As soon as I get home, all my jewelry has to come off. I’m not sure what entering the house does, but I cannot wear jewelry in the house! So off it goes…a ring on the counter, another in the bathroom and a bracelet on my jewelry box. Then, the next day, we have a frantic search to find all the jewelry to put it back on. A vicious cycle!
Solution to the problem….a trinket dish
I really don’t think you can have too many trinket dishes. They’re really nice to have around the house and in places that collect stuff. At least you can look in all the trinket dishes when you can’t find a piece of jewelry!
Make it Yourself
There is something therapeutic about making a project. It reminds me of being a kid and creating something for my Mom on Mother’s Day or working on a project in art class. It’s calming and fun to transform an object into something functional and pretty.
This is the awesome base to my trinket dish. The best thing is that I didn’t pay one cent for it. Yep…it was free! I found it in a free basket at a local thrift store.
I spray painted the wooden base with Gloss White Spray Paint. It took about 3 coats but I did leave some of the wood grain showing to add some interesting character.
I already had a bag of glass stones so I chose some to glue around the trinket dish base. I tried to not be symmetrical but I couldn’t help it! I used Dazzle Tac Jewelry Glue to fasten the stones. The good thing about this glue is that you can move the stones a bit for adjustment while it’s still wet. But once it dries, they are really secure.
Next, I decided it needed a little more decorating so I outlined the edge of the trinket dish with a gold paint marker. I love the way it looks!
