We get rid of the advent calendar, so I was looking for something new to hang on this wall. I had pin this wall jewelry awhile ago...just what I needed for this wall and definitely DIYable. It's quite simple to make, you will need 3mm plywood, sand paper, wood stain, some wire and a piece of jewelry chain.
I draw the shapes on the 3mm plywood board and cut them out with a jigsaw. You can also work with balsa wood which is easy to cut with a cutter.
Sand each pieces to have nice smooth shapes.
Stain the shapes, I used chocolate and mahogany shades. You can also put a coat of varnish when the stain is dry.
Arrange your shapes to make a nice pattern. You gonna use wire loops to attach the shapes together. With a pencil mark the points where you need to drill holes.
With a small drill bit, make the holes.
Attach the shapes together, just pass a piece of wire in the holes and bend it to make a loop. To hang the wall jewelry, make two holes on the top shape and use wire loops to attach a chain.
And done, you have a nice and original new wall art!!
