With Mothers Day right around the corner, some of us might be scrambling to find the right gift for those special mamma’s in our life. Well don’t worry, I got you! I have a super Chic, Modern and EASY jewelry holder ( you only need 30 mins!) perfect for the minimal mom.
I bought all of my supplies from Micheal’s Craft Store, with coupons and store promotions everything came in under $20.00 SOOOO affordable. ( Also I ended up using added a small marble dish, also from Micheal’s)
For this DIY you will need:
- 5.25″ x 12″ thin piece of wood
- Wooden cones ( similar if not better)
- Foam brush
- Small detail paint brush
- Acrylic paint (I used Martha Stewart Sailor Blue)
- White acrylic paint ( I like this one)
- Liquid Gilding
- Small jewelry dish ( I can’t find mine!:()
I Start by adding a VERY thin and EVEN layer of the liquid gilding with a small foam brush. I Allowed the liquid gilging to fully dry before adding the next layer (I did three) be sure to shake well before each use. Also this stuff has a strong scent, work in a well ventilated area.
I wanted to create an ombre effect, so I stared by added blue paint to 5 mixing bowls then added a small amount of white paint until I reached my desired color ( this is optional, you can paint your cones all the same shade). Set aside and allow to dry.
Once everything was fully dried, I played around with placement until I was happy. I used a ruler and pencil to make a guide, creating two straight rows going from dark to light and placing the jewelry dish on the far left.
Once I was happy with the placement, I added a small amount of E600 still using my ruler as a guide. I allowed the glue to dry (24hr) and that’s it!
I hope you guys enjoy this DIY, If anyone recreates it be sure to tag @lifeinmauve and use the #lifeinmauvediy. I have a few more DIY’s to share so make sure to check back tomorrow.
