Gold Jewelry Resin Tree Hanger DIY
Hi friends, it’s Natalie from Doodlecraft with another fun DIY resin craft. Turn a tree branch into a stunning and unique jewelry organizer! Yes, this is a real tree branch that makes an amazing statement.
The tree is amazing with or without jewelry on it. Make it a home decor piece with it’s metallic simplicity…or just add jewelry for an organized and chic hanger.
Supplies needed for Gold Jewelry Resin Tree Hanger:
- Tree Branch with lots of forks and twigs
- EasyCast: Clear Casting Epoxy Resin
- Disposable: work surface, gloves, mixing cups and stirring sticks, and paintbrush
- Gold Spray paint
- Wood slice with hole drilled to fit tree branch
- Some way to hang the branch over work surface (I used a lamp)
Begin by securing the tree branch to the lamp or hanging mechanism, so the branch hangs upside down. Place it over the disposable work surface, as pictured, and cover the base of the lamp as well to catch drips of resin.
Mix a couple ounces of EasyCast Epoxy Resin in a mixing cup. Just one ounce of resin and one ounce of hardener would be enough. Mix according to package directions, stirring and mixing for the allocated time is crucial. Start by painting the resin directly on the tree branch. Let the resin drip and glide down each branch and twig. This is a very fluid and natural resin craft. Be sure to get resin on every part of the tree. Work in a well ventilated space; my workroom is ventilated and separated from the house but kind of dark.After coating the tree, let it sit for a few minutes and then scrap the drips off the table and pour them back on the branches.Let the tree dry overnight to really firm up the branches. Now it is ready to paint gold!Use gold spray paint to coat the tree branch lightly with metallic finish. Let the paint dry completely.Drill a hole in a thick log slice or other board, big enough for the branch to fit inside.Secure the branch with glue if necessary…and it’s ready to use!Fill with jewelry on the vanity or use as home decor on a stack of books! So chic and metallic!
