Guess The Mystery Thing: Pretty DIY Earring Display

Well, hiya!  Today brings a fresh new Guess The Mystery Thing challenge.  Can you guess the origin of the fancy half-spheres in these cute earring holders?



As always, we are playing on the honor system.  Do NOT be peeking until you be guessing!  So take a moment and really concentrate...what are those mysteriously familiar objects?

Got your guess?  Then start a-scrollin' for the answer!

I think (maybe, possibly, perhaps?) this is an easy one.  Hint: I found them at the dollar store.

Plastic hair bun covers!  You know what I mean, right?  It's really difficult trying to selfie the back of one's own head, but here's an attempt:



The DIY:

For the tortoise-shell one, I used a headpin to combine two bun covers, with a heavy bead underneath for weight, and a rubber washer in between for stability.  For the white one, I just glued a bun cover into an upside-down crystal candlestick.  Nothing could be simpler!



Now, do tell: did you guess the Mystery Thing?  Let me know in the comments!
