Craft Corner: Earring Frame

Besides doing a lot of reading since school has gotten out, (I'm halfway through my 4th book in the last month!) and not feeling guilty about reading magazines instead of textbooks. I've also been trying to get crafty on some things. I even sewed up some clothing that has had holes FOREVER. ( I know, it's sad that little things like that seem like large huge feats after doing school and working 3 jobs for so long.) But it's really nice to have time to do those little things!

My latest project was an earring holder. All of my earrings were just strewn and tangled all over the bookshelf and in boxes/drawers/bags - you name it! So I decided to look for a creative way to display them (and I didn't want to spend a lot of money on a holder.)

You may have seen the picture frame earring holder before, but usually it's done with mesh, a staple gun and a lot more time and patience than I had at that moment.

Instead, I used felt - a pretty pattern I found a Michaels - and a cheap frame, also from Michaels. I just cut the felt to fit the frame and simply used a glue gun to glue the felt to the front of the glass. Then I popped it in the frame like a regular picture. And Ta-da!

Well almost Ta - Da... With the help of a tack poking holes in the felt, I got all of the earrings put up. It may not be quite as user friendly as other versions of the project, but it worked for me and was under $5. :)
