DIY Jewelry Tree

I love jewelry. I sell jewelry. And, I am always looking for awesome ways to display the jewelry at the home shows I do for lia sophia.

I also have a bit of a problem with my own jewelry collection... there is so much, and it is all stuffed away in a jewelry box that I often forget what I have.

I had run across this blog post from one of my favorite bloggers, Centsational Girl, and have since found these awesome picture of jewlery trees.





The last picture is not a DIY tree (of course it isn't... it is my favorite) but it is available through Red Envelope.

Ian and I were at Target yesterday and they had these paper trees for Easter to hang plastic eggs on in the dollar section ($2.50 ea.). They came in what looked like plant containers that live plants would be in, so I removed them from those, and put them in these composite pots, also in the dollar section (2 for $1.00). I filled the pots with decorative stones I had to hold up the trees.

No, they are not pretty, I am not thrilled with their lack of 'rustic-ness' and how small they are, so I may end up spray painting them... or just finding real 'trees' once the snow thaws.

But, for $6.00, I tried, and they may actually work this spring to display some of my jewelry at shows.

If not, I know a soon to-be-teenager who could hang her baubles on them.

  1. I love these! I have the red envelope one, which I love, but I really need more than 1. I may make one. :)
