Learn how to make your own earring holder stand with this easy tutorial. It’s a very pretty way to store and display your earrings!
I don’t have many earrings. I usually wear the same ones every day. My sister has a huge collection of very unique earrings (which I like to borrow sometimes 😉 ), so she uses a giant jewelry rack to store them. I, on the other hand, have like 4 or 5 pairs of earrings in a little box on my nightstand. Well, I decided it was time to get them out of there so I can start to actually use them. I saw some pretty earring holders on Pinterest, so I wanted to make my own. It was really easy, since I already had all the materials needed. I want to show you how I made it, so that you can also make one for yourself!
This is what I used:
– Some skinny wooden sticks (I bought them at Walmart)
– Strong glue or hot glue
– Scissors (or a better tool to cut the sticks!)
– Optional: Acrylic paint in any color you like (I used a matte white paint)
– Optional: Foam brush
How to make it
1: Cut 11 sticks to 4 inches long each.
2: You can use scissors, but if you have a better tool to cut wood, use that one instead! (If you use scissors, be careful with the cut sticks flying to your face! 😛 )
3: Grab 2 more sticks, but don’t cut them. (Their original size is around 5.5 inches long.)
4: Start gluing the short sticks to the long ones. I glued the top and the bottom ones first. (See picture 5.)
5: Now you will have formed a rectangle.
6: Glue the center stick next. (This makes it easier to align them all.)
7: Now, glue the rest of the sticks; 4 on the top part, 4 on the bottom part.
8: Take 4 of the smaller sticks that you cut on the first steps, (they measure around 1.5 inches long) and glue 2 of them together. Glue the other 2 together also. Grab 2 more sticks, and leave them in their original size.
9: Glue the smaller sticks to the bottom, and the long sticks to the back. (Use the picture as a guide.) Leave it to dry.
10: Cut 3 more sticks to a bit more than 4″ inches long. (See the picture.)
11: Apply glue to the corners of 2 of them. (These ones will go on the bottom of your earring holder.)
12: Glue them to the bottom using the picture as a guide. (This will make your earring holder more stable. You will use the third stick on the next step.)
13: Apply a drop of glue to each of the top 2 corners.
14: Glue the third stick to the top of your earring holder. (This will give it a nicer finish.)
15: That’s it! Make sure you give each step enough time for the glue to dry.
16: Optional: Now you can paint it with any color that you like. (I chose white, and I painted it in a streaky kind of weathered look.)
DIY Earring Holder
After the paint has dried, you can hang your pretty earrings any way you like.
I really love how it turned out; it’s the perfect size for my nightstand, where I use to keep them, and it looks very interesting and unique. I love it!
