I've needed a stand for my jewelry, but I don't have anywhere to set one. So I made one to go on the wall.


I'll hang belts and scarves and hats on the bottom, and my necklaces on the top branches, and earrings in the loops at the end of the branches.






 I'm not sure if I'm done with it yet, I think I want the trunk to be a bit thicker, so I might wrap some more wire around it. I also need to figure out how to hang it on the wall.  Smiley

What do you think?

I like it, very cool thought. If you are going to make the trunk thicker you could make a loop on the back with the wire as you wrap to hang the tree on.

this looks so cool! I've been wanting to make a mini bottle tree for my kitchen window but didn't know how to go about it and I think you're jewelry tree would be perfect for it! How did you make it? and what kind of wire is it?

Thanks everyone! It was really easy, the wire I used was about $7 for 200 ft at lowes, it was the smallest they had, not sure the guage but it's probably about 1/8 in thick. To twist it was easy but a bit time consuming, because you have to wait and let your hand rest. I did the whole tree with one helper this past weekend, back to back it might have taken 2 hours.

The way I did it was I cut 12 lengths of about 3 ft, folded each in half and twisted with the help of plyers. Then I twisted two strands together to all of them, and then twisted those together to make the trunk. At the top of the trunk I untwisted half of them to make the branches thicker.

One thing I used that made it a lot easier was my thick potholder glove. That took away the pain in my figures when twisting. Oh, and watch out for your eyes. I stabbed mine. Sad wear glasses! And don't have the top branches spread out when you're messing with the roots.

All in all it cost just a few dollars and with a few more adjustments and a touch of paint, I think it will look just as good if not better than anything you could get in the store.
