{DIY}: Stud Earring Holder


Creating this updated version of my stud earring holder was very simple. I had been wanting to update the look of my previous holder to increase the visual esthetic of my bedroom. Functionality, for studs and hooks, the holder is still very appropriate and the addition of the metal increases the overall integrity of the holder. I purchased my frame from IKEA and the perforated sheet metal from Home Depot. Home Depot offers a range if different sizes and style of perforated sheet metal, including varying sizes of holes. They do sell a  style that is more suited for studs, but I loved the design of the style that I purchased.


 Materials:
  • Perforated sheet metal
  • IKEA TOLSBY Picture frame
  • Tin snips
Directions:
  1. Measure the insert of the frame to the sheet of metal.
  2. Carefully cut the perforated sheet metal (Caution the metal sharp and little pieces of metal and float around or end up on the surface you are cutting them on.) 
  3. Cut to size 
  4. Fit into frame
  5. Assemble frame to base
Optional: Paint frame

If you are into DIY or more personal gifts for the holiday, this would be a simple and creative gift to give someone!

Enjoy!

XOXO,
Carolyn

  2. Great idea! I need something like this. Currently I throw all my jewelry into a box, which causes everything to get scattered and/or tangled. This is too cute.

    Carolyn, this is so smart! I actually have a decorative metal sheet similar to yours that I bought months and months ago but haven't figured out a purpose for it yet. Just love your solution! Thanks for linking up to Best of the Nest!
