So this is basically a best out of waste type of project with actually no real investment, using pretty much everything i already had at home (i will elaborate on that in the steps).
Step 1: Supplies !!
1) A wooden basket (farmers market) I used the one i got with my fruits.
2) Paint: Any 2 colors (preferably bright, unless you are into the classic chic thing, white would look great too)
4) Sand paper
5) Hammer & nails
6) Wrapping paper ( u can also use a nice piece of cloth with foam)
7) Used Knobs: 2 nos
8) Empty glass bottle
9) Old shot glasses: 3 - 4 nos
10) Drill Machine
Step 2: Lets Prepare the Base !
Also If the basket isn't perfectly new...its okay. The rough, rustic look adds to the jewellery. I almost didn't want to sand it at all. (personal choice though)
Using a sanding block is the right way to sand, but i don't have one so i use this method. It a technique (or a trick i learned somewhere) to cut the sand paper a little bigger than the size of the sturdy object of your choice, and to sand using it as the base. I used a moisturizer bottle. Method: Wrap the paper around it, hold it firmly and sand.
At this point, you might need to hammer down some nails/ or glue to make the box more sturdy (the box we used was not built to be strong or stable.)
Step 3: Take Out Your Paintbrush !
I painted the outside & the inside of the box with 2 different colors. keeping it simple.
Let it dry.
Step 4: Analyzing & Marking !!
Make 2 more if you want to hang on the nails.
Step 5: The Bottle!!
Using soap & water, remove the label. Scrub. Let it dry.
I painted 2 coats of the same color on the bottle. let it dry after each coat. I used vinyl silk emulsion. It might not be the best choice, but that was the one i had.
Step 6: The Back!!
Cut it the size of the base and stick.
Alternatively, you can use a cloth stitched with foam backing on the base.
Step 7: Assemble & Display!!
Start with the knobs, Make a small hole in the wrapping paper making sure it is at the exact same place on the wooden base. Fix them up.
Using a glue at the base of the bottle, stick it to the box on your marked position.
Again using glue, stick the shot glasses on their desired places.
Admire your work & get all your jewellery to be placed on it quick.
Hav fun !!
