Craft: Earring Hanger
For quite a long time, I’ve used a small earring organizer to keep my studs and other small earrings that have a stem and a back. It was time for a new, bigger version so I can finally find all of my lovely dangly earrings!

    Optional: Paint the frame the color of your choice. If the frame is recycled and has a finish, you’ll need to give it a light sanding before painting.

    I’m particularly fond of glitter…so I sprinkled some on my frame while it was still wet.

    Once the paint and glitter are dry, place the plastic canvas inside the back of the frame. Go around all four sides with hot melt glue.

    Cut a piece of ribbon long enough to reach from one corner of the frame to the other, plus a little for turning under on the ends. The length here depends on how you want your final product to look and how much of the ribbon you’d like to show. Turn the ends under and staple or tack in place.

    Optional: If you wear studs, look for a frame that will stand by itself. I found this one at my local craft store...the base comes out of the frame itself so it will stand up even without a backing.

Awesome idea! I lose so many earrings that I need one of these! I have the perfect frame for it, but I need one of those crafting grids. Will post version soon.

Now that would be very handy!
I was planning on putting some nails in a piece of board and then hang my necklaces and earrings on that, but this is much prettier!

A lampshade actually sounds kind of cute! I hope you try it, though. Happy

This looks like it's very easy to make and I think it makes a room look funky. Too bad I don't have many dangle earrings (prefer studs...)
