girl gone crafty

As mentioned yesterday, I'm obsessed with Pinterest. Duh. There are all these crafty ideas that, in reality, I probably will never make, but then there are a few that are simple enough for even ME to do!
Gotta love that. When I saw this, I knew I had to make it.
It has to be one of the easiest projects ever...it only took about 20 minutes and $1.47!!
You'll need:
a staple gun (or small nails)
pliers
picture hanging wire
a maker (optional)
an empty frame (mine is 12x12)

I have all these girly pictures left from my high school and college rooms just waiting for projects. This particular frame was perfect for this one!
No need to paint or anything; it was the perfect color for our room.
I just pulled all the "guts" out and got busy...easy peasy!

Cut a few pieces of wire into the lengths you need (with a little extra on each side), mark where you want to staple, then start stapling! Wrap the extra wire up around itself for a little extra sturdiness, and voila!, a perfect earring frame.
(is anyone surprised by my blurry pictures? didn't think so ;))

I love being able to clearly see my choices without digging through my jewelry box!

I used to just put all my jewelry on bulletin boards when I was in college - but this is much dressier! haha
