If you don't sell jewelry, you can still make one of these! Right now I have mine sitting in my room holding my jewelry and it looks SO adorable! And for less than a dollar, and less than half an hour, there's really no reason you shouldn't make one!
So here is my super simple Jewelry Stand Tutorial!
-A hot glue gun.
If you don't have a hot glue gun, go get one right now! If you do any crafts of any kind at all, ever, you can use a hot glue gun! Thrift stores usually have lots of hot glue guns layin around, and you can always find them at craft stores!
-A small (45) record.
The thrift store by my house (from which I buy everything I need in life, and they know me by name by now!), has small records for 5 for $1.00, so less than a quarter for one!
If you're using the stand for shows, I recommend using black fabric, because it serves as a blank backdrop to better showcase your jewelry. If you use a colorful or patterned fabric, it will only distract from your jewelry. The only exception for this would be if you sell all black jewelry, then using white fabric would be a very good contrast. If you're making this stand as a gift for someone, or for your own jewelry at home, you can use whatever fabric you want! You can just use some of your fabric scraps (all good crafters should have a fabric scrap bin where they put all the scraps from when they're making projects!), I used scraps from a t-shirt that I had in my fabric bin.
-3 toilet paper tubes, or 1 paper towel tube and 1 toilet paper tube.
My family doesn't use paper towels because they are very wasteful and unnecessary, so 3 toilet paper tubes worked perfectly.
Once your hot glue gun is warmed up, make a ring of glue around the hole of the record. Immediately (the glue dries really fast, so you have to be quick!) stick the toilet paper tube to it. It should be a very close fit, as the toilet paper tube is just a little bit bigger than the record hole.
Tuck the ends of the fabric into the tube holes!
Glue the top tube onto the bottom tube!
If you want the record to be covered, cover that with the fabric also.
and you're done!
And here is your beautiful finished product!
P.S I took all of these pictures with my brand new camera that I am absolutely in love with! My mom and fiance chipped in together and got me the Canon Powershot for Christmas and it's amaaaazing! It makes all your pictures look so professional and beautiful! If you're looking for a new camera, I would definitely recommend the Canon Powershot!
