Isn't it frustrating when you're in a hurry and grab the perfect necklace to complete your outfit, only to find it tangled? Or worse, you can't find it at all. This necklace nightmare unfortunately has transpired many times for me, which is why I began searching for an organized, aesthetically pleasing solution. I found a plethora of fun methods to display jewelry in ways that prevent tangling, while also accenting my bedroom decor. One method, adopted by many chic boutiques, is the jewelry tree. This happens to be my favorite...
-Heavy wooden block or vase
Time: 15 minutes
Step Two Create your base. There are many ways to do this; you can put the tree in a tall, slim vase, or you can submerge the branch into a block of wood. The idea is to keep the tree firm and grounded. I drilled a hole in a block of wood, the same diameter as the base of the branch. Then, I filled the hole with gorilla glue & put the base of the branch into the drilled hole. Hold till dry.
Optional Spray paint your branch & base - it gives it a cohesive look, so there aren't conflicting wood colors. Pick any color you'd like! I'm a fan of white and silver.
Step Three Decorate! With jewelry untangled, you can add it to the branches in artful ways. Now, with jewelry in plain view, you're less apt to neglect old pieces.
For this one, buy (or create) a small wooden
planter. Carefully use a hot glue gun
to glue the rocks together with the branch

As you can see, the possibilities
are endless! Though the look can be eccentric,
it's always fun to spice up your decor for a little
change of pace.
