DIY Earring Holder

I made a fun earring holder for my mom for Mother's Day this year. I've seen this idea floating around blogland and loved it!!! Sorry, I don't have a before picture, but I bought a frame at Goodwill. Just imagine a dark wood frame with a picture of a leopard sitting in tall grass and that's what I was working with for this project.

Then I took these items:
And started transforming my frame. I sprayed painted it with several coats of Heirloom White. I hot glued a piece a window screen to the back of the frame. Then I took fabric that matched my mom's leaf/fall themed bedroom and glued it behind the screen. There was a blemish at the top of the frame that I didn't like so I took berry picks, secured them together with extra fabric and glued it to the top of the frame. Here's how it turned out!!!

  1. very cute planning on making something similar only with three windows and using a mirror on one part. However I see it would be hard to put regular earrings in it unless you put a hinge on it hm....
