Bow Holder

BOW HOLDER 

I took a simple frame and spray painted it black.

Then I hot glued two different colored pink ribbons on the inner back edge of the frame and it looks like this:

I’ll either sell this one or give it to my niece considering I don’t have a daughter of my own to use it for.

I also made another Earring holder…This one is purple and is just too stinking cute:

Both of these projects cost under $1 to make. I had the black frame from a long time ago and just re-purposed it while the purple frame I bought at a garage sale and painted it with some purple spray paint. The jewelry, wire mesh, and ribbon were materials I already had on hand.

Graduation Gifts For Girls

Standard

Just like my Previous Earring Holder gift idea that you can check out here this is an earring holder I am making for my cousin for her High School Graduation! I am trying to twist hooks into the bottom of the frame but so far I’ve only been able to get one in…Does anyone have any tips on how to make it easier to get these hooks in? I painted the wooden frames a fuchsia color and hot glued the costume jewelry onto the front. It gives it a very classy posh look…I want to keep it it is so cute… but I don’t have enough earrings for it! I will post pictures of the finished products since I have one more to fix for my niece. This is really easy and cheap to make too… I bought the frame at a garage sale for $0.50, the jewelry and mesh screen came from my grandmother’s house so it was free…the most expensive part of this project was the can of spray paint..which was about $4 at walmart!

Finished Product:

Here is the other Earring Holder I am making for my niece for her graduation gift:

It is the same color as the one above but I just took the picture with a different camera…

Finished Product:

I’m so happy as to how these turned out! I would love to keep them for myself!

More Earring Holders…

Standard

I’m thinking of maybe starting a little side business and selling my earring holders…I’ve bout a bunch of different sized wooden frames and I am going to sand, paint, and decorate them. here is one set I’ve finished this week..I’m working two more right now for my step-niece and step-cousin’s graduation gifts!

Gifts for the Ladies in your life…

Standard

I absolutely Love LOVE Love jewelry…especially earrings, the danglier the better. But I had a hard time finding a way to store them when they weren’t being worn. But thanks to Pinterest and a few blogs I have come across this fantastic way to organize and store my earrings.

THIS IS ONE THAT I MADE FOR MY BEST FRIEND FOR CHRISTMAS WHO LOVES EARRINGS EVEN MORE THAN I DO!

 

Today I’ll show you how to make this lovely Earring Display with a cheap frame, wire mesh (or lace, burlap, ribbon…)

WHAT YOU WILL NEED:

Cheap old or new Frame of any size.

A piece of wire mesh, lace, burlap, picture hanging wire…

Hot Glue Gun & Hot Glue Sticks

Scissors

Ribbon

To measure the wire mesh or material that you are using…I found it easier to just measure the inset of the frame where the glass would usually go and then measure and cut the material to match your measurements. It is ok to have a little extra…it can always be cut off later or glued down.

Once the material of choice has been cut you can run a line of hot glue down one edge of the frame where you will be placing the material, line up the material and press it down on the glue…Careful not to burn your fingers…Lord knows how many times I burned mine while doing this. Do this all the way around the frame, pulling it as tight as you can. When the material is glued down to the frame, you can glue a piece of ribbon over where the material is glued to the frame.

Add something to hang it on the wall if needed.

I WILL ADD STEP BY STEP PICTURES LATER.
