Decorating your home is always a fun process, but as you get into the fine details of things, the costs can really add up. From designer fabrics to expensive accessories, costs for a single room can soar. So why not use something you already have? Maybe you have old or broken jewelry just lying around, or a special keepsake that you don’t want to part with. Consider recycling those pieces and turning them into something beautiful with these easy DIY projects.

Beautiful Bouquets
Fresh flowers are great to have around, and when tied into the décor of a room, they can really make a statement. The only problem is that they can be rather expensive. Replacing flowers every couple weeks really adds up. That’s where jewelry comes in. Put those old broaches and pendants to use by forming them into stemmed flowers. Simply attach each piece to floral wire so that it stands up like a flower. Then wrap them together with floral tape, and you have a beautiful bouquet that lasts forever.
Candle Jewelry
Candles are another great home accent. According to Houston Gold Exchange, a company that specializes in fine jewelry and luxury watches, not only do create a nice aroma, but candles come in all different sizes and colors, making them a perfect accent piece. Why not give them a bit more flare. Old bangles are perfect for placing around the base of a candle. You can even stack them for a multitude of colors. Just be sure to always use a jar candle, and make sure that the bangles aren’t too tight around the jar.
Napkin Rings That Sparkle
Napkin rings are a great accessory to any dinner party, but they often come in drab colors like black and brown. Why not skip the tradition and make your own? Create napkin holders with a simple ribbon and broach. Just slide the ribbon through the back of a broach, and you have a gorgeous new napkin ring.
Custom Artwork
According to Houston Gold Exchange (www.houstongoldexchange.com), simple things like cameo pendants and large broaches can be paired with shadow box frames for 3d artwork that’s one of a kind. You can also create an eclectic piece with a multitude of pins and earrings. Start by wrapping the back of a picture frame in fabric, then clip off the backs of the jewelry and hot glue them for a unique art piece that shows off your unique style. For a more personal touch, why not frame a cherished necklace or ring? It’s the perfect way to memorialize a special keepsake.
Enhance a Picture Frame
Turn a cheap frame into an expensive showpiece with your old jewelry. It’s really easy to do, you just need a hot glue gun. Begin by removing the backs and ear wires off your old earrings and pins. Then glue them to the front of your frame. You can even break apart strings of pearls or the beads on necklaces and bracelets and glue them on as well.
Wrap a Wreath
This one is super easy and a fun way to show off your unique tastes. It starts with a plain foam wreath, and ends with a decked out piece, ready to display. Simply wrap the wreath in fabric or ribbon and then glue on your favorite pieces. Drape strings of pearls, or wrap a vintage necklace for an elegant touch.
