DIY Bracelet Tree

So it turns out that I am rather good at making jewelry. Bet you never saw that one coming, I sure didn't! I have been slowly building a large collection of bracelets and don't have anywhere to put them. I had the idea to make my own bracelet holder and since we had some scrap wood in the garage, decided to give it a try.

Off we went to Home Depot to figure out what we needed. Our first attempt using only the wood we had in the garage failed miserably. I can't wait until we can afford BIG tools! As we were staring at the miscellaneous dowels, the solution came to me. It ended up being so simple. Amit was a big help and drilled all the holes for me. We screwed the two main pieces together and glued in the dowels. Now I have my very own, one of a kind bracelet holder!!

My favorite DIY partner.
 Assembled and ready for a coat of paint.

Can't wait to see my bracelets on it!

 Oh Amit.
My sweet, sweet husband...
 Sweet, yet just a bit full of himself. 
(Though technically he was just being truthful.)

So our second DIY project was successful and actually completed. The bookshelves we made last year are still unfinished. I'm not painting those until I know the color scheme of our future home. I like doing these projects, but I only want to paint stuff once. I wonder what other projects we'll come up with...


  1. Wow, I'm impressed Heather! She's Crafty!!! Now I want to see these bracelets.. :)
