A few weeks ago one of my good friends and I decided to mail each other care packages. I have known her for about a decade and she has always been one of the toughest people to shop for! Which is why most birthday presents lately have been a few shots downtown!
Anyhoo, I definitely wanted to make sure and personalize the gifts as much as possible and finally thought Accessories! When I think of my friend Trippy (to disguise her identity) I think about accessories, and lots of them. After looking through a million websites and jewelry stores around town I couldn’t find anything that resembled her at all. That’s when I remembered this pin from a few months back. The blog post focuses on cake stands but it can easily be turned into a jewelry stand. I know I have heard of this idea before but cannot remember from where, but it was very simple to make, and I really like how it turned out 🙂 Here are a few shots of the process.
These are the only things you need! I found two plates and a candlestick at Goodwill, already had my E6000, adhesive of choice.
Stick some glue on the candlestick and place it in the middle of the plate. I threw a few books on top and let it dry for about 10 minutes in between. Once I glued both plates onto the candlestick I let it dry overnight with books laid on top.
I am really happy with the turnout, I hope my friend enjoys it too 🙂 I am thinking of making a few more, maybe experimenting with a few different ideas I have, so let me know if you want one!
My summer has been a slow one. But it has given me a lot of times for crafts, which I love! I hope I can share the other things I have been working on soon! For now I am just ready for the weekend and the impromptu visit from my family!
I will leave you with an adorable picture of me and my care package friend, and my best friend who always jumps into all my pictures 😉
Trippy is the one on my right (your left). I love her dearly and I am so glad she and I decided to send each other care packages! Can’t wait to see what she has sent! If it is appropriate maybe I will share lol
Talk to y’all soon!
