Earrings Organized


Hello there! Thanks so much for dropping by.
On my blog this week, I'll be showing you
different things you can do with
frames like these:

I got these at the yard sale. In case you find something
like this at a flea market or thrift store and the
price is right, please buy it!

Because from blah, we can turn it into...

TADA! -- a place to organize lovely earrings!


Attach a clean produce sack or chicken wire
at the back of the frame using tacks or
a staple gun.

Then add on the earrings!
You can hang necklaces & bracelets too,
using small hooks or re-shaped paper clips.

It will make picking accessories a breeze
since your choices are neatly laid out before you.

  1. Awesome! I have some extra window screen stuff around here so that may be what I use on mine. Thanks for the inspiration!

  4. You can also use cross stitch fabric or old stockings/leggings to hold the earrings.

  6. Such an awesome idea! My mom taught me at a young age to snatch up frames at yard sales and thrift stores. It's amazing how just b/c you might not like the artwork or color in them, they will be 50c verses $15 new at the store empty! I always have a few cans of spray paint in the ready to fix up frames. I don't think I've ever bought one new at the store - I always salvage ones! :)

  12. This is such a good idea! Right now my earrings are all crammed in a box and I keep the ones I wear the most on my desk, but this is the perfect solution! At home, I hang them from a necklace chain but this is a much better idea.
