DIY Decor: Perfume/Jewelry StandThursday, July 05, 2012
Today's post is a long overdue tutorial on how to make an awesome display stand for your perfume, jewelry or any little trinkets that you want to display. The best thing about this project is that it cost me $8.00 (+tax) for the materials that I had to buy ... everything else I had at home! This is a great affordable project that, if done right, won't look tacky at all!
I filled up my glass jar with acrylic diamonds and a paper rose ...
Then I used contact glue to attach the lid of my jar to the bottom of the smaller plate, and the bottom of the jar to the top of the larger plate. (I don't have a picture of the larger plate with the jar attached but you get the idea).
NOTE: This glue did wear away at the spray paint that I used. It wasn't a problem because it didn't show, but keep that in mind if you choose to use this glue on spray painted plates. The same thing happens when using a glue gun.
And that's it!! This DIY is super easy, extremely affordable and the perfect way to spice up your dresser!
Here's some pictures of the finished product:
I glued my jar onto the corner of the plate instead of the middle to give me more space to put my perfumes. Feel free to experiment with positioning of the plates until you find something that works for you!
