DIY Jewelry Organizer// Homemade Christmas 6

Welcome to day 6 of the 12 Days of Homemade Christmas! Here's another one of my favorites. I designed this priceless craft for my sister last year. Instead of hitting up the usual craft stores, I ventured into some thrift shops. And boy did I luck out. I managed to snag two antique silver dishes for $1.00 a piece that I used for this project. I also snagged a few more candle sticks for $1.00. If you're looking to stay within your budget for this project, hitting up thrift stores may be your best bet.

Most of my crafts include the same materials. I try to plan it this way so that I spend as little money as possible. It can be a bit tricky, but the dollars that are saved as a result of this meticulous planning  are totally worth it.

For this project you will need:
Two decorative dishes
One candle stick 
Spray paint (color of your choice)
Sealant
E-6000 glue


This is a very simple project. First, use the E-6000 to glue the candle stick to the dishes. Be careful when lining up the candle stick. I rushed through this part and as a result my dish is a bit lopsided. No bueno :( Allow the glue to dry--when working with E-600 glue, I typically let it dry overnight just to be safe.


Next, spray the stand with your spray paint. Try to spray in bursts rather than holding the button. This will keep the paint from dripping. Wait about 15-20 minutes, and then reapply a few more coats. Once the paint is dry, apply a few coats of sealant. 



Once that dries you're good to go. See, I promised, super simple. As always, if you decided to give it a go, swing by and let me know how it turns out.


Be sure to stop by tomorrow for day 7. 

Merry Christmas from our home to yours!

  3. Is that a new header on your blog? I swear I haven't seen some of those photos before... I think the bottom dish that you chose for this project is really pretty, it's just an unusual design!
