DIY Jewelry Organizer

A few weeks ago I saw the most adorable craft on Tatertots & Jello a few weeks back. I knew I had to make one and still I was searching for a gift for the swap I was currently in I knew this would be PERFECT!

I saw a few others that told me this was going to be adorable!!!
Handmade by Jen ROCKED it with her version {HERE}

I knew I had better get to work making this Fab project! I picked up my bamboo cutlery tray at Walmart for $7.99. What a deal!!

I sprayed painted it with my handy can of chalkboard spray paint, you'll know why chalkboard and not just regular spray paint later...

Let it dry completely. I left it to sit overnight.

Now comes the fun part...GLITTA! I purchased a simple liquid Epoxy from the craft store. I only mixed up as much as  I would need and poured it into the bottom section of the tray. Next poor in the glitta color of your choice and gentle tip tray until area is covered. T&J used Mod Podge on this section, but I wanted my glitta to be encased so I wouldn't have to worry about it coming off in the shipping process. 

I dug around in my fabric scraps and found the perfect piece of zebra print cotton. Applied a coat of Fabric Mod Podge to the tray laid the fabric in and then applied another coat over the top. 

Using small nails I placed on them through out the tray for hanging necklaces and bracelets on. I didn't want just plan nails so I jazzed it up with covered buttons. {can you tell that the button on the first compartment wouldn't cooperate}

So I gave it the ax and wrote the recipients name in using a chalkboard pen.

Super cute and super sparkly!
