The last thing I made was a homemade earring holder. I have a LOT of earrings and needed something to view them on other than them being cluttered in a drawer.
I used a picture frame [take out the glass and such] for the outline and stapled wire mesh [that I got from Lowes] to the picture frame. I then spray painted the whole thing black and used pink and white puff paint to write two of my favourite quotes around the edges of the frame.
I would like to do some more do-it-yourself projects, I just need to find the time to do it! There are plenty of things we can make for ourselves and it's fun to have a little weekend project! I really want to build a shelf or something, but need to learn how to do that. I'm also thinking of possibly making some of my own jewelry. We will see!
