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!

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.

    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 ^^
