Brooches Galore!

Posted on


I collected a lot of brooches - some were my Mums, some were my Grannys - that I am unlikely to wear but am sentimentally attached to.  Why not try this - get a box frame (I chose black but you can always get a pine one and paint it whatever colour suits).  Stick a little bit of padding on the inside of the back of the frame and then cover it in a piece of black material (I had a left over piece of black velvet from another project that worked really well).  Arrange the brooches  - artistically of course - and fit it all back in the frame.  I tidied up the back by covering it in masking tape.


A great wall decoration and a great memory maker.  Also a nice thing to do for someone to help them reminisce about the times when they wore them. ♥

    What a great idea. I have a lovely brooch that my grandfather gave my mum. I would never wear it but it means a lot to me - so I'm off to the 'box frame shop' ......
