Hi there!

Inspired by posts on here and on Pinterest, I decided to make an earring holder for my sister-in-law.



I used a picture frame I found at the thrift store, and lace that I bought at JoAnn's. I first cut the lace to size and put fabric stiffener on it. I then hot-glued and folded the lace into place, and then bent a wire coat hanger into a good shape to support it.

Ta Da!

That's so pretty! Bet it looks great filled up with earrings, too.

What a clever idea, and beautiful to boot.  Smiley
I never find so beautiful things in my thrift shop adventures.

Thanks! It took a number of trips to find a picture frame I liked. Now the frames are on my list of things to peek at whenever I go thrift shopping. (It's a long list.)
