DIY Shell Jewerly Branch Holder

Here is my infamous Tree Branch Shell jewerly holder. I have made a few of these over the years and have always loved crafting them. I have made some for friends for their birthdays and they have really loved them as a present. I still have request to fill! They are simple and fun to make and recommend trying ;)
What you need:
2 manzanita tree branches. (I buy them from Blooms and Branches)
Pot or Vase
Plaster of Paris (you can find this at Lowes or Home Depot)
Hot glue gun or craft glue
What to do:
Mix plaster of paris and fill pot with it. Stick the two manzanita tree branches in the plaster of paris the way you would like them to stand. I sometimes will put small sticks next to the bottom of the manzanita and plaster of paris to make it stand better. Wait til the plaster of paris dries. Once the plaster of paris dries you can start gluing the shells, moss and rock to your arrangements. There are endless ways to design these. I have also made some with larger shells upside down and glue them to the branches, this way you can have loose jewerly you can just throw in the shell. You can paint the branches with gold or even a coral color to make it look real coastal. This also doesn't have to be a jewerly holder, it can just be a display in your house or you can hang seaglass. The ideas are endless! Hope you all try it. You will love it!!

Laugh and Love
