Forget the flowers, this year give the moms in your life personalized Mother’s Day Gifts they will love. This colorful DIY monogrammed jewelry dish is the perfect accessory and catchall tray for all of mom’s jewelry.
I love a good accessory, especially if it is personalized. After all, we are in the south and every southern girl knows everything is better with a monogram. Every time I wear my Large Initial Monogram Letter necklace I get tons of compliments. So this year I decided to grab a few for the special moms on my list for Mother’s Day.
I thought it would also be fun to include a personalized monogrammed jewelry dish to go with each necklace. I know I’m always taking my rings and jewelry off and misplacing them, so I love having a cute little tray to keep everything contained.
These colorful dishes might be small, but they are incredibly practical and pretty! All you need are a few supplies and 30 minutes to create your own personalized Mother’s Day gifts.
Supplies for DIY Jewelry Dish
I used DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin paint to create these abstract jewelry dishes. This premium paint is self-sealing, so no primer or varnish is required and it provides excellent coverage in one to two coats on almost any surface. The special formula is designed to brush out smoothly and once fully cured, creates a durable, hard finish that is highly resistant to cleaning chemicals.
I found a bunch of small white trinket dishes on clearance and used those to create each personalized jewelry dish. However, if you can’t find plain white trays you can create your own from concrete or clay.
Here is a list of the supplies you will need.
- Small White Tray or Dish
- DecoArt Multi-Surface Satin Paint
- Paint Brushes
- DecoArt Glass Paint Marker – Gold
- DecoArt Stencil Ring – Sophisticated
How to Make Monogrammed Jewelry Dish
In less than 30 minutes you can create a cute and functional jewelry dish.
Start by choosing one of the lighter colors from your paint selection. Paint an abstract brushstroke with that color on opposite ends of the tray.
Next, choose another color and slightly overlap it with the existing brushstroke pattern you have already painted. Remember, there is no need to perfect. That’s the beauty of this colorful abstract art!
Continue to layer brushstrokes, lines, and dots to create a colorful abstract pattern on your tray.
Let the paint dry and then use one of the letter stencils from the DecoArt Stencil Ring to create your monogram. I love that each individual character is on its own sheet and secured with a detachable jump ring. It makes it easier and much more convenient to properly place your stencil for smaller projects like this.
Finally, use the gold Glass Paint Maker to rim the edge of your tray in gold.
