So as promised I will tell you where to get antlers and how to make a stand for your jewellery as seen in my previous blog post.
But first I am going to show how to make a rustic jewellery tree - much cooler than the fake ones you see in the shops - like what is pictured below. You can also use antlers instead of tree branches for this one too.
The Finished Product:
You will need some tree brances or an antler or a set of antlers which you can puchase from Tarlo and Graham they are really helpful, if you need them posted I'm sure they will do that for you.
You will also need:
- Quick dry cement from any hardware shop
- A bucket whatever size you like (and don't be too attached cos it is going to get destroyed in the process)
- Spray paint - I used white but use whatever colour you like
First mix the cement in the bucket with a little water, then place antlers in to set - so easy.
Once set cut the bucket off and paint.
You can also mosaic the cement base or put it on a rustic old pot, I have a thing for old brass pots and vases.
If you want one like the one I made in 11:11 you just need an old piece of wood. Finish it with a little sand paper, drill into the bottom of the antler and through the wood then screw the two together - easy! If you have any questions leave them in the comments.
On my last trip to Melbourne I went to Tarlo and Graham pictured below. I love this shop, it has heaps of weird little bits and pieces. I really enjoy just walking around these kind of shops even if I buy nothing. There was heaps of taxidermy in there when I went which is kind of creepy but strangely attractive. It is changing all the time with new stock arriving weekly so I can't wait to go back on my next trip.
