DIY Framed Earring Holder

For my latest project, I took an old frame and turned it into place to hang my hook earrings. I think it turned out rather cute.


First I primed the frame with a spray primer.


Then I spray painted the frame a light blue.


With a white paint pen, I added a paisley design to give it some interesting detail.


I let it dry overnight, then added some rubber mesh (used as a mat in cabinets, like contact paper) to the back. It was easy to attach with a staple gun, and then I trimmed of the excess with scissors.


I'm happy with it, though I am kinda bummed that it only holds the "hook" earrings...not the studs or clasp earrings. Oh well...I will need to think of something else.



What projects are you working on? Organizing? Cleaning? Crafting? Anything?

Have a fabulous weekend!

  1. Your earring frame is cute. I love the color. As to holding stud earrings, what about attaching a thin ribbon, fabric,or felt strip that you could put to your mesh and push the stud earrings through. They'd be held to to the ribbon with their backing. Just a thought
