DIY Earring Holder

 I am loving this super cute DIY Earring Holder!

A friend made this up for me and I just love it! I have to be honest and admit that I am not sure I would have come up with using a cheese grater for an earring holder but I just love it.

I have been struggling with finding a way to store my earrings in a cute way that didn’t take up a ton of room or just look plain ugly. This DIY Earring holder is just plain perfect.

Cabo Wabo Tequila Bottle Torch

Have you ever finished a bottle of alcohol and wondered what to do with the nice looking bottle. Some alcohol bottles are so cool looking I hate to throw them out. We decided to make a Cabo Wabo Tequila Bottle Torch. I figure we paid enough for the bottle we needed to find something to do with them. We brought this Cabo Wabo Tequila back from Cabo San Lucas thinking it would be cheaper to buy it from the source than buy it here locally.  It was a bit cheaper to buy it in Mexico but the fear of having it implode in our suitcases might have been more than the few dollars we saved. The odd shape of these bottles made it so they wouldn’t fit in a bottle bag. Thank goodness for tons of ziploc bags and a few prayers.

The Cabo Wabo Tequila Bottle Torches are super easy to make and look great when lit.
