DIY Earring Organizer

I finally finished a little project that's been rolling around in my head for about two years. My earrings were spilling all over the place - they were in my bedroom, in the bathroom, in the living room - basically where ever I happened to be standing when I realized that my earrings were driving me nuts and needed to be taken out!

My mom was getting rid of this picture frame at a garage sale and I snatched it up thinking it would be perfect for this project. The pictures don't really do it justice - it's hanging in the bathroom and I just can't get enough decent light in there.

The project is super simple: all you need is a picture frame, some window screening, a pretty piece of fabric, a glue gun and a staple gun.

Cut the screen to fit the in the inside lip of the opening and use your glue gun to keep the screen in place. And then stretch a piece of fabric to the back of the frame and staple in place. Done. And totally functional. No more earrings in the living room!

Oh my gosh! I love it. The frame is beautiful with the fabric. Did mom have any other frames like that?
