Make sure you stop over to my latest link party!


Picture Frame Earring holder!

I told you last night that the creative juices where flowing!  I made an earring holder!  I have seen these all over and I LOVE them!  I have been wanting to make one forever!  So today I did!

Of course, I forgot to take pictures of the before.  Just think an blood red with gold accent. It was UGLY! I made it from a frame that I got for free and wire mesh that we inherited when we bought the house.  I spray painted it white.  Then I saw a trick where you water down brown craft paint and it looks like stain.  So I decide to try it!  I wiped it on and let it sit for a min then wipe it off just like stain.

It is far from perfect, but it was my first try. After what seemed like forever of painting and drying, I was ready to attach the mesh. Oh how I wish I had a staple gun, but I don't (it is on my birthday list).  So I hot glued in the mesh, which was a pain!  I then put my earrings on and I was done!  I loved how it turned out.  It is not prefect, but I love it! 

The last two pictures are of the beautiful detail this frame has!
  I LOVE it!

Great job! I can't do pierced ears, but this is a great storage (and decorative) solution to earring storage :)

Oh my gosh, I have soooooo many earrings getting all clumped up together in a jewelry box, and a bunch of old frames. All I need is the mesh! Thanks for posting this in Talented Tuesday so I could find it!

I may need one now, your turned out great. Do you happen to know if a magnet will stick to the mesh?
