What Can You Do with Cork and Old Keys?

An awesome craft project that’s what!

The keys belonged to my granddaddy.  He was a dog breeder (Beagles) he used them as hunting dogs.  These keys belonged to his dog pins that he had outside. 

These keys hold a special place in my heart and instead of them sitting in a drawer somewhere I decided to display them.

1 8X10 picture frame

white paint

8X10 roll of cork

glue

I painted the frame and then glued the cork down to the card board backing of the frame.  Once the cork dried (a couple of hours) I glued the keys down…waaalah!  Instant art!

The keys hung on the ring that is now in the center.  I am not sure what the smallest key was too but it was on the ring so I am sure it has something to do with his dogs.
