DIY: Jewelry Tree

Taylor Williams

Finding a solution to organizing and displaying jewelry is always a challenge. A jewelry holder that is functional and adds design to a space is a definite win-win!! This DIY is a simple way to create just that.

So here's what you need:

  1. A Branch- bought or found
  2. Gold spray paint (optional)
  3. Mason Jar with lid
  4. Rocks or Sea Glass
  5. Pliers and/or scissors

Finding a branch is the trickiest part of this DIY. The branch can be any size or shape, but the limbs must be sturdy enough to hold up to the amount of jewelry you wish to display- so keep that in mind when you are hunting for the perfect branch!

Remove excess limbs from your branch with your scissors until you get your desired shape. Then trim the base of the branch to fit into the jar you’ve chosen.

Place your branch on a paint tarp, shake up your spray paint and completely cover your branch. You can use any color you would like or leave it natural!

 

While your branch is drying, poke a hole in the lid of the mason jar with a sharp pair of pliers. The lid should be thin enough to peal back the metal to make the hole bigger. The space should be large enough to snugly fit the base of your branch.

Place the rocks or sea glass in the jar and fill it to the top

Stick the longest part of the branch through the hole in the lid, sliding it up until the majority of the base is pushed through. 

Place the branch into the rocks, pushing and twisting until it is deep into the jar. Screw on the lid, until it is tight- making sure there is enough rocks in the jar to weigh it down.

Cover you branch with necklaces, bracelets, and even rings. You can even hang pictures with string on your branch creating photo display!

Happy Making!
