Make a Whisk Jewelry Tree

Su didn't originally intend to share her whisk jewelry tree on her website, Vively Online.  That is, until her husband saw it and said, "A whisk!   You gotta be s&*##ing me.  This is something you have to share."  I agree with him; if I didn't know, I'd never guess it was made from any type of kitchen utensil!  This ingenious design is perfect for displaying earrings, bangles, and other baubles atop a vanity or dresser.  [how to make a whisk jewelry tree]

I'm thinking of making one of these as a display piece for craft shows; I make a lot of hook-style earrings and this is the perfect way to show them off while taking up minimal table space.  Rather than spend money on decorative stones, I plan to use beach glass that I have collected along the Lake Michigan shoreline.  You can also go hunting for pretty rocks almost anywhere!

Project estimate:

  • Large whisk, $1
  • Glass vase, $1
  • Stones or other decorative fill, free or $1
  • Beads, on hand or $1
  • Ribbon, on hand or $1

Total:  $2 and up

    That is awesome! I keep my often-worn earrings on a little tree thingy and it’s really helpful! Also I know I have a safe place to put my engagement ring when I need to take it off.
