Frame your earrings

Materials: Ribba picture frame

Description: Do you want to find easily all your earrings?

This is what I got from my mom, with the help of my father.

You need to:

1. Buy a Ribba picture frame and some rounded iron sticks.
2. Remove the glass and the back of the frame.
3. Create some holes inside the frame as big as the sticks.
4. Measure the length of the frame and cut the sticks.
5. Fix the sticks in the holes (use some glue if needed).

And the hack is done!

    Color around the edges of the holes with a black sharpie. Then you wont be able to see the exposed insides.

    Very cool idea, I’d use this if someone gave it to me or I’d even buy it. I’m too lazy in the craft department to do this myself. You could sell these.

    you could also make just a small hole (not thru the wood) and find stick which you can press in without having to make the external “decoration” as it’s now only to cover the hole. This way it would be clean on outside.
    Great idea anyway!
