Easy DIY Earring Holder

Hey everyone! I realized that it has been awhile since I put any crafty ideas on here.

(By the way, how do you like the new look on my blog? It was past time to freshen it up a bit and I found that this theme suited me.)

Anyway, today’s project is one that has actually been made and in use for many years at my house already.

It’s not really a new or novel idea, but one that I think looks nice and keeps my dangly earrings semi-organized.

I was on a purging/organizing spree the last two weeks and cleaned up my jewelry area, so I figured I would share my earring organizer and display.

There really isn’t much of a tutorial for it. Basically I had been given an antique wooden picture frame minus any glass. All I did was clean it up and cut a rectangle of window screen out that more than covered the front open area. Then I proceeded to use a heavy duty staple gun to attach the screen to the back part, stretching it out as I went so it was taut.

One could also use chicken wire, lace, or anything else with holes that you could hang earring hooks onto.

I enjoy seeing some of my favorite pairs hanging up in rows. I used to make a lot of jewelry, so probably over half of these are ones I’ve put together at one point or another. All of my post-style earrings are kept in little pinch pots that my kids have made in art class at school.

Anyway, that’s really all I have for you today. Nothing earth shattering or new, but something that does work well for me.

Happy March to everyone. I am more than ready for Spring to arrive!!

  1. This can also be used for post-style earrings simply by putting a ruffle of screening material on a ribbon (or band), and stapling the ribbon with the screen across the lower portion of the frame. (Think of a ruffled skirt !!) Just a thought !!
