a cutsie tree for your necklaces with the help of Sugru!
An original way of displaying and organising your jewellery :)
The sugru requires at least 12 hours to dry hence the 14 hour craft time!
> First off, I used an old beginners wooden knitting needle as my cylinder as it was the right width, however you can easily get something similar from any craft or hardware store.
> I started by carefully whittling away using a stanley knife to create a 'tree trunk' effect.
> Once I was satisfied, I chose a nice fabric and a small bottle to cover (I went with an old herb one), which I filled with some ceramic balls to weigh it down.
> Next step is preeeetty little flowers for the tree, I thought a cherry blossom look would go down nicely.
> Using red sugru make little balls, using a spare cocktail stick make a well in the middle of the ball and then flattened it, retaining where your 'middle point'.
> Then carefully, this is very delicate, take the cocktail stick and go underneath the 'pancake' making dents like a wheel, and use the cocktail stick to fan out the petals.
> When happy use a strip of the sugru wrapper to pick up the flower being really gentle and place it on your tree.
