What to do with some extra frames?

I got these from a Central New York yardsale 8 years ago and knew I could find a use for them.  Ummm....yeah.

When school started, I used one of the original three to do this:

I should really jazz it up but I was just glad to have a place to put my kids school info.  I know I should paint them, but at least it's out of that room.
So what do I do with the remaining two frames?  I'd love your ideas.

Well, since jewelry seems to be my craft of choice. The first thought that came to mind was an earring holder! Here is a sight to show you how. And you already have the screen! http://www.squidoo.com/earringholder

And if you need to make earrings to put in them I would love to show you how! :)

Misti, I would love to see how. I'm checking out the site as I type. Well, right after I type.

I think I'm leaving a comment in the wrong spot. But, I found your site via another site and loved your blog name! And, the site of your craft room made me laugh. That is what my pantry looks like. Very cute!

a sewn or knitted, etc flower could go in the smaller one...change the angle 90 degrees.

or something w/your cool scrapbooking paper, cut into shapes. holiday themed maybe? 1 per month, or just one that you will like.

A jewelry holder and seasonal frame/picture. I like it! The jewelry one would be great in my room and the seasonal in my craft room---hung up off the floor.
