Fallen branches and twigs found around your farm aren’t necessarily subject to death by wood chopper or bonfire. Pick up this farmyard waste to make a beautiful and functional jewelry display solution.

To get started making this jewelry tree, head out the farm and scavenge for downed sticks and branches around bushes and trees. Choose sticks that are dry, and do not take from living plants. Then bring the sticks indoors and cut to fit your vase of choice. Keep your jewelry tree au naturel, add color with a couple coats of spray paint, or use a craft glitter spray for a dazzling shimmer.

Allow your painted or glittered branches to dry, then situate them in your vase, and hang your jewelry. If you have more jewelry than one branch can handle, repeat the process!

This project also makes a great center piece during the holidays. Instead of jewelry, add holiday baubles, and accent the vase with ribbon.
