Best out of Waste ...... Showcasing my junk !!


"Out of sight and out of mind" ...... that was the fate of some of my junk jewelleries. But I was happy to re-discover these 'priced' possessions of mine during my Diwali cleaning. I had been looking out for a jewelry stand/ holder for a long time. Most of those I spotted were either out of my budget or not of my taste.
So I decided to make one myself ......

Materials Needed

1 A Photo frame - Since I was experimenting, I went ahead to the Dollar store to get a cheap one
( 1.06 $ with taxes to be precise)
2 Gunny Bag - Used the reverse side of an empty rice sack ( 0$ + the joy of Recycling)
3 Cardboard - Can use any old packing, I used the pizza one. (0$ + joy of Recycling)
4 Acrylic Paint & Paint Brush - I used my old ones
5 Glue - Any glue you have at home

Do it Yourself


1 Cut the cardboard to the size of the photo frame.
2 Cut the gunny bag and paste it on the cardboard to cover it.
3 Frame it in the photo frame.
4 Paint some motifs on the frame to decorate it. (You can use glasses/ beads etc to decorate it)
5 Let the paint dry.



J says it's nice ......but let me know what you think about it.
