My jewellery gets so tangled up when it's in a box or a drawer so I'd been wanting a neat way to hang it. I noticed a few people using branches as necklace hangers and couldn't wait to make my own display to hold all of my jewellery.
Start by finding a frame you love. I got a long rectangular one from Ikea. Pick a few branches which will work well.
Lay the branches across the frame to find the right width.
Use a Dremel to cut the branch.
Repeat for as many branches as you'd like in your display.
Paint the branches white or any colour you'd like.
Mark where you'd like the top branch to go on either side of the frame.
Draw a circle to match the thickness of the branch.
Use the dremel to carefully drill a shallow hole where the branch will go. It's best to drill a small amount, test your branch and then drill a bit more until it fits perfectly.
Test your branch to make sure it fits snuggly.
Use the jewellery to help you decide where each of the lower branches should be position and repeat the previous steps to drill holes in the frame.
Mark where you'd like each of the nails to be positioned on the branch with a pencil.
Use a pointy tool to make a hole for your nails.
Hammer the nails in place until they're secured.
Use a hot glue gun to stick the branches in to your frame.
I used sewing pins instead of nails for a few branches to hole pendants.
