How often do you have to sift through all your earrings to find a matching pair? I was having that trouble a lot since I just kept my earrings in a makeup bag and would just have to dump out all the contents to find anything. So I wanted a way to display my earrings so that a) it would look cute in my room and b) I could actually find my earrings. I bought this frame from Target for $5 and thought it would be perfect for an earring stand. From the dollar store, I bought a fine mesh strainer (or it was a splash guard). Regardless, it was really fine wire mesh that I just cut out with scissors to be the surface I would stick my earrings in. You could also use any other mesh you have on hand.
Now for the hard part…to get the wire mesh onto the back of the picture frame. But remember that this is me, so I will find whatever workaround there is to make it super easy. I took the backing and the glass off the frame. Then I simply hot glued around the edge of the frame where I wanted the mesh to go, put down the mesh, and then put strips of fabric over the mesh to hold the hot glue in place. It doesn’t look the best from the back, but no one will see that part!
Then just prop it up against a wall, and you have a cute new earring holder! I love how mine gives a pop of color to the room. It’s not the sturdiest of designs, but ok for displaying a few pairs of earrings that you wear most often. How do you store your earrings?
