Our screen door leading to the backyard was punched through a few too many times thanks to our littles.
I finally got around to replacing it. When I was finished, there was about a foot of leftover window screening.
I decided that my summer long crafting hiatus had come to an end, so I repurposed the extra screening into an earring holder. I also solved the issue of having to dig through my overflowing jewelry box from 7th grade to find each earring’s match. Win, win.
If your earrings are scattered all throughout the house like mine were, here is an easy tutorial on how to make this earring holder.
- Window screening (it comes on a roll in the windows section at your local hardware store).
- A picture frame. I used oval but you could use any shape.
- A hot glue gun or staple gun.
Take the glass out of the picture frame. Use the glass as a pattern to cut the shape out of your window screening. Hot glue the screening onto the back of the frame (You may want to use a pencil eraser to push it it place so you don’t burn your fingers on the glue that comes through the screening – I learned that one the hard way). You could use a staple gun as well if the wood in your frame is thicker. Hang your earrings and you are done!
I keep my earring holder resting on the counter in the bathroom, but it would look awesome hanging on the wall as well.
