Jewelry Hanger

Howdy Y’all!  Over at  Practical Scrappers I show you how you can turn a dollar frame in to a 

Jewelry Hanger. 

After seeing my daughter earring tree, I just knew I could make something way more fun and exciting.  This is one of the cutest and fast crafts I have came up with. I am so happy to share it with everyone. 

For supplies and more step by step instructions check me out at Practical Scrappers

To finish the project I created paper beads and made earrings and bracelets with them.

I hope the next time you see these wood frames you won’t pass them up just thinking you can paint on them the possibilities are endless. Oh and I hope you enjoyed my jewelry holder.

Thanks Janice

I am so excited to announce that I will be serving on the Design Team for a brand new challenge blog called S.W.A.T. which stands for “Scrap Warriors Advanced Training”.

Twice a month there will be two challenges called “Drills”, which will be posted on the 1st and 3rd Saturdays of the month. A winner will be chosen from both Drills at the end of the month, and if you participate in both challenges you will double your chances of winning.
On the 2nd Saturday of each month our Lieutenant will take you through Basic Training. This training is to build up your skills and to teach you some new tips & tricks. With each training session you will be challenged to use your new skills for the chance to be a Featured S.W.A.T. Girl.
On the 4th Saturday of the month our Captain will push your skills to new limits with Special Ops Training. Be prepared to go “off the page” with altered items, 3-D projects and step-by-step tutorials.

Today over at Practical Scrappers, we are giving you a bunch of different ways to use toothpicks on your projects for our Frugal Finds. These ladies are so talented and something I would have never thought of other then cupcake picks and flag poles but it was fun creating out of my box.

Here are my projects. To be honest I was going to paint my toothpicks but you can pick up colored ones for under a dollar, so easy to buy them done and the colors are great!

Hope you enjoy the projects be sure to go to and check out the other amazing and crafty ways to use toothpicks in your crafting at Practical Scrappers

Hope you got a few ideas. I enjoy sharing mine with you.
