Do you need a place to keep your jewellery but can’t afford to hand out the cash? Then I have a solution for you! This project cost me only $15.00 bucks! I had everything on hand except for the spray paint and large wooden beads but maybe you have that too?
Things you need:
- Large and smaller plate
- Vase at least 6″ tall
- Small dish or bowl
- Spray Paint
- Black Marker
- Large wooden beams – I got them at Wal-Mart
- High heat, hot glue gun
- All – Purpose craft glue
- Lace & string of pearls
- Tiny flowers
Okay, now arrange the two plates and vase like a tower.
I marked the center of the plates with a black marker. Once you are happy with your arrangement, hot glue them down. To make sure everything holds, make sure to use the high heat glue gun. I also arrange and glue down the large wooden beads around the top dish rim. They are to hang your necklaces from.
Next step is spray painting!! I went outside but made sure it wasn’t too windy so I didn’t waste all my spray paint. I recommend to let each coat dry according to the spray paint can, 1 – 24 hrs, but I did 6 hrs or so. It took two coats.
Once dry completely, usually overnight, it’s time to decorate 🙂 My favorite part 🙂
I used some old lace and string of pearls to wrap around the seams of the bottom base and top dish to hide the hot glue gun rim. To keep with the victorian theme, I grab some matching flowers and buttons to decorate and balance everything. These glued down with regular all-purpose glue. I let dry over night.
Your project is complete! You have a place finally to keep your jewellery. I hope you had fun making your jewellery holder!
I hope you have an awesome rest of your day!
