When I first started visiting this site I saw an interesting display that had been made as a display for pendants.
Unfortunately I don’t remember the name of the individual who made the display but I owe her a big “Thank You” for getting me energized to try something similar.
The supplies for this version were not too expensive. The pot and rocks are from a 99cent store, the floral wire and tape are from JoAnn’s and the plaster of Paris is from a local home improvement store.
Currently I use my Earring Tree at the local farmers market. The earrings have wonderful movement in the breeze and are a nice attention getter. In the past I’ve also used the trees for center pieces at home parties.

I love this idea
Such a great way to show off your earrings. Economical too, best type of display.

Just LOVE IT!!! Thanks so much for sharing this idea and making me remember that I used to do floral design. I have a bunch of wire and black wrapping tape hanging around and would like to try my hand at your great idea!!!
variation on the theme
I made a similar tree, but using the painted twigs with LED’s on them (used in interior decor). Not only are they inexpensive (about $12 a bunch) but the LED’s are battery operated, so can be used without power points. I mixed them with twigs taken from gum trees (leaves attached) that I had sprayed with lacquer. I got plots of positive comments from people about how great it looked.

Love it – how do I make one?
Love your earring tree! All of mine are clip-ons so I’ve been searching for a solution that will work. I Had a few questions about how it’s made – is the basis an actual tree branch or is it just wire wrapped in florist’s tape?
