DIY: TREE BRANCH JEWELRY STAND

Just because your Christmas tree is pretty much dead by now, it can still bring you plenty of joy when you convert it into a rustic display for your jewelry. After some Urban Outfitters inspiration and a trip to the hardware store, we made ours in under an hour.

What You’ll Need:

-A sturdy tree branch with lots of smaller off-shoots
-A small block of wood
-A drill
-Wood glue
-About two cans of spray paint

How to Make It:

1. Clean the branch well with hot water and lots of soap. Scrap off any dirt and weak twigs with a knife or sandpaper.
2. Drill a hole into the small block of wood that is about the same diameter as the bottom of the tree branch.
3. Fill the hole half way with wood glue and stick your branch in so it stands up straight. Hold it steady until the glue dries.
4. Spray the entire branch and wood block with paint. Let it dry completely then spray on additional coats as needed.
