Earring Holder




Now that school has started, I've gotten into a new routine that allows a tiny bit of free time during the day. Yay!!! I'm so happy to be back and crafting. I really need to re-organize my jewelry. It's currently (all tangled) in a gallon size bag. My hope is to make a few things so I can have easier access to my jewelry. First I started with my earrings.
 
I used:
Scrapbook Paper
Mod Podge (& sponge brush)
Acrylic Paint
Unfinished Wooden Frame (I used a 4"x6" frame but you can use any size)
Mesh Wire (I used an old window screen)



Flip your scrapbook paper over and trace your frame.

Paint the back and sides of your frame. While it's drying you can cut out your scrap book paper.

Once your paint is dry, apply a layer of mod podge (with the sponge brush) to the front of the frame. Carefully lay your paper down. Make sure to rub your fingers across the top for a minute or two so there are no bubbles between the paper and the frame. Let dry. Apply a thin layer of mod podge on the top of  the paper and let it dry.
 
If you want to sand the edges of your frame, now is the time. Once the mod podge is dry, sand away.

(Sorry for the crappy picture)
Measure and cut your wire mesh to fit in your frame snugly. 
Lay your frame facing down and lay your mesh down into the frame. Hot glue along the inside edge of the frame. 
After your glue is dry, you can turn it over and add any kind of embellishments to the front.

Now add your earrings and there you go! A cute and inexpensive way to organize your earrings.
Thank you for stopping by!
