Finally, earrings holders!
A year ago, Emily with Cupcakes and Cashmere posted her necklace display which was a row of glass knobs from Anthropologie (I'm not sure how I stumbled upon this post since I didn't enter the blogosphere until August of last year). At the time I didn't have very many necklaces, but I needed something for my collection of earrings. Wrapping corkboard with material and using T-pins popped into my head. It's nothing like the glass knob display, but that helped get my wheels turning.
A few months later--and still no earring holder--Molly with Dot Girl Blog shared her project of covering her corkboard with old book pages. I thought of doing the same, but decided I'd use origami paper we have.
A few months later--and still no earring holder--Anne with Wobi Sobi shared a picture frame earring holder. I showed it to my hubby and told him that I still need to do my corkboard earring holder with origami paper. He had previously likened it to a tool holder and asked me if I was going to outline each pair so I knew which pair belonged where. This time he didn't mock and helped me get supplies.
He liked my previous idea of fabric so we went to Jo-Ann Fabrics, but after we went to Staples to pick up stuff for his work. I knew my corkboard wasn't big enough for my earring collection, so I picked up these corkboard squares.
While I was picking out remnants at Jo-Ann, my hubby found these shadow boxes on sale. The same dimensions as the
I found remnants of a pattern in three different colors (the third is a dark blue, not black)
I removed the glass from the shadow boxes, added the corkboard to the front of the frame board, wrapped the fabric, staple-gunned, put the frame back on, added T-pins and earrings, and voilà!
"I" hope you come back tomorrow for the continuation of the A to Z challenge. I'm so corny.
