Mod podge jewellery tree

I've always struggled to keep my necklaces organised and accessible. My necklaces usually lie tangled in a drawer and seem too hard to untangle on any given day that I would like to wear them. Jasmine's necklaces start off in a jewellery box but within minutes end up scattered across different surfaces of the house. So when I saw a wooden tree at a craft shop I couldn't resist the opportunity to make a jewellery tree for us.

For this activity, I used the following materials:
  • wooden craft tree
  • green acrylic paint
  • paper
  • scissors
  • mod podge
I started out by painting the tree with two coats of green acrylic paint.


Next I cut out some circles from some different sheets of patterned paper. To make the circles consistent I traced around the end of a glue stick.

I stuck the paper circles onto the painted tree using mod podge. I then painted two coats of mod podge over the entire tree to give it a nice smooth finish.

I love the way I can hang Jasmine and my necklaces up so they look pretty and are accessible too.
