DIY Animal Jewelry Holder

After snazzing up the dresser in my closet, I had some fun creating a new way to display jewelry with plastic animals from the dollar store.  

It seems almost anything can be transformed with spray paint and a glue gun these days! 
I used one of our silver china plates and a decorative saucer dish that I found at Homegoods for the bases.  Then, I applied a dot of hot glue to the feet and attached them to the plates. 
Instant jewelry holder!  I think they would make a great Valentine’s gift for a woman in your life too. 
The elephant’s trunk and tusks would also make great ring hangers. 
Do you have a cute way you display your jewelry?

  1. This is so cute!! I spray painted a plastic animal a couple years ago but never would have thought to use it like this! Now I'm wondering where it is…
