Alright, so back story: I'm a resident adviser at my school. On move in day, I saw some girl with an interesting jewelry stand that was in the shape of a beehive. I was determined to make the same exact thing. I tried to find her later to see it so I can recreate it to a T but I never found her. My friend's birthday was today and I decided to make this for her. Since I just had an idea of the product, I basically winged it and, as Tim Gunn says, made it work Smiley

Finished product



Seriously, stroke of genius right here! I know the original creation had bee decorations but I didn't have any because I never found any at the store. I had my drawer slightly open and I saw my yellow purse clips lying there with the clips up and it resembled a bug to me.



Jewelry stand in action! Smiley



Bad pic, but the clips are most definitely fully functional Smiley Smiley



Dollar tree, what UP!!! Cheesy I used the metal backing of the filter. I only had 2



Materials used: styrofoam cone, styrofoam circle, lots of hot glue, a steel washing pouf, filters, garden wire, yellow purse clips, and spray paint that is styrofoam safe Smiley

Boldly going where others have probably been.

Very cool! I like it a lot.

Being a resident advisor must be a lot of work. I was really immature and did my best to drive mine crazy when I was a freshman.

@LiveLong: Thanks! Being an RA is alright. My kids are pretty good because I'm in the Honors hall but they can get loud at times. My ex-residents are having a fit though because they can see how much I'm liking my new residents so quickly as compared to last year Tongue

@Jonah: Thanks! I would I could say the beehive idea was completely organic but it isn't. The bees however are. I do believe that is the definition of stroke of genius Smiley
