We get rid of the advent calendar, so I was looking for something new to hang on this wall. I saw some cute wall art jewelry on Pinterest, some made with clay others with wood. I went for this second material to make my DIY version.

I draw the shapes on the 3mm plywood board and cut them out with a jigsaw. If you don’t own power tools, no worries. You can make this craft using balsa wood. It is a very lightweight wood that you can cut using a utility knife. You can find it in the craft store probably in the models and miniatures supplies department.
Sand each piece to have nice smooth shapes.
Stain the shapes, I used chocolate and mahogany shades. You can also put a coat of varnish when the stain is dry.
Arrange your shapes to make a nice pattern. You gonna use wire loops to attach the shapes together. With a pencil mark the points where you need to drill holes.
With a small drill bit, make the holes.
Attach the shapes together, just pass a piece of wire in the holes and bend it to make a loop. To hang the wall jewelry, make two holes on the top shape and use wire loops to attach a chain.
And done, you have a nice and original new wall art!!
