Crafty Christmas gifts- Earring "Tree"

Custom made earring "tree" from a photo tree
 Hello Everyone, I made a gift for dd that I wanted to share with everyone.  My dd loves earrings and was running out of places to store them.  I went out shopping to try to find a solution but many of the earring trees were too small for her collection.  I kept looking trying to come up with a way to craft a solution.  I found this Photo Tree at Michael's.  Purchased it at 50% off and bought a piece of fine mesh canvas.  I took the ovals apart, removing the plastic film (that would protect your photos). I used it to trace ovals on the fine mesh canvas.  There was a piece of foam in the frame to fill the space and I kept it as a stabilizer for the earrings.  The ovals can support both studs and dangling earrings.  Some of her earrings had a levered post, so they did not fit in canvas supports, so we just hooked them over the several nodes in the tree (see photo below).
This is working quite well for her, she can easily remove and put back the earrings.  I hope you find this post useful, please let me know what you think.  I always love hearing from you.
