DIY: Earring Holder

I have a tonne of earrings hidden away in my wardrobe... But there are a certain few that I LOVE LOVE LOVE and I would wear on a regular basis... you know which ones I mean... [the ones that as soon as you put them away, you take them out again and wear them around!].

So here's an easy project for you to store your favourite pieces and keep them within easy reach! :)

Here's a few things you need:- frame
- PVA glue
- fabric
- decorative pieces

I used the glue to stick the lace over the top of the frame! This will be used to hang earring.

I formed a second pouch along the bottom of the frame by glue-ing the lace to the frame (from the inside).

I then added a few pieces to decorate the frame. (I originally sewed the flower to lace and then glued it to the frame afterwards to give it extra support.)

This is what you should end up with.

Here is what the pouch looks can hold stud earrings as well as rings and bracelets etc.

It is such a quick and easy project to do. Let me know if you try it out!

I Won My First Giveaway!!!

I am one of those people that is forever entering giveaways and contests on youtube, on facebook, on blogs, everywhere I can.

But unfortunately, I'm one of those people that never win!
(Random does not like me! lol!)

But last month, I entered a fabric giveaway from Lyndi's blog! And I found out today, that I won one of her prizes. (Albeit, there were three prizes, and I was one of three entries!). But hey, it's still a contest and I still won! :o) hehee!

Let's hope this is the start of a winning streak, eh? (Wishful thinking, no?)
