattern or colour, you can choose a plain white with or without embossing and paint yourself)

GARAGE/ TOOL SHED:
Pliers
Snips
Hammer
Electric Hand Drill
Drill Bits (for Pre-Drilling the holes for your door knobs to prevent your frame from cracking)
Bits (to push screws into your frame for door knobs)
Square bit (to hammer staples into frame if they’re longer)
Industrial Staple Gun
Industrial Staples
Electric Saw or Chop Saw (to cut your boards to desired length if they don’t do it at the hardware store)
Measuring Tape
Work Gloves
OPTIONAL: Handy Assistant knowledgeable in construction (My brother Stephen helped me)

RUMMAGE:

WAL-MART:
Krylon Aerosol Spray Paint in Brilliant Silver & Brilliant Gold (or another metallic or your choice)
Elmers Spray Adhesive
Elmers Glitter in desired colour (I only saw gold and silver, you may have to go to Michael’s or a craft store for other colours)
Garland
Wreath (Styrofoam for inside or between front door and screen door; wire for outside, because it will be exposed to the elements)
OPTIONAL: Grapevine (Give more shape for wire-framed wreath, otherwise you’re buying more garland)
OPTIONAL: Buy Two sets of Christmas lights in desired colour(s) matching the garland you’re using. (You can also buy them used, but colours may be limited)

DOLLAR STORE:
Rubber Gloves
Craft wire (usually green covered)
Decor or Ornaments (I used 2 packs of small disco balls, two 3-D Stars, and Silver Chain)

THRIFT:
Used Christmas Lights (be sure to test them to make sure they work before leaving the store)

RUMMAGE:

Handi Mandi TV – Art with Make-Up (Time Lapse)

Got some make-up palettes kicking around, collecting dust or not getting used. Get inspired and create your own art.

I used make-up as a medium back in high school for one of my bi-weekly projects (create a small piece of art every two weeks on top of major projects). I didn’t come up with idea myself, as I saw someone else do it first. I wanted to delve back in and see what else I could come up with.

This art piece has a lot of warm colours, but I look forward to doing some next week in some blue/green tones. i have some great eyeliners that should make things interesting.


If anyone tries this out on their own, please feel free to upload a video reply, I would love to see what you all came up with.
As always if you have any requests, please feel free to shout out in the comments below.

Here are some more Macrame styles I’m using to experiment the following:
*Micro-Macrame: using fine small cord (and equally small beads)
** Beading (on the center or outside strings)
***Half-Knots or half a square macrame knots (choose one side to knot to determine how it twists like a DNA strand)

Continuing with some more DIY Jewellery, I hope you’re enjoying it as much as I am. It’s so gratifying to make something for yourself. I didn’t get a chance to mention this in the video, but I have a few friends who will be ordering some of my bracelets from me for their family members as stocking stuffers. Yeah! Get the ball rolling enough and it may lead somewhere . . . (note to self: make sure to use steering, lol)
