DIY Cute Earring Holder

I am still very limited on my mobility so I have spent several hours (days!) on Pinterest. I came across an adorable earring holder and knew that I had to make one. Luckily, I had an old picture frame that was perfect size for the project. 


I used acrylic craft paint and a foam brush.


I added several coats of paint and then went over with a darker brown paint to give a distressed look.


I cut six pieces of floral wire at the same length, then twisted them around to form one large wire. I am using this for longer, chandelier earrings, so I used only four tiers.


I stapled the wire to the picture frame and then twisted the excess around. I stretched it to the other side, very tightly, and stapled that side.


The finished project! I just love it! I have several more things to fill it up with but by this point I was worn out and needed to rest.

I got the idea from here:


I hope you make a beautiful earring holder, too!

Adorable! I made something similar for my necklaces, but I could use an earring holder, too!

Both the original and yours turned out so very pretty! Turning the old into new brings a great feeling doesn't it. Wonderful job.
