Tutorial: Homemade Earrings Frame

It is Karoline's 16th birthday tomorrow! And to keep with the homemade presents, here is another quick and easy step by step tutorial on how to make your own earrings frame. This would look great next to my jewelry frame!

Step 1: My mom found a simple frame at Vinny's, and painted it white with several coats of acrylic paint.

Step 2: Hot glue buttons onto the frame. This frame got all white/cream buttons, but you can use whatever colors you want!

Step 3: Cut a square piece of plastic mesh that fits exactly into the picture frame. Then cut a piece of burlap that is about 1 inch wider on each side, so that when you lay the plastic mesh on top of the burlap, there is about 1 inch of burlap on each side.
 Step 4: Using a staple gun, staple the plastic mesh/burlap onto the back of the frame, where the glass would normally be placed.
Step 5: Cut off the overlapped burlap.
 Step 6: Finished!

Sweet earring holder! I've never seen that with the plastic mesh in behind - very smart and looks great too!
