Ok… so remember the crazy busy weekend I told you about a few posts back? Well, I thought I’d share with you something else that happened that weekend…
Sunday after we finished our landscape project and then took showers we were both EXHAUSTED. It was only about 2:00 in the afternoon though so I didn’t want to waste the entire afternoon. Instead, I got out my handy-dandy earring holder and added in some new earrings that have been sitting on my chest of drawers for about a month now.
We’ve all seen those cutesy earring holders that sell at places like Claire’s and Charming Charlie. Those are great for people who have a few pairs of earrings. They just don’t work though for people like myself who basically only wear earrings and have a LOT of costume pairs. So, I created my own earring holder. I took pre-stretched canvases (all the same size – 18” x 14”) that you can find at places like Hobby Lobby, Joann’s and Michaels, grabbed a razor blade, an ice pick and my earrings and went to work. Here’s what I ended up with:
I didn’t hang them in any particular order because I basically know what earrings I have so I’m not all that worried about it. You could sort them by length or style or color or basically just whatever suits your fancy. What I like about this is that they’ll easily sit on the floor, or hang on the wall – whatever works for you. And NO TANGLES! Best of all, I can find whatever pair I’m looking for quickly!
I attempted to link up to a party this week to showcase this project. Not sure if it worked but here’s where I linked up.
