These are all made with scraps of crown molding that my boss was going to throw away.  I took the pieces not really knowing what I would do with them. 
These ended up being gifts to my mother for Xmas.  She loves country folk art stars, and she is obsessed with doing laundry (I know weird right?) 

I finally discovered crackle paint WHERE HAS IT BEEN ALL MY LIFE!!! OMG I LOVE IT!!  The hangers I made from stainless steel wire and beads.
the star plaques are "any-time-of-the-year-ornaments" and the laundry plaque is especially for her to hang next to the washing machine to laugh at every time she does laundry!
hope you like.

Wow!  I love those!  That is such a cool idea for scraps of molding!  How did you attach the wire hanger?  Really great!  Oh, and what guage wire?

Hi there sharonjoy!
I made holes on the sides of the molding where I wanted the wire to be with my Dremel....dabbed E-6000 into the holes with a toothpick...than inserted the wire into the holes.
The wire is 19 guage stainless steel..I love manipulating it with swirls and squiggles.
