Bottle Tree turned Craft Organizer

I bought an inexpensive bottle tree on ebay
and I was sorry... the darn thing came broken... luckily, the seller was a "stand up guy" and refunded my money and let me keep the bottle tree....


Well I sure wasn't going to let it go to waste.... 
I quickly turned it into a  
handy craft organizer for my desk.

The bottle tree ended up to be the perfect place to hang everything I need for crafting, all within reach on my desk.... 
It also ended up to be a cute place for hanging 
numbers, tags, and a metal letter 
or two for decoration.

A large flat round basket serves as the base and catches all the tools I just throw in the general direction of the hooks....

Thrifted yellow enamelware mugs hold supplies 
that won't easily hang, like glue sticks and tape.

String, twine, and wire are hanging within 
arms reach...

In the center, a yellow plate holds another mug that holds tools and the go-to-glue E6000...

At the top the perfect sized dish holds one more covered enamelware pot that is the perfect place for even more small accessories


Nothing goes to waste around here...

This is an example of a cool picture effect you can create with,
a possible alternative to our dear departing Picnik...
