Cork board with a twist

My collection of old tapestries has grown slow but steadily. They are all different and come from different places but they all have one thing in common, they were framed. I really need to start using these frames for something soon or they will take over the house.
For me, nothing triggers my imagination more than having too much to do. So that a new use for some of these frames came to me during Christmas perorations was no surprise.

After a trip to my local second hand store I ended up with a gigantic cork board that was only god for shopping into smaller pieces. I sew parts of fabric together and decorated with lace before attaching it to the cork board with staples.

The frame was sprayed with sort of a brushed gold color before I put everything together
I also made my own push pins by gluing beads on top of draw pins.
