{easy to make} Antler Jewelry Tree Tutorial

I have a thing for antlers. They are spread all throughout my house. I love to decorate with them, so when I found a faux antler Christmas tree pick at my local Hobby Lobby, I picked it up. I knew exactly what I wanted to make with it.  I have a lot of small jewelry pieces and sometimes out of sight means out of mind. If I don't have something in front of me, I forget about it. But not now! I can see all my favorite pieces on the DIY faux antler jewelry stand and it's a beautiful art piece too! I'm partnering with HomeRight to share with you how I created this jewelry stand {for under $5!} and how you can too!

I took this faux antler...

and created this DIY faux antler jewelry stand. It's one of my favorite pieces in my master bedroom closet now.  I can't wait to show you how you can make your own too!

I might be a tiny bit obsessed with this small spray shelter from HomeRight. It's so small and compact {look at how tiny it folds up for storage!} but it unfolds to make the perfect place for you to complete any spray paint project. I was using a box before, but this is far better and provides venting for air flow as well as a built-in bottom to protect any work surface. I can set it up on the grass, on a work bench, or in my garage on those rainy Seattle days and never once do I have to worry about overspray. I even have the large spray shelter too. I love them both. I just can't count on our weather to hold out on the days that I want to create. 

I ended up having a beautiful sunny day, so I set up my small spray shelter between two saw horses with a piece of plywood on top. I soak up that sun when I get it since it's usually fleeting!

I found my antler pick in the Christmas section at Hobby Lobby for $3.99 {use your 40% off coupon friends!}.  I looked on-line and didn't find them listed. You can order something similar here.

I used Krylon silver foil metallic spray paint that I had in my stash to paint the antler. It's actually a super cool spray paint and gives it this really neat reflective finish. I did lay down a piece of paper under my work surface so that I can keep my spray shelter cleaner for longer, though it does have a bottom surface drop cloth built-in that you can spray directly on if you want to.

While I was waiting for my antler to dry, I sprayed a block of wood. Again, I had this piece in my stash. If you are a good DIY'er you will hoard all of the things like spray paint and wood blocks. If you need to go buy a wood block, pick up one that is 2" tall, 2" deep and 3 3/4" wide. You want to make sure your base is strong and sturdy enough to hold the items you will be putting on your antler and the antler itself.

I used the same spray paint on the block of wood too. Once it was finished, you will want to drill a small hole in the center of your block of wood. Cut the pick off so that it only has about an inch of the pick remaining and apply some wood glue to the end of the pick before you stick it inside the drilled hole in your wood. Let it dry for about 12 hours before you hang your jewelry on it.

That's it! Now you have a beautiful piece to use to hang your necklaces, rings, and bracelets on.

This would even make a beautiful gift to make and give, so keep it in mind this holiday season. Because I had the spray paint and the wood block on hand, the whole project cost me under $5 to make.  I love it because I think it looks like a high end boutique item don't you think?
