Vincent Van Gogh Severed Ear Earring Holder

I like to be organized - so I came up with this little stuffy inspired by the severed ear of Vincent van Gogh. My earrings were is such disarray that I had trouble finding matching pairs. Now with my "ear" I have them all in one nice little place and finding matching pairs is much easier!! Hope you make my little severed ear and organize your own earrings - thanks and enjoy!!

    <b>Finding the perfect ear</b>
    Find a friend that has really big ear lobes - they work the best. WIth your digital camera take a nice up close picture. Using your computer photo program decide on the size you would like to make your ear - my ear measures 8x4. Print out on paper - this is going to be your pattern to use to make your ear.

    <b>Adding the details</b>
    Here I decided to give some ear hair to my stuffed ear - I just used some thick black thread and left about 5 loops that I finished off in the back of the ear then cut the loops to make them look like scary ear hair. Have fun with the details - add warts, veins or just about and thing that might be on an ear!
