Ha! I Made It- Easy DIY Jewelry Holder

Green Crafts Showcase

So at my old job I had a lot of access to DVD spindles. We went through many while I was there and it was kind of frustrating that we couldn’t reuse all of them, so I took one home and started to brainstorm.

This DIY is super simple! And honestly the spindle made a great jewelry holder without the additions I made. But I got super annoyed by the clanking of the plastic when I laid down my jewelry and I thought I could spruce up the design a little.

I found a lovely home for this new guy in my bathroom :).

    Nuh-uh! This is amazing! You did an awesome job with it – and I might have to try it, too. Those spindle thingies always seem like an utter waste of possible creativity, don’t they? I remember seeing on HGTV once they made one of them into a lamp! I don’t remember quite how, but it was insanely cool.

    Also, I think I’m only just noticing your haircut for the first time (um, pay attention much?). You look FANTASTIC, doll! So, so cute. (:

    SO simple and so damn smart. I am constantly amazed by you creative types to see what others would trash and instead take the time to transform it. I just don’t have that frame of mind for DIY, but I do have it for cooking. I see ingredients and immediately know what I can make. Maybe I just need to apply my cooking to craft?!

    Brilliant! I don’t know how many of these I’ve thrown away. I think I have a few more to make this! Thanks for the other links too. Recycling is always on my top list. Great job! -xx
