PROJECT: Framed Keys

I wish I could take credit for this idea, but it comes by way of my friend, Liz. I love old keys, and went nuts when I spotted a set of framed keys that she'd put together, so I decided to make one for myself.
The project just couldn't be easier! Take a piece of cardboard fitted to the back of a photo frame and cover it with the paper or fabric of your choice.

I used a piece of linen and some lace accents. Then place your covered cardboard in the frame behind the glass.
Place your old keys on top of the glass until you have a pleasing arrangement. When you're happy with the appearance, use a strong, clear glue to adhere the keys to the glass. I like Goop.
Voila! A new piece of art, easy and fun!

Until next time,
