Homemade Earring Hanger

I'll start to by giving credits to my friend Mary for the original idea. She made me an earring rack several years back. I've used it every day since! So I decided to experiment and make a couple of my own. Since they came out ok I plan to make a few for Christmas presents.
My daughter & I put the above two together. We went to a thrift store to pick up the frames then over to the hardware store to buy black fiberglass screening. (84ft for $6)
Then we stapled the screening onto the back. Easy, inexpensive, useful project.
The above rack now holds my earrings (picture is a little sideways...oops!)
If you click on the picture it will enlarge. Most of the earrings were also made by Mary.
Crafty lady, isn't she?
This is Flower Girl's. Pretty funky earrings for a 7 year old. Trust me, she is not allowed to wear some of them in public.

I will end this post with a couple random links I'd like to refer back to and for you to explore if you desire.
Making liquid soap - I'd love to give a try at this sometime. I am going to attempt making bar soap soon, I've done it once before.
Blueberry Gateau - made this recipe the other day..... yummy!

I got one of these frames years ago and LOVE it! So unobtrusive but handy. We're having a hand-made Christmas, and you've inspired me! THANK YOU!

And we do need to exchange e-mail about poultry... Wonder how close you are to our four green acres???

I went to craft fairs searching for earring holders for the girl's christmas presents. Not one! I'm thinking I'm going to make them now, Thanks for the idea!!
