Pottery Barn Key Display

This project was super easy!  I went over to Pottery Barn the other day and found this set of 7 keys for $19.  I thought that was a pretty good deal.  {Here is a link to the keys}.  I love keys and I have collected several sets over the years.  These keys are definitely meant to be displayed.
I have them in my living room right now, I am sure that they will find a new home soon!
I just had to show you the nest I made out of burlap left overs...I just gathered some of the burlap threads into a circle and put the birdie in the middle.  It is kind of hard to see it in the glare of the glass.
I love the color of the keys!  Matched my walls perfectly.
This is a frame that I have had for a while that had 3-5"x7" pictures of my boys in it, then I had a baby girl and it didn't work anymore for kids pictures.  {the frame is from Hobby Lobby and measures 31"x13 1/2"}
I actually filled in the picture opening with foam core {a staple in my craft room} and then layered white cotton fabric over it before I wrapped it with the burlap.
I will most likely add some other element to the frame...when I do I will post it.
