Introduction: Jewelry Tree

DISCLAIMER

Sorry that I couldn't post the process of doing this; I was just doing random things today and just figure I'd make something for my sister to hang all of her jewelry on. So I made this instructable with only the finalized photos. I hope the instructions below help you in creating one of your own & that you enjoy your new stylish jewelry tree.

Remember this is a good gift for friends that have way to much jewelry & your family members as well.
Anything that's handmade is always meant to last us our life; I hope this lasts you & you're children a lifetime!

Also I was wondering if all of you can vote for me here: https://www.instructables.com/contest/firsttimechal...

I would love to get the Apple iPad Mini along with many others; but I'm fine with a t-shirt as well.

Step 1: Jewelry Tree in Action!

Picture of Jewelry Tree in Action!

This jewelry tree is handmade using old metal hangers; and painted paddle wire.

The concept of making this is fairly simple;

CAUTION!

Be sure to wear gloves while attempting this for if you don't you will get blisters and/or cuts!

(I learned this the hard way.)

So be careful!

Wrap the base of two hanger wires together and feed it up to your desired height.

Constantly feed a new strand into it; wrapping them around as well.

For the limbs simply position them and fold them over and crimp them together to form a little loop.

Wrap the paddle wire around the entire thing (Except for the rooted base.).

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Grab a scrap piece of a 1 x 4 & your jig saw and cut a pattern into the wood; I smoothed mine out with a wire brush and got some old wood stain and rubbed on the sides and top.

~~~~~~~~~

I got some wood staples and hammered them over each of the wire roots; I then reapplied the wood stain to give it a better look.

Let it set for an hour or two before setting it on any other surface!

Now you have yourself a handmade jewelry tree that'll last a lifetime!

~~~~~~

You just saved yourself and your family about $15+ in cash.

Hope you enjoyed making your very own!

This is a great idea, thanks for posting this neat jewelry tree!

And it looks simple enough to duplicate that full instructions probably aren't needed anyway! I'm glad you share this.

I got starstruck just by looking at your comment, even more when I noticed who you were ^^

You clearly have me mistaken for someone else!

Not at all; I love your projects! Especially the knotted tree table; I still need to make that one God only knows how much wood I have out back ^^
