I have a lot of earrings and wanted to have an easy way to store the ones I use the most so I can have quick access to them when I get ready in the morning. So I came up with this idea for a really simple and inexpensive DIY earring organizer that can hang from a towel rod or rail. It’s perfect for small bathrooms that don’t have a lot of counter space, and best of all, it only takes minutes to make and only costs a few dollars in materials!

What you’ll need:

Materials: small frame – $1 (from the dollar store – 9″ x 11″), plastic mesh canvas – $2 (from the fabric store – 10.5″ x 13.5″), ball chain (on hand), long prong brads (online) – $2, paint (optional)

Tools: Scissors, drill, paint brush (optional)

Step 1:

Remove the glass and any metal clips from the frame and drill holes around the frame, evenly spaced out (I painted my frame with gold metallic paint before drilling).
awesome idea!!! i have a crapton of unused plastic canvas, and a crap of earrings. thanks ☺
<p>Thanks! Glad it will help you organize all your earrings!</p>
i did it! and with the top holes I just tacked it to my wall next to my dresser, which used to be covered in earrings.
Love it!!!!!! Instead of using brads you could just hot glue a picture frame and a ribbon for a hangar onto it.
Sure, that would work too! This is an easy project to customize to work with what you have on hand.
I like this idea!!! I used to love doing plastic canvas art and now I just do have any time so I think I still alot of plastic canvas left over...Thanks for the great idea..
You're welcome!
@EYSpace Well,looks like it! ^-^
@EYSpace How in ze world did you come up with this? It's genious! Oh,and if I posted twice,I am very sorry because my phone is sooooo stupid. -,...,-'
Thanks! I don't remember exactly how it came to me but I knew when I bought that mesh canvas that it would come in handy one day and it eventually did!!
@EYSpace Sorry. My phone is retarded. But anyway,how'd you come up with this? I mean,I never would have. Not saying I am smarter,but...Jesus. I just ramble on and on,don't I? -,...,-'
Omg,this was so freaking simple!
I agree, it was really easy and quick to make!
Oooh I have lots of that plastic canvas and need to organize my earrings too!
That's great! Hope you'll share some pics of your version!
