Lace earring holder

Frames are inspiring, yah?  There's sooo much you can do with them.  You could probably find something else for this craft other than for earrings, too.  But anyway, I've been wanting to do this all summer.  Glad to be back to the bulk of my jewelry once again (it was hard taking the bare minimum to Oklahoma).

I loved the turn out of this so much I thought I should share.  Go make it!  It's...IMG_5460
Super easy.
Get:

  • a frame
  • lace fabric
  • tiny nails
  • a glue gun.  
(Or instead of nails a staple gun- which I would've used if I had one)

Cut your lace a little bigger than the frame.

Nail down the two top (or bottom) corners of the lace onto the back of your frame- bust out your glue gun and run it along the edges under the lace.  Find something to use to push the lace down onto the glue so you don't burn your fingers.  Be sure to pull the lace so it's not slacking at ALL.  You want your lace to be tight so it can support your earrings.

Trim around the edges to get rid of that extra fabric.

Voila!

And check it out- another frame to go with my necklaces frame.  I plan on putting them up on my wall somewhere (don't worry it'll look cute) when we finally end up moving.  I plan on having painted walls so I'm happy with the white frames but how cute would colored frames be!?  Anyway, for now, it'll rest on my dresser.  Totally beats the old earring older I've been using since 10th grade that I got from Claire's.  (;
