Introduction: Earring Display

A simple way to display earrings.

Step 1: Materials

A picture frame, decorative aluminum grating, hot glue gun and glue, wood scraps, ruler, pen, picture hanger.

Step 2: Adjusted the Frame

Added some scraps of wood to make the frame sit further from the wall, used the hot glue

Step 3: Measure and Cut

Took the cardboard out of the frame and used it as a template to cut the grate. I used heavy shears but kitchen shears would have worked.

Step 4: Glue It

Glued all around the back to keep it from falling out or moving.

Step 5: Added a Hanger

Selected a hanger, measured to find the center, hammered it on.

Step 6: Hung on Some Earrings

Would have looked better if I had painted the grating but this one is as you see it.

Is the grate made of wood? Is it something that is sold at places like Lowe's or Home Depot? If not where would one find a grate like this?

It is aluminum, Home Depot calls it:

MD Building Products 1 ft. x 2 ft. Satin Nick Elliptical Aluminum Sheet

I couldn't find it at my local Lowes but the Home Depot had it, I am sure it could be found at better hardware stores. I chose this pattern as it looked like I could hang stud earrings on it. There are other patterns that I liked but at the cost I only bought one sheet. It was much easier to cut than I thought it would be.

Thanks for the info! I think the grate needs to be added to the list of materials in step 1.
