Pottery Barn Inspired Tiered Jewelry Holder {TUTORIAL}

Ever since I saw {this} post by Little Miss Momma, I fell in LOVE with her vintage iron jewelry holder from pottery barn! I wanted one for myself. So I did a search, and had a hard time tracking it down. When I finally did, it said it was out of stock. But even if it WAS in stock, I saw the  price tag, and could never allow myself to spend $60 on a jewelry holder! So I was determined to find a way to make one for myself. My cost was a whopping $2!!! This is the result:

Here is the original... my inspiration:

And again mine:
They are not exactly the same, and I know I could have done other things to make it look more like the inspiration. But I decided to keep it a little bit different, and I LOVE how mine turned out! Though I still may add another base to bring the bottom tier up!
This is what I used:
~Two Round Silver Tray's (from dollar tree)
~Two glass candle stick holders (I had them on hand, from dollar tree)
~E6000 (I had it on hand)
~White Spray Paint (also had it on hand)
~ Drill & a very tiny drill bit 
(I dont remember the bit size, I had the hubs help!)

I asked for The Hubs help. I gave him one of the silver trays and had
him drill small holes all the way around the scalloped edge of the tray.

This is what it looked like afterwards.

I turned that same tray upside down and used the E6000 glue to glue
one candle stick holder to the bottom of it.

After letting it try for about 10 min, I added the second candle stick
holder to the first one, like so:

Finally I glued the second tray to the second candle stick holder,
then turned it all the right side up and added a few things for weight.
Its best to let this glue dry over night! Once the glue is dry, then you
can spray paint it, give a few coats, and wait, wait some more.

Once the glue and paint is all dry you can start adding all your jewelry!
This is my 90 in strand of pearls! Yes 90 INCHES! :)
They can wrap around 3 times! And have so many looks!
I love them, I bought them from Premier Designs Jewelry.
The other necklace is 60 in Gold necklace also from Premier,
which I just got for Mothers Day, from the Hubs!

Its so perfect, it holds so much jewelry, earrings and even my fav
headbands and hair clips that Ive made!
I just had to have a fun little photo shoot with all my jewelry.

Up close of all my favie headbands/clips.

I got both of these gorgeous cameo silhouettes from my older
sister Mona, for two separate birthdays. I adore cameo silhouettes!

Here we have on the left:
A premier designs bracelet & Necklace,
Rue 21 lockets

My lovely earrings! 
Those leather feather earrings with the pearl are my take on the ones
Little Miss Momma made in her tutorial {here}
The purse like earrings from Permanent Baggage
The rhinestone hoops and the purple shell earrings from Torrid

Those blue dangling earrings were bought for me by the hubs at
a local hand made shop from Oregon, while we were there for the 
4th or July. The small silver hoops were a Mothers Day present,
They were on the ears of a pink Build-a-Bear...along with a bracelet.

That bow necklace is the very first piece of jewelry I ever made!
See the tutorial post {here}
Photographer necklace, will be coming to my boutique soon!

Again.. my lockets! I LOVE my family! And up there, top right...
that lovely heart pendant necklace has a secret...

Its really a Thumb Drive! It also reveals the secret NERD in me! :)

This XOXO bracelet says I LOVE YOU, it was a gift from the hubs and the kids on Mothers Day 2006! It came on the wrist of the same pink Build-a-bear as the earrings pictured above.

The bow earrings are from Torrid the Black hills gold "M" necklace was a graduation gift from my momma! The Pink Diamond pendant necklace was a gift from The Hubs on our first anniversary!
The yellow ribbon pendant has my husbands patch on it. B-Co 5/20 Inf! I wore it every day he was deployed! That gold cross necklace was a gift he sent me from Iraq for my birthday that year, and the green cross was a birthday present from my sister Mona, that same year.
 Each of these specific pieces of jewelry mean so much to me!

Before, all my special jewelry was just hidden in  a box, I hardly saw it, I almost forgot I had most of it! Im so happy to have it displayed so lovely now!

Can you believe how easy it was to create this stunning
jewelry holder?! :)

  11. oops fabric, bottle, typing with my toddler on my lap is hard work.

  12. Very cute! I love that you knocked it off so well! I never thought to drill holes in the plates for the earrings!

  13. Love this. You know what? I have a TON of vintage records this would be awesome to do with!

  14. Oh my heck I LOVE this!!! What a great idea. I had seen that same jewelry holder on little miss mommas blog and thought it was great, but if I can make it for cheap then thats even better! Thanks for sharing your tutorial

  15. Great idea...thanks for sharing! Yours turned out so cute:)

  17. Great idea! Fabulous job!
    Thanks for linking up to Making It With Allie! I can't wait to see what you have for next week!

  18. Great take on the PB jewelry holder. I was wondering where you found the plate with the holes around the edge then read further and saw that you used metal trays...brilliant!

  19. That is a great copy!!! Great job! Thanks for sharing at the Tuesday To Do Party! Can't wait to see what you share next!

  20. Question and Compliment!!!! You ROCK!!!! This is awesome! Would Hot glue gun do the trick?

  21. @Doug, Jess, Elena and Mason: Thank you so much for your question AND compliment!! :) I tried to see if I could email you, but didnt find one, so hopefully you will come back and see this! I do think a hot glue gun would work, BUT possibly may not be strong enough to keep the hold with all the jewelry on it. I know I have tried using a glue gun to glue glass to glass and it has help very strong, but it seems to not hold as well for metal. You can try it and let me know! :)
    But I would recommend the E6000 just because you know it will be a sturdy permanent bond.

  22. we LOVE this! we love it so much we are featuring it this saturday, votations starts on the same day. thanks for sharing, doll! xoxo

  23. Saw you featured on To Sew With Love. I am your newest follower! I love this....just need to head to Dollar Tree to buy the trays. I have a lot of the candle holders for crafts such as this. Thank you for sharing!
