    I used plastic canvas to make a quick earring holder. I looked for a picture frame at the dollar store that would (a) stand up on my dressing table on its own and (b) look good with its back removed. The one I chose was a scrolly-wrought-iron looking design with feet. Then I took out the glass and the backing and cut a piece of plastic canvas to fit into the frame. Finally, I took metallic silver embroidery floss and whipstitched the plastic canvas into the frame. It holds my French hook earrings nicely and takes up very little space. If I did it over again, I would probably not use the metallic embroidery floss because it really likes to fray at the ends and is difficult to control. I don’t know what I would use instead, though!
