Looking for a fabulous way to display your jewelry? Maybe you're in need of the perfect (and very last minute) gift for your sister, mom, or BFF? How about in this lovely gold branch glass cloche from Urban Outfitters?
Wait, it's no longer available? Say it isn't so!!!
Have no fear my friends, I've come to your rescue with this ridiculously easy (and affordable) DIY so you can make your own!
Here's what you need: Glass Dome, Wood Base, gold, silver, or white spray paint (or any darn color you please), a drill, and a tree branch. That's right, head outside and snap a branch off the nearest tree. If the nearest tree happens to be in a neighbors yard (or at your local playground, as was the case with my branch) be prepared to snap and run!
Once you get your hands on a branch prune it with scissors to fit inside your glass dome. Then find yourself a drill bit that matches the diameter of your branch, mine was 1/4". Drill a hole smack dab in the middle of your wood dome base, dabble a little hot glue or wood glue in the hole and insert your branch.
Get out the spray paint to make the branch and base uniform. I suggest getting spray paint with primer or making sure you use spray primer first so that the paint really sticks. And that's it!
This particular size stand is perfect for rings, earrings and bracelets. But I'd say it's pretty whether it's draped with your favorite gems or not.
This really is a wonderful last minute gift idea as spray paint drys in minutes! And if you aren't feeling crafty at all, I must say I am loving Urban Outfitters selection of jewelry storage beyond their no longer available and totally fabulous glass cloche branch jewelry stand.
