Make Your Own Bracelet Stand

One day, I realised I needed somewhere to store my bracelets.  At the time, they lived in my drawer, on my dresser or in the bathroom.  I didn’t want anything complicated or bulky, just something functional.  Then it came to me…why not use a paper towel holder?

You can pick up a chrome plated holder like this one between $2 to $6 from most discount stores.

Now, I could have used it as is, but I had another idea. Why not wrap thin pieces of scrap material around the metal? I grabbed some material, scissors, PVA glue and a brush. I cut long pieces of the scrap material at about 3cm in width. I brushed the material with some PVA then began wrapping it around the metal, applying glue as I go. It gets a little messy – expect to have glue all over your fingers – but it’s done in about 15 minutes and the glue washed right off.

One completely covered in material, I gave it another even brush with PVA and left it to dry overnight. The next day I had a pretty good looking bracelet stand!
