I think each person has a tendency to accessorize with one type of jewelry more than the others instead of owning equal amounts of necklaces, bracelets earrings, or rings. My daughter and I, for example, love earrings more than others. We both have jewelry organizer boxes but they have a limited number of spots for earrings to give space to necklaces, bracelets, and rings. I decided to make an earring holder organizer that she can use not only to store but also to display.
- She doesn’t need to put away the organizer. It sits on her library shelf.
- It holds both her studs as well as dangle earrings
- No more earrings laying around the room or lost earrings.
- 2 Photo Frames (5″ x 7″ or 8″ x 10″)
- 1″ Hinges
- Craft metal Sheet
- 1″ Poly Foam
- Screw Driver or Drill
- Glue Gun
- Box Cutter
- Heavy duty scissors
This earring holder organizer is super simple to make. You can also watch the tutorial video at the end of this post after reading the step-by-step instructions with the photos below.
First, take out the glass and backsides out of the photo frames.
Measure the craft metal sheet to fit into the photo frame and mark it by clipping it with scissors.
This specific metal sheet could break when bent. That’s what I did
The sheet broke at the small dots as if it was perforated. Simple enough.
Place the metal sheet into the frame and secure it in place with the clips. This is the dangle earring holder side.
For the studs, I used poly foam. Mark the foam to fit into the frame and cut it with scissors.
I used a glue gun to secure the foam into the frame. This is the stud earring side.
It’s time to put the frames together. Align the frames, front sides touching together, and place the hinges where you want to screw them in.
Put the screws in to install the hinges to the frames.
DIY Earring Holder Organizer is almost ready.
Cut 1/2″ deep slits in the foam to put the studs in.
Finally, you can place your earrings on your new earring holder.
I used 5″ x 7″ photo frames for my daughter’s earring holder. I made another one for my sister-in-law using 8″ x 10″ photo frames and a mesh craft metal sheet. That one is in the video below.
