The DI Idea

I was at the DI the other day (looking for something specific for a project in my head) and I came across a metal candle holder. I looked at it for a while and an idea popped into my head. "This would make a good earring holder" So I payed the dollar for it. I also bought another spiral candle holder at the DI for 50 cents a little while ago. I got some of Randy's scrap wood from building the basement and mod-podged scrapbook paper onto it. Then I put on some 75 cent hooks. I attached it to the wall by my mirror in my room with those sticky velcro things that don't damage your wall.

This is what I got:Here is one candle holder made into a bracelet/watchband keeper

next we have the tree shaped candle holder that is holding my dangling earrings. (kinda hard to see because of the shadow it put off in my room.)

Here is the finished product! I finally have a place for ALL my jewelry. (I put my stud earrings in a little wooden box)

I am wondering though....What do YOU think? is it weird or cute or maybe even cuegly? I like it. I think it is cute and efficient and it only cost me around $2.50. Can't beat that right?

If you like it that is all that matters. I'm just wishing I had some cute jewelry to sport. I can count all of my jewelry on one hand.
