I pinned it for a possible project in the future, but I haven’t been able to stop thinking about it. Probably because it doesn’t just look nice, but would be very helpful to me and my current random pile of earrings:
If you want to know how my day started just take a look at my ears. If I had a good morning I’ll have on a pair of earrings that go with my outfit. If my morning was rough I’ll have bare ears. It is an extra good day if I also have on matching accessories. It’s unfortunate, but when I’m in a rush these are the things that come last. With my earrings organized I’ll be able to wear earrings even on a rushed morning! Haha, well even if it doesn’t seem like a big deal to you it is clearly one to me because I just finished making my very own earring organizer! The thing I liked most about this project was I was able to use only items in my house. I did not have to go out and purchase ANYTHING! Amazing.
Items you’ll need:
- Shallow box to fit the space you have available
- Styrofoam- perhaps you have an old box with packing still in it?
- Fabric- any type is workable though I’d stay away from slinky or silky because it will shift easily
- Knife- only if you need to cut the Styrofoam
- Scissors- for the fabric
- Tape or your preferred method of adhesive
The blog I originally got this idea from (click on the 1st picture to be connected) is in another language (I think Dutch with a French name?) so I pretty much just came up with my own way to create it with some help from Denise’s pictures.
I tried my best to organize my earrings my category: colored stones, sparkly, metals and pearls, and randoms. I am so excited for getting ready in the morning! Now I can actually see what earrings I have available. There is only one problem! The box looks sad and unfinished. I need to fill in the rest of that box!
