I’ve always seen these beautiful jewelry organizers made from old plates, bowls, and candle stick holders. I’ve always wanted to make one but I honestly use very little jewelry and I already have a jewelry box.
After sorting through my items for an upcoming garage sale I found some beautiful candle stick holders that I’ll never use and some bowls and plates I bought at Target. These beautiful plates and bowls have gone unused since they don’t match my other sets. So, I decided to just do make the project. Who cares if I have no jewelry?
I’m glad I did! Here is how the project turned out. I used the taller one to hold things I use before bed and the smaller one to hold some of my usual office supplies on my desk.
All I did was glue them together with a hot glue gun. Be cautious to not move the plates around after you add the glue. Hot glue doesn’t work as well as a stronger glue like e6000 on this project. Glue everything together and leave it alone for at least 30 minutes before you put it to use.
Side note, I lost my hot glue gun for a few weeks and it felt like the end of the world. Once you have a hot glue gun you find a million reasons why you need a hot glue gun! I highly recommend you pick one up for upcoming DIY projects.
What home projects are you looking to do? I’d love some more ideas!
