The other day I revealed my big closet makeover. Today I am going to show you how to make your jewelry tree from items that are can either be found inexpensively or items that you might have on hand. First let me say I have been a cleaning demon. So when I see something that has potential, I put it aside.
Here are the things that you need to have to create this gorgeous jewelry tree. First look around your house to see if you have a container or a vase that will work as the holder. I had one on hand, so I was not money on that. You can easily find a container at thrift stores, dollar stores or yard sales. Next go out in your yard (yes I said in your yard) and look for a branch that will fit your container. We cut ours bigger than we need so that we could work on shaping it. Next take the branch and spray paint its silver. You can choose any color you want, but I went with silver. Next look for some gravel or rocks to place inside the vase to hold the branch in place and to keep it falling. In my cleaning, I came across a half bag of aquarium gravel that I had left over when we had fish, so that is what we used. After that, you will need either paper clips or safety pins to place your jewelry on the tree. Having my jewelry in my eye view reminds me of what I have, and I wear it more often now. I used this tree for my rings, watches and bracelets. My necklaces went on another project that we made. So when are you making your jewelry tree? What are some ways that you have used to store your jewelry?
P.S. The other thing that I went out and bought for this tree was the silver can of spray paint.
