Hello, Everyone! Isn't this website just the best?! I'm constantly referring to it - it is so useful!
I've found a way to make my own "Ear Lifts", using clear packing tape, bought at the dollar store, waxed paper, and scissors. Stick a couple of inches of tape to the waxed paper. Then, just cut out your own ear lifts. When you want to use one, just peel off the waxed paper, and stick it to the back of your earlobe, the same way you do with "Ear Lifts". So much cheaper and just as effective!

Editor's Note: If you are unfamiliar with this product (as I was), it is to keep your earlobes from stretching out when wearing earrings.

Has anyone out there come up with a DIY version of earring stabilizers that keep your earrings from sagging on your earlobes? I'm talking about something similar to the Magic Bax product, which is overpriced.
Thanks in advance for any replies to my question!
Pull out the eraser from a pencil and use that.
earring stabilizers work in the same way that hardware to hang framed paintings to walls work - they are elongated and distribute the weight over a larger area so that the droop doesn't happen.
for a real DIY and low effort experience I would probably just use a paperclip; hopefully one of the plastic encased ones to avoid a weird reaction from the metal
or you could out of some cardboard or balsa wood design something like a stabilizer, but it would probably be disposable IE for only wearing once
I found these on ebay and they are $3.50 for a pack of stabilizers. I am not sure what they are made out of but they look nice.
Here's a page on ThriftyFun about making your own:
You can punch one #1 plastics with a larger hole punch and use the punched circle by piercing it it a needle then threading it on the back of the post before putting on the back. Be sure there are no tough edges. Not perfect, but very inexpensive. This doesn't work well with wires, just posts.
Some neat DIY suggestions and there are even more on the Internet but I did not see any that resembled the shape/style of the Magic Bax product.
