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.
