I spent all weekend working on these DIY jewelry displays for my upcoming craft fairs! Feel free to grab some inspiration from my idea Smiley
BEFORE:

Ewwwww
AFTER:


I have several sizes, but I don't have pics of them yet!
Materials:
-A bunch of frames from the dollar store, big lots, etc
-Mosquito netting
-Lots of hot glue (or any other really good glue, I suppose.)
-Paint and paintbrush.
I painted mine matte black, I haven't glossed over them with varnish yet. I'm probably going to add some polka dots or something with a paint pen afterwards to customize them. What do you think? Eye catching? Effective?

I do a lot of craft shows and these are really great displays. Wonderful, inventive idea.

oh I think they are very eye catching!  It appears they would hold quite a few
pairs as well. Something effective and easy to use. Now If I actually would put a pair of earrings away instead of on the coffee table, by the computer, on the kitchen counter then maybe in the morning I'd actually have two of them instead of one becoming a new cat toy!
I really like the checked on a lot!

Thanks guys! They were relatively cheap - the frames were from the dollar store, I already had paint and the meshing was the most expensive part -- but they took DAYS and were actually kind of obnoxiously difficult. The stupid meshing kept cutting me up and the glue kept burning me Sad

great idea! The frames are so cute - I think I will make some to display my earring collection as well (though I think I will buy some plastic canvas to avoid the pain of the mesh, and it comes in bright pretty colors!).

btw - love those green button earrings!

They are quite effective...they made me look twice! You could hang them just about anywhere too, or lean them places.

I love these, they are portable and making a bunch of smaller ones will add color to your room too Smiley  good job!

Don't say you don't have enough time. You have exactly the same number of hours per day that were given to Helen Keller, Pasteur, Michaelangelo, Mother Teresa, Leonardo da Vinci, Thomas Jefferson, and Albert Einstein.

Worth the headache in my opinion. Very cool.
