Love 2 DIY on the Weekend: Upcycled Jewelry

Yea it's Friday once again! And time for another great DIY for you to try. I found this fun blogger on our Upcycle team on Etsypreneur and she was very enthusiastic about posting her tutorial for us! Her name is Cynthia and is a brand new blogger, she even added a little surprise at the end, so please show her some Upcycled love by following her blog so she isn't quite so lonely!

Junk Art Frame DIY From Costume Jewelry
I made a recycled, junk art frame to share with you today.  With a bag of junk jewelry, a glue gun, and a pair of pliers I made this little frame in about an hour.  Maybe more (time) because I fuss with my projects...but if you are aggressive you can complete your own in no time at all.

This was my original bag of costume jewelry and blank picture frame.  I selected a thrift store frame that I acquired for .25 that is metal covered with paper.  A wooden frame would work, too.

To see the finished product please head over to My Junk Inspired Life! And have a fantastic weekend!
