A Little Up-cycled Project

I purchased this ugly metal match box holder a couple of weeks ago because I thought the shape was really nice. The flower cart picture on the front, not so much.

The bottom needed help too!

I decoupaged some scrapbook paper on the front and the bottom.

I attached an old piece of broken jewelry on the front to add some bling. Now it is worthy to sit on a desk and hold pens, pencils and  “old lady eyes”.

It can also hang on a wall. There are many things (including a match box) that you can corral in this up-cycled holder! 

It was a quick and easy re-do that saved this vintage piece from going to the junk yard! It is now available at Moss Cottage Vintage in Fredericksburg, Virginia.
