I’m back! And very very grateful to have a camera that works! You can expect more consistent posting now. I have a list of projects waiting to share with you! The first one, today, is a simple diy earring holder.
I’ve been on an organizing spree and recently spent some time sorting through my jewelry. I had an earring holder than I made from a frame and some screen, but it hasn’t gotten a lot of use. It wasn’t super convenient. I had to take it off the wall put attach earrings that have backs. And it also couldn’t hold all my earrings. I don’t have a ton, but it was a smaller frame.
My solution was simple, I think it’s pretty cute, and it should be functional, too!
two push pins
two small wooden bamboo dowel rod things (how’s that for specific?)
and a large needle and a cork trivet (for poking holes in the labels for the earrings)
What I Did:
I poked two holes in each shipping label, for the earrings to hang through. I adjusted where the holes were on the labels considering the size of the earrings. I used a large embroidery needle to make the holes, and put the labels on top of a cork trivet so the needle wasn’t poking through and damaging anything. Then I tied the string on the label with a knot near the end, and I hung the labels on the dowel rod stick thing. I used two dowels to make it a little sturdier.
I decided where to hang it in our room (above my nightstand). I used two push pins, stuck in the wall (they make pretty small holes) for the dowels to rest on. When I want to pack earrings, I can just slide the labels off the dowels and pack the earrings that way. I think I’ll sew a little bag that can hold the labels and earrings.
Pretty simple, don’t you think? If you don’t have shipping labels, you could cut card stock to size, punch a hole in the top and use some twine/yarn for hanging. I think I’m going to like (and use) this new earring holder! How do you have your jewelry organized?
Have a blessed weekend, friends!
