I though it would be both fun and organizational of me to make some stylish jewelry holders. I either take my jewelry off the second I get home or before I get into bed. So I wanted these dishes to look classy and part of the decor whether they be on an entry way table, on a side table or a dresser. I found $1 plates and ceramic doves at a thrift store. On my way home, I remember I had a pine cones left over from Christmas and thought, why not?! I especially like the doves because they can hold my rings. If you are looking for something similar you can search online for ceramic animal planters.
Golden Pine Cone Jewelry Dish
Supplies: A dish, pine cone, Rustoleum metallic gold and white spray paint, Gorilla Glue, sand paper or nail file.
1. Paint your dish white, then paint your pine cone gold in a well ventilated area (aka outside).
2. Glue the pine cone onto the plate using a very thin layer (it expands) of Gorilla Glue and let dry for about 2 hours. I would not suggest using a hot glue gun because it may not stick long term. As you can see below the pine cone had a little nub so I used a nail file to file it down a little so it would sit up straighter.
Hot Pink Love Dove Dish
Supplies: A dish, Rustoleum pink and white spray paint
1. Spray paint your dish white, and then spray paint your doves, or other animal friend, a vibrant pink. I decided not to glue down the doves so I can use them on different dishes depending on the season.
Retro Sunburst Jewelry Dish
Supplies: A dish, Rustoleum metallic gold, painters tape, cutting mat, exacto knife, ruler and pencil.
1. Cut stripes of painter's tape, and tape them down to a craft mat, then use your ruler to make draw large triangles. Then cut them out using an exacto knife, and tape them down to the plate.
2. Tap the back of your plate before spray painting gold. Make sure you use paint has a primer. I would even suggest painting your plate all white then painting the gold accents so the paint adheres to the plate better.
3. Place a little critter on the plate for added cute factor! My friend, Jeanette, gave me this little guy on my birthday because my Chinese Zodiac animal is a rooster - no surprise there!
Hope your next project is a charming one!
