Earring Frame Holders

I came up with the idea for this earring frame holder after raiding my daughter's jewelry box and having a difficult time locating pairs of earrings.


It's the perfect way to display and organize your favorite studs, loops, or dangling earrings for easy access and it creates a nice little fashion statement, too.

Want to make one of your own?

You will need:
  1. Wood picture frame
  2. Plastic mesh (or chicken wire)
  3. Sandpaper
  4. Gesso
  5. Acrylic paints
  6. Paintbrush
  7. Modeling paste (or joint compound or vinyl spackling)
  8. High gloss spray varnish (or brush-on Triple Thick gloss glaze)
  9. E-6000 glue (or staples and staple gun)
To make your earring holder frame, follow these simple steps:
  • Remove glass, if necessary.
  • Sand down wood frame until it’s smooth.
  • Prime the wood with Gesso.
  • Apply modeling paste to the front of the frame, sculpting it as necessary.
  • Stick embellishments into the wet modeling paste.
  • Allow the modeling paste to dry for 48 hours.
  • Paint over the modeling paste with Gesso and let dry.
  • Paint over the Gesso with acrylic paint.
  • Allow the paint to dry for 3 hours.
  • Seal the design a high gloss spray varnish or brush-on glaze.
  • Allow the varnish to dry for 24 hours.
  • Adhere a sturdy piece of plastic mesh or chicken wire to the backside using E-6000 glue.

Art and functionality... what's not to love?
