Jewelry Tree!

I hope you all had either a wonderful Christmas or 6th night of Hanukkah last night!

For those of you who were introduced to my blog from my guest feature over at A Simple Affair - welcome back!

For those of you that first saw me over on A Simple Affair- this post is the same- so spoiler alert: you already know how this DIY project turns out...sorry!

For those of you who didn't see my guest post, let me explain. Carly and I share a love for big, bright necklaces and I felt I needed to display the sparkling gems somewhere to show off their beauty. Our upstairs loft area is really open- and I wanted to find a place that Michael wouldn't have to stare at every day.  I finally decided that the wall that serves as a headboard for our bed was the perfect nook to start out:

After checking out Pinterest I decided rakes, towel racks, and shower bars were not right fit for me - but when I saw some tree murals painted I knew that a necklace tree coming out of the corner of the wall was the way to go. First I penciled out the tree: 
(Go ahead, make fun of it. I know it looks like a 4 year old drew it- but have faith!)

Next I mixed up a charcoal grey color- which  I figured would be neutral enough to highlight all the necklace colors and bold enough to stand out on the wall:
(Yes, I had to wear my highest heels to paint the top of the tree- being 5'2" + no step stool = fashionable painting)
See? Much better than the pencil sketch:

After the paint dried I began hammering paneling nails along the branches for the necklaces to hang from:
(Make sure you leave at least 6 inches between your main branches so all your necklaces can show!)

The final step was to hang the necklaces ... the ones I could find at least - 2 months living here and I still haven't unpacked all the boxes! 

Leaves are lovely and all, but wouldn't you rather have a tree dripping with jewels??

After I hung all the necklaces I added some dangling earrings to the little, lower branches.  Doesn't it perfectly fill in the wall and the tree?

So there you have it- a great way to take a bare wall and turn it into a showcase for all your favorite statement pieces. How do you show off your great jewels?

P.S. Make sure to check out Carly's post on statement necklaces here!


  1. You're the best. I never get sick of looking at this amazing project. Can't wait to see what you have up your sleeve for 2012!

  2. So cute! Now if I just had a place my boys would not pull them all down. Pinned.

  3. Thanks ladies!! And Michelle- hope you can make a tree...maybe just with higher up branches!?
