Vintage Silver Candelabra Jewelry Tree

10 Minutes
Easy

I found this vintage silver candelabra at a thrift store and let it collect dust for two years before repurposing it. And when I finally did, I created this gorgeous, elegant, and super functional jewelry tree that holds a LOT of my prettiest baubles.

An old, grimy silver candelabra caught my eye at the thrift store. It didn't really fit my home decor theme, but it was too interesting to pass up!

Two years passed before I thought of what to do with it! But then I had an idea...why not use it as a jewelry tree? The leaf shaped platforms already had holes it them for the chandelier crystals to hang from...

But it would be easy to add more for pairs of earrings! So, I used an awl and hammer to add additional holes.

Then, I layered on the pretties...first, some necklaces looped around the arms.

Then, earrings from the candlestick platforms...

And finally, stacks of bangles around the candlestick holders!

It's seriously the pretties jewelry holder I own- AND it's sturdy...no fear of tipping over under the weight of my sparkliest pieces!
