Upcycling: earring holder

I tend to wear the same 5 or 6 pair of earrings day after day. These are my everyday-favorite earrings. At the end of the day, I throw them in a little dish. The process starts over the next morning when I dig around the little dish trying to find a matching set.

Here’s my solution.

To make an earring holder like this, you’ll need:
- A frame
- Fabric
- String
- Mini clothes pins

Here’s what I started with.

Yes, another dollar store find. No offense to the bird artist but I needed the frame. I covered the birds with a piece of heavy white paper so there would be no show-through.

Good bye birds, sorry.

Then I used a piece of muslin and stapled around the back of the frame. I added string and miniature clothes pins. I used a dab of glue behind each clothes pin to support the earrings.

Now I have no excuse to wear mismatched earrings.


  1. I love this idea. I actually already have a bag of mini clothespins leftover from another project... now I have something to use them on.

  2. This is so adorable. Love it! The colors are great.
