Easy DIY Earring Organizer

Easy DIY Earring Organizer - DesignLively

I am an accessories girl.

Accessories are less commitment, easy add-ons, and can be inexpensive (!).

You’ve already seen my DIY Necklace Rack.

I love having some of my jewelry on display so I wear different pieces more often. I keep the rest in two green fabric boxes on my dresser.

When it came to earrings… I didn’t have a very good solution.

I was re-organizing my earrings one day when the idea came to me. While I’m sure this isn’t the most original idea I could have thought of, it was fast, easy and free. How much better can it get?

I used an old needlework hoop I had sitting around in my craft supplies and a scrap of gray/white seersucker fabric.

I stuck the fabric in the hoop, snipped off the excess and voila.

For now it’s just hanging on a removable 3M hook. (I wanted to make sure I liked using it before committing.)

And I’ve been happy with it! It’s very easy to get the earrings off and put them back on.

So this is my happy little get-ready corner.

I store the rest of my jewelry in those two little green boxes.

You might have already noticed some visual changes on the blog here – and it’s about time. Things around these parts haven’t changed one bit for the last two years – so I’m trying out some new things! Let me know if you love/hate it. I’m still exploring myself!

What’s your favorite accessory. I can’t decide if I like earrings or scarves better… : )

TDC Before and After

DIY Necklace Rack

 

I found this old frame on the side of the road a few months ago before we moved. I was originally going to use it for my DIY Chalkboard project, but the canvas was too bumpy for the chalkboard surface.

I ripped out the painting (sorry Miss Artist. It actually had a note on the back. Someone gave it to their Grandmother as a Christmas gift in the 1960s. Too funny.) and spray painted the frame white. Then I used pushpins to determine how far apart to put my hooks.

Then I inserted the hooks. This took a lot of…. determination. There was a thick plastic-like coating on the frame (it wasn’t hardwood) so I needed to use some extra elbow grease to put the hooks in. (A rubber mallet and a pair of pliers also helped.)

The frame already had the frame mounting hardware, so I just need to put it on the wall and add my necklaces.

This project cost me a cool $0.00, since I already had the spray paint and hooks and I found the frame on the side of the road. With some garage sale luck though, you might be able to pull off this project for somewhere around $6-8.

 

How do you keep your necklaces from getting tangled up?
