DIY: Earring Holder

As I write this, I'm sitting in my pj's, sipping some herbal tea and trying to come up with something to post about - when it strikes me. I can show you what I tried to make the other day.

Watching youtube videos and browsing through pintrest for inspiration, I saw a DIY earring holder so I was literally on the hunt for a photo frame that was big enough to fit my entire collection of earrings, I kid you, not I hunted high and low even when I went to America to look after my sick aunt and still came up trump!

So the thought of doing that disappeared, just like many other DIY projects I thought would be a great idea (e.g. re-painting my mirror to some cool effect, re-decorating my bedroom to make it have a vintage look). Until one faithful evening, my mother and I went to Sainsbury's to pick my grandmother up some candles and low and behold in the sale section (because I'm a cheap motherf*****) I saw the perfect frame!

I can't remember how much they were but I picked up 2 of these bad boys and some string, and got to making some magic. 

And here is the finished product!

I just need to hammer some nails through the wall and hang them up and I'll be sorted.

What do you think?

If you want to try this at home, you will need:
*Frame of some sort
*String - quite thick because earrings are quite heavy

One thing I'll add is, I used selotape to hold up the string, and obviously its not sturdy enough and I don't know what to use to make it stronger - I was thinking maybe staples? I dunno but suggestions would be super helpful!

Happy belated Happy Halloween!
