Wondering what to do with those pieces of costume jewelry you inherited, or broken pieces of jewelry you can't bare to part with? Turn them into a fabulous memento you can cherish.
  • This is a one-of-a-kind keepsake of jewelry belonging to my mother and other family members.
  • The tree is very easy to make using a Styrofoam cone, and either gluing or pinning the pieces on.
  • This is an old brooch that belonged to my mother. Not valuable but very sentimental.
  • I placed a picture of her inside of it. Making this tree extra special.
  • I used glitter glue to fill in any spaces after I had finished adding all the jewelry pieces. This gave the tree a sparkly effect. I placed the finish tree on a small urn pedestal.
  • What a beautiful keepsake that I will truly treasure.

    I love this; it is so very pretty. I've given away so many pieces that were given to me that would have made a beautiful tree like this. :-( I'll have to start collecting again so I can make one for next year. Thanks so much for sharing.
