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.

Great Idea
I would have never thought of it! And the fact you can customize it is a bonus.

Those look Awesome! I'm stealing the idea for Friday, if you don't mind. I love that you wanted my display ideas...they consist of throwing shit together at the last minute. I'll post pictures, though, so perhaps you will learn what not to do!
