Birds on a Wire
I LOVE my new earring displays!!! My friend Natalie of OrganicStills suggested that I try using ribbons and frames to display my earrings for the upcoming craft show so I went a-Google-ing and found Joyful Abode's earring displays and went running from there.
I modified the idea to a) craft quicker, b) display earrings only and c) use more tape.
I picked up two frames at Ross for about $5 each, selected my prettiest toile fabrics and coordinating ribbons and got to stapling! I used the existing cardboard in the frames and stretched and taped my fabric over them. I stapled in the ribbons and went over all the reverse side edges with more packing tape. Total project time: About 10 minutes for TWO frames.
I was a bit concerned about sagging ribbons but I've had these two frames up for DAYS with tons of earrings displayed on them and still, no catastrophic sagging. A better way to do these I think would be to SEW the ribbons to the cardboard. Alas, I am lazy.
