Making something out of nothing: Earring/ Brooch Holder

I love to take things that I have lying around and make something else out of them. That is exactly what I did when I made this Earring/Brooch Holder. I had a ton of earrings laying in a pile (which of course means I was wearing the same pair over and over because I didn’t feel like digging through the pile) and needed some way to display them, along with my vintage brooch collection.

I took a  free standing floor picture frame that was hanging out at my house and nailed burlap to the back of it with upholstery tacks (which I had leftover from a wooden bottom purse project I did a couple of years ago). The only thing I had to purchase for this project was the burlap which happened to be on sale for a $1 a yard at Hobby Lobby. So the total for this much neded project was $2.12.
