|A few weeks ago I mentioned that I made this jewelry stand For Me, the Bangles & Bracelets. I was running out of room for jewelry on the 1st jewelry holder I made & needed a place to put bangles.|
I wanted the stand to be a reminder of God's faithfulness each morning when I get ready for the day. So I decided to take lyrics from a song I love by Audrey Assad & a favorite scripture (Jeremiah 29:13) to write out on the stand. Today I wanted to share how you can easily make one that is perfectly meaningful to you.
Materials Needed For Jewelry Stand:
E6000 Glue or Gorilla Glue
porcelain paint pen 150
2 pieces of printer paperlarge porcelain plate
small porcelain plate
candle holdertape (if you have some on hand)
small bowltea cup
damp paper towel
(I purchased the bowl, tea cup, plates, and candle holder from goodwill for under $3. Take a coupon to the craft store to pick up glue & a paint pen in your color of choice for about $5)
Deciding what you want to write on your stand is the hardest part. Once that is taken care of, it is smooth sailing from here on out. Next, take 2 pieces of computer paper & tape them together. Place your large plate over the paper & trace around it. Play around with how & where to place your calligraphy skills (or in my case, the lack there of).
|Don't think that it has to be perfect. I am not the biggest fan of my hand-writing skills but guess what? It is mine & these words are meaningful to me. That is all that matters.|
Then let your plates & tea cup sit for 24 hours to dry. Fight the urge to be antsy to get this project done & let everything sit for the full amount of time. The next day follow the baking instructions on the back of your porcelain pen. Once your items are baked & cooled off as directed you can move on to assembling your jewelry stand!
|Apply glue to the bottom of your candle holder, center it up & firmly place it onto the large plate. Then here it comes, WAIT! Put both of these pieces in a safe place to dry for at least 6 hours. It's worth the wait friends.|
