Picture Perfect Earring Holder

Ok, here's my take on the cute picture frame earring holders I've been seeing all over blog land. I've finally gotten past the "yanking" baby stage with my kids and can now wear dangling earrings and not just studs anymore. Yea for me!

A very sweet friend bought me an awesome stack of glittered scrapbook paper for my b'day this year. I picked out the sheet above, cut it to size and used spray adhesive to apply it to the cardboard backer of the picture frame.

I used my hot glue gun to affix plastic grid fencing (I had it left over from another use) to the inside of the front of the frame. The fencing was a lovely shade of grass green, so I spray painted it brown before using it.

Finished product, I think it turned out pretty cute! I think I still want to tweak it a bit, maybe add some cute ribbon or something to the front. The fencing material is really rigid, so it works really well for the earrings to hang from. And, since I already had everything on hand I spend exactly $0 on this project!
