I love the look of a good tiered jewelry tray, and boy, did I need one. I mean, I make accessories constantly and there are rings and pendants coming out of my ears (which is funny, because I don’t wear earings). Most of the jewelry organizers I have are for hanging necklaces or are dishes that are too small to hold very much. A tiered jewelry tray is the perfect answer, but I needed one large enough to be useful and keeping in the post-modern style of our home.
When I found these wooden boxes, I knew they would be perfect.
So, to make this wooden tiered jewelry tray I just needed this set of wooden shadow boxes,
A decorative wooden leg,
And my hot glue gun and glue stick.
To start my tiered jewelry tray DIY, I first set my glue gun to its highest setting. While it was heating up, I opened my decorative wooden leg and wooden shadow boxes.
Using my ruler and pencil, I marked the center of the larger wooden box. I made sure to measure it from several angles.
When the hot glue gun was hot enough, I placed hot glue on top of the marking as well as around the bottom of the decorative wooden leg, before quickly placing the bottom of the decorative wooden leg onto the center of the larger wooden box. I pressed them together as the glue set.
Using my ruler and pencil, again, I marked the center of the smaller box – on its backside, this time. After placing glue on the top of the decorative wooden leg, I quickly pressed the smaller wooden box into the glue, and onto the leg, centering the box over the larger box.
After pressing the smaller wooden shadow box onto the decorative wooden leg, my tiered jewelry tray was complete.
Most of the tiered jewelry tray DIY’s online are made from dishes or glass or what-not, and they’re a little too precious for my style. This wooden tiered jewelry tray is just right.
That’s all the excuse I needed.
