So, I have a daughter who gets some awesome toys from the family, some of which are from "Melissa and Doug."  The hippie, wooden toy-makers of the genre.  They always have these awesome wooden toy holders that are cool, and shouldn't ever be thrown away, so I don't.  ("Justifying your hoarding instincts...")

I also just took out my gauges, so I could wear cool earrings now.  I needed an earring holder.  Just like everyone else!

Here is the "Before.'


Then I added some scrapbook paper I've been hoarding for years:


Then I added some Screening from our Sliding Screen Door that I had to fix because the Dog has now learned how to open the door by biting a hole in the screen.  And some trim because the Hot Glue made a mess:


I added some paper as the backing to make it prettier.  And hot-glued the hanger onto the paper.


The final picture, with a couple of earrings:


I know everyone has made jewelry holders, but I was proud I got to use this Melissa and Doug box.  Finally!

Enjoy!

It's cute though, and good to use stuff you had lying around.

I like the earring holder, but what really caught my eye were the star earrings. I have made several pair with the same stars ( see pictures http://stringingfool.tumblr.com/  here.)

Did you make them? Did you rescue the stars from a necklace, as I did?

Needless to say I like those earrings!

That is such a coincidence!  How cool!  I have had those earrings since the early 90s.  I have no idea where they came from.  Where did you get _your_ stars?

I found the necklace at a yard sale, and the necklace just did not hang well, plus, it got tangled up instantly if you put it down! But I did like those stars!
