When I buy vintage jewelry for art, I try to get items that have flat backs. Flat backs are easier to glue on things like canvas, for instance.
Sometimes though, the pieces have a curve to them so they don’t lay quite right. This is where two things can come in handy.
- hot glue
- another surface besides canvas
Recently, my friend gave me a small white decorative chalkboard that she was going to put in her yard sale. It was cute and had a lot of potential. I painted it a sort of whitewashed green.
The chalkboard was exactly what I needed to be able to use some curved jewelry items I’ve been wanting to use for awhile.
I was so excited to be able to finally share these beautiful pieces with someone. Ready to see it all finished? Guess who it’s for? (Ha ha.)
I’m loving how it turned out. Looks like I need to start watching for some more small chalkboards. They’re super fun to makeover.
Thanks for reading.
