But enough about depressing subjects. This week, I got a comment on my blog from someone who said they'd like to see some earring holder patterns. In case you weren't aware, I do have a very lovely earring holder pattern up in my Etsy shop. It's one of my best sellers!

Simple Earring Holder
- Wooden frame
- Plastic Canvas
- Hot glue
- If your frame came with glass and a backing, remove those.
- Carefully cut plastic canvas so that it sits inside the lip on the backside of the frame, but isn't too small to fall through.
- Lay the plastic canvas inside the frame. Using the hot glue gun, apply a thick layer of hot glue on top of the plastic canvas. Use the nose of the got glue gun, or a wooden skewer, to smear the glue around, making sure it sinks into the holes in the plastic canvas and up the sides of the frame lip. Use lots of glue. Go over it twice if you need to. The point is to create a thick layer that is attached to the wood that will hold the plastic canvas in.
And that's it! You can prop this up on a dresser, or attach a wire to hang on a nail. I just hang mine using the frame lip, though that's not very stable. Again, I have the lazies.
Well, I hope you enjoyed my simple little pattern today! Have a wonderful weekend!
