Wear it? Frame It.Wednesday, November 05, 2014
As a very young girl, my grandmother gave me this pin. It belonged to my late great-grandmother, and even to this day, I love it but find it a bit too 'mature' to wear. This is the perfect solution: framed, I get to think of her each time I see it -- every day.
Very simply, I purchased a shadowbox (spraypainted the frame gold), then hot-glued a pretty, complementary piece of scrapbook paper to the cardboard, and hot-glued the pin to the paper. I think hot glue is a good option here because when I decide to do something different with it, I can just pop the hot glue off the back easily.
