My daughter has a lot of earrings. She has pretty jewelry boxes but she has so many costume style earrings, that they are overflowing. She and I have been brainstorming on ideas to make something easily accessible, portable, and that can store a lot of earrings. After much thought, this is what we came up with.
The only supplies needed are a paper towel roll, masking tape, scissors, shelf liner (the gripper kind with little holes in them), ribbon, and acrylic paint.
First, my daughter painted the paper towel roll in lots of fabulous colors. When painting these, don't use any water on your brush or sponge. It will weaken the cardboard. Using acrylic paint with a dry brush approach helps strengthen the cardboard somewhat.
Here's a better view of the dried paper towel roll.
Next, we cut a section of shelf liner the length we desired and the width of the paper towel roll. We simply used masking tape to attach it to the roll. Then, we took purple ribbon and taped it over the masking tape to make it look nicer.
