After being inspired by a cute metal peacock jewelry stand at Urban Outfitters, I decided I could make my own Smiley



Sorry I'm just kinda holding it.. I intend to add ribbon or some sort of hanger thing (ideas?). I think I could use it for necklaces, too. Even if I don't end up using it for earrings, I like how it came out, period.

Painted on cardboard with acrylic paints.

That's cute! what did you use to make it? I was thinking you could use a business card holder that looks like a miniature plate stand. It'd look like peacock legs. You'd probably have to put the danglies in higher though.

thats cool. you could attach a pop can thingy to the back (the thing you pop to open) and then hang it up with a nail or screw.

Just cardboard (from a package I got that has just been sitting around waiting for me to throw it away, haha!) and acrylic paint. I printed out a picture of a peacock and used it for reference and stenciling.

And I may use that business card idea.. I was trying to think of alternatives to hanging it, too Smiley
