Whisk Jewelry Tree
 
Get organized in a fun, fashionable way by creating a wire tree using basic tools and materials found around the house.
 
Give an old kitchen whisk new life while creating a unique place to store your hidden gems or keep yourself on track.
 
Here, we’ve created a jewelry tree, but this crafty piece can be used for hanging, holding, displaying and organizing all kinds of stuff, including hair accessories, sewing tools, keys, photos, greeting cards, business cards, notes and reminders, tickets, recipes, ornaments and origami.

Materials

 
  • Whisk(s)
  • Wire cutters
  • Pliers (needlenose pliers work well)
  • Container, such as a pitcher, flowerpot, tin or bowl
  • Fast drying cement
  • Attractive stones


 

Directions

 
  1. Cut whisk(s) with wire cutters at the top of loops. Use pliers to bend the wire outward in all different ways and directions to look like tree branches.
  2. Prepare fast-drying cement per manufacturer instructions. Pour cement in the bottom of the container and set the whisk(s) inside.
  3. Once the cement is solid, place attractive stones to cover the cement.
  4. Hang your jewelry, keys, photos or other items on your tree.
