  • How to make a jewelry tree. Sugru Jewellery Tree - Step 1
    Step 1

    > 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.

    > Cut enough Fabric in a rectangular shape to come up and around the bottle, with a little extra as over hang and secure with some string.
    > *Obligatory cat paw in photo* Get your mini sugru packs, I started with black and blue.
    > Start rolling out long thin strips of the sugru.

    > 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.
