DIY: URBAN OUTFITTERS JEWELRY STAND

Time for another DIY! This time, we’re making a jewelry stand for your rings. I was inspired by the one from Urban Outfitters, but wasn’t willing to pay the full price. I decided to make my hands dirty, get crafty and make my own! Although I am happy with the end result, you should definitely take a look at the epic ‘making-of’.

You will need:

Plastic gloves

Water

Plaster

Iron Wire

Wire-shears

A bowl

A spoon

Before you start, you should already cut off a piece of the iron wire. Plaster hardens quickly, so you won’t have time to do this later.

1

Put some water into your bowl.

2

Start adding the plaster into the water.

If you’re a fan of maths, you could check the ratio on the packaging so you know how much to put in. But since I ain’t got time for that, I just kept adding plaster until I found the consistency okay.

Keep strirring until you have a smooth mixture, without any big lumps. Your mixture should thicken after a few minutes. The consistency of mine looked like this. Once this is done, immediately pour it into the glove. Plaster hardens quickly, so do it right away.

So far so good, right? Yeah well, not in my case! Since I had to take pictures of the whole process, it took a while before I poured the mixture into the gloves. By the time I was done taking the pictures, my mixture looked like this:

I didn’t want to start all over again, so I thought I’d just go with it and pour it into the glove.

Take the iron wire and twist it around the end of your glove. Now, you can hang your glove while it dries.

I hung my glove on the door.

Soooo, after about 5 to 10 minutes it had completely hardened so I was exited to take it out of the glove and see how it turned out! This was the monster that I created:

The first thing that came to my mind was an episode of Spongebob. Remember the fancy ‘pinky’? Yeah, I nailed that one, didn’t I?

So since this monster was useless, I thought I’d give it another try, but this time without taking pictures in-between. Also, I decided to move the party outside, because I was making a huuuuge mess inside! So, I got outside and started putting some water into a bowl. But… Then this happened:

Yes, the water hose broke. Ofcourse! 😀 I got a nice cold shower and was completely wet but was still motivated to complete this DIY!

Soooo, I just repeated all of the steps I explained above. The only thing I did differently, was not waiting to pour in the mixture. This is the final outcome after all of the drama:

So although this was a huge struggle, I am very pleased with how this DIY turned out. Don’t worry, if you decide to recreate this, I’m sure you won’t go through all of this trouble. I just failed the first time because I had to take pictures and my mixture had hardened. So my advice would be to just follow all of the steps, without taking pictures! 😀

Once again, I hope you enjoyed this blogpost and are motivated to make this yourself some day. I hope I didn’t scare you with my unprofessional attempts at creating this jewelry stand! Maybe this was a lesson I had to learn: if I keep trying, I will eventually succeed. Just never give up 🙂
