5. Earring holder by I Always Pick The Thimble.
Most women can never have too many earrings. Having a place to hang all the earrings, though, can be a problem. I Always Pick the Thimble takes a 12-inch (30 cm) by 24-inch (61 cm) sheet of aluminum and gently bends it into an arc. She then feeds the ribbon through the top and ties a bow from which to hang the earring holder. The arc keeps the backs of the earrings from hitting the wall. You now have plenty of space for all your extra earrings.
