I like reusing things that might have ended up in the landfill if it hadn't been saved. I like jewelry. I make jewelry there for I have lots of it. I needed a place to display my bracelets not only for when I am not wearing them but for when I do a craft show.
Here is a tutorial on how to make a jewelry display made from things around your house.
Tube from wrapping paper, foil, plastic wrap, paper towel and toilet paper
*You will need 4 sizes -15", 12", 6" and 3"
Piece of sturdy cardboard - 9 1/2" x 5"
Exact o knife
Hot glue gun and glue sticks
Start with a sturdy cardboard base, cover the top in your choice of fabric leaving just enough fabric to wrap around and hot glue to the bottom. Make sure you do not make it bulky.
Cut your tubes to make the following sizes: 15", 12", 6" and 3". The 15 and 12 will be used as the top and the 6 and 3 used as the base to hold them up.
|Cut tubes and connect|
|Ready for fabric|
|Trace and cut circle for end cap|
|Glue end for cover|
Using a measuring tape, line up where you would like to position your tubes, draw a circle around them and trim the fabric in the area just inside of the circle you made.

|Add chopsticks for support|
