Earring Holder

I have been wanting a jewelry holder for quite some time but we cannot afford one yet. I used to keep them all in a box and then all my jewelry would so tangled and it was hard to find them. I know that there are some cute hanging jewelry ideas but some of my jewelry would get tarnished being out in the open air. I had been thinking about it for a while and realized I had this box from a scrapbook kit I got for Christmas and I just lined it with scrapbook paper and hot glued string across the box and it is perfect for my earrings!!! Now I just need to figure out how to work out the necklace part of the equation. Maybe I can find a long tie box...But I was really excited how this turned out!!

The lid is what makes it all possible!

I need to move the Earring holder down more now that I know the height of the items on my dresser. (it fits the things around the wall on the sides of it, so it doesn't look bad when you walk into the room, but when I take a picture of just this area it is obvious that it is placed too high. So I will fix that : )

Here is my cake stand Jewelry holder. I am not sure how I feel about it yet. It might be a mistake. You know how sometimes you can't tell whether you like something or not...this is one of those times. I will know eventually(let me know what you think...)

If I had a place to hang it seriously I would make one too. that is sooooo cute.
The jewelry box that I have I can hang necklaces and i have a place for bracelets but my earrings are always a mess. I just don't know where I would ever hang that. But I LOVE it

Thanks Everyone!! I was pretty excited how it turned out too! Collette-I hope you post yours so I get to see it! Jenna-that way nice of you! Your little girl is so cute!! I really like you blog! Mom-You are right I should have used wire. If it breaks I am going to redo it with wire instead.
