Organize your dangling/chandelier earrings in a decorative frame and show off your collection.

Step 1: Materials

Materials: (can be purchased at any craft store)

simple/decorative frame (i used a long frame with detailed framing)
cardboard matching the size of your frame (from any box lying around)
plastic mesh sheet (can be found in the knitting section; if you go to a craft store you can choose from many colors; i choose a lighter color to contrast my darker earrings; depending on the size of your frame, you may need more than one sheet)
hammer and nails (to hang the frame)
glue/flat tacks
maybe if you were to hang to frame from the celling, so that it can be spun around. that way you could put your studs earrings through, and spin it around to get to the back of the frame? or attach the frame on to a sturdy base that spins all the way around? like the ones you get in a restaurant, sits in the middle of the table. or attach a stand to the frame?
I really liked this idea and i have over 50 pairs of dangly earrings! i can't wait to leave work so i can go home and get started on my project! I also have a lot of stud earrings. anyone have any ideas on how to organize them? It would be hard to get them off this frame thing considering it would be against the wall.
I actually have more but the frame is too small. I have lots of stud earrings too. I haven't found a way to organize them though.
I'm jealous of your dangly earring collection!
I bought a cheap painting canvas on a frame, punched little holes into it and hung it on the wall.
This is a neat twist on an old idea, which I've seen in Workbasket craft magazine in the 1970s, again in the 1980s, then again in the 1990s. It's also is used at craft fairs quite a bit in our area. I've seen both regular window screen and the teflon kind, sometimes airbrushed or spraypainted and sometimes left as is, used to make these earring holders. First time I've seen plastic canvas used, though.
Cool idea! Now I just need pierced ears.
Oh my... You don't have pierced ears?
I like this a lot. Much fancier than I have. I was so frustrated a few years back b/c they just don't sell things like this to hang your earings on so I got a splatter "net" for your pans on the stove and bent the handle back and decorated it with ribbon and what not but this is much nicer. Good instrucatable. I might have to try this when I get out of college houseing:)
