DIY Jewelry Tree

On my most recent trip back to the "states", Mom and I hit JoAnn Fabrics (whoop!). The hardest part about living overseas and having an addiction to DIY projects is the ability to find the supplies you need. I usually end up ordering on-line and waiting .... waiting ... waiting for the delivery ... or I make a list of projects and supplies then wait until I travel back to the U.S. and make a GIGANTIC purchase! Either method requires waiting ... and I don't like waiting!

Anyway ... I found this Valentine Tree at JoAnn's for $4.99 plus 40% off ... yippee! When I saw it I immediately thought "jewelry organizer". My only regret is that I didn't buy more! A few coats of black paint and the transformation from Valentine Tree to Jewelry Tree was complete ....


Valentine Tree (JoAnn Fabrics is having 70% their Valentine decorations ... so go! go! go!)
Black Paint (I used spray paint)

Jewelry Tree

I place my "everyday jewelry" on the tree for safekeeping and quick access

Before ... Valentine Decoration (ho-hum)

After ... Sophisticated Jewelry Tree (cute!)

Top to bottom ...
(no, I don't keep my jewelry on the floor by our wine crates ... this was just the best lighting in the house)

The kiddo came over while I was taking photos and said "oh, nice" ... nothing like a little approval from the little one!



  1. what a creative idea!! i've seen similar "trees" in high end catalogs- what a deal you got! good jobn thinking out of the box!

  2. Good idea! I like easy projects like that and I need to find something to hang my necklaces on since they're all tangled up in my box right now. I'll have to see what I can find!

  3. This is great!!! I need to get to JoAnn! I love their sales. You have a great eye!

  6. Came over from Bubbly Creations. This is genius! I cannot wait to go over to Joann's and make one too! Thanks!

  7. This is a good idea. Sadly I don't have a Joann's so I'll have to watch for something similar. Thanks for sharing.
