I think it is a law in the DIYer book that if you want to be known as a DIYer you have to make a jewelry tree. Now there are all sorts of jewelry trees, I made mine with what ever I had available. I borrowed a fake branch from another display in my apartment and painted it white. I formed it into the shape I wanted (it has wires inside). Then I put it in a small pot and filled it with old expired paint, and let sit to dry (it took a few days) and THERE! I have a jewelry tree. The green stuff in the pot is just yarn.
Would you try it? Do you want to buy mine? just saying.
P.S. this would make a fantastic Charlie Brown Christmas tree!
