Rhinestone Wreath DIY Instructions by Debbie Del Rosario

One of the most exciting details I learned from Debbie about her gorgeous rhinestone wreath was:

"Not one piece has been ruined in any way. Some of those pieces belonged to my mother and I would never do anything to hurt them. Each piece still has its original pin, clasp or clip and was put on a plain styrofoam donut covered with silver ribbon and sprinkled with silver dust. They were applied with E6000 glue, which I have used numerous times; and, they can be popped off at any time with no damage to the piece. I have actually removed some of them and worn them and put it back when I was done."

What better means to display a collection of antique or vintage or heirloom jewelry? I can't imagine anything more treasured than a wreath covered with heirloom pieces suspended over the edge of a vanity mirror. This is truly a special way to keep memories alive. Thank you for sharing, Debbie.
