Earring Decor

I hated where my earrings had been stored and was trying to think of something new and different. I thought of the bulletin boards that people were making with frames, ribbon, and fabric as a background. This was the perfect shape and size. I used one of my favorite pieces of vintage fabric.

Sue Whitney- I am honored that you liked my earring organizer. I, too, am mad about fabrics- any kind, but particularly vintage fabrics like barkcloth and feedsack prints. When I am out and about and I see a piece of any size at a good price, it's mine. Then, I save it for a project such as this. I need more projects to use my collection on. But, in the meantime, I am happy to just look at them folded up on my shelf. They make a pretty display. :)

Thanks for sharing.

It's still hanging in there( I have been making bad puns all day!), but I can foresee that I will need to re-staple the ribbon to make it a little tighter. It really accomodates only french wire type earrings and the kind that kind of clip- but I don't have a problem hanging them over the ribbon. It still beats keeping them in the little plastic bead containers I was using! Oh- and my earrings are usually not too heavy- I don't have much of an ear lobe and don't want to develop a big sag. Is that TMI? :) Posted: 10:58 pm on February 2nd
