The DIY earring organizer was one of the first blog posts on C.R.A.F.T. It’s also one of my all time fave projects and the original earring organizer still hangs on my bathroom wall to this day. Although, we just moved into our first real house, I’m a pro at living in small spaces. Utilizing every nooks and crannies is essential to making a small space work for you. I love to hang these on the backs of the doors or even add free standing doors to organize whole spaces, like I did with my kitchen door organizer or the re make of the door to organize kids school stuff!
Ready to learn how to make your own earring organizer with a picture frame and a wire mesh?
Here’s what you need to make an earring organizer
- Any size picture frame
- Staple gun
- Spray paint
- Painters tape
- Window screen (I bought an old screen at Habitat Re-Store for $1 and cut it up.)
How to make an earring organizer
Step 1- Hunt down a window screen
The window screen is easier to find than you might think. If you live in a big city, check out your local Habitat Re-Store for an old window screen. Here’s the one I bought for this project. Use a pencil to trace your frame and cut the screen out. I’ll probably make a few more earring organizers as gifts for friends at some point.
Step 2- Spray paint
After you cut the screen, it’s time to spray paint. I used Frog Tape to make nice crisp lines with my spray paint, like so…
Step 3- Staple the screen
Then, staple the screen to the back of the picture frame. You can’t use a regular stapler for this project. You need an upholstery staple gun for this DIY project.
Step 4- Hang
You can easily hang the earring organizer on the wall with a small nail, but I love these picture hanging strips, especially if you are a renter. (I’m obsessed and use the strips everywhere!) You could put the earring organizer on the back of a door, wall, or even just set her on the counter. You’ve got options, baby!
