My wife is forever collecting magazines that she plans to eventually sit down and read "someday." Is that a thing? I'm not even sure how many she actually subscribes to but from the piles (and piles) of them around the house I'm willing to bet it's a lot. On the rare occurrence that she does get a minute to flip through one, she then creates piles of torn out pages- usually a recipe or project that she wants to save. This DIY Earring Holder was born from one of those ripped magazine pages.
Lucky for me this was a really simple project to complete. To create this DIY Earring Holder you will need:
- picture frame
- sheet of aluminum
- hot glue
- spray paint (if desired)
You might be able to find decorative sheets of aluminum at your local hardware store, but I just ordered a big sheet of it off of Amazon. You will need some industrial scissors or special snips (only $10) to cut the sheet down to size. Spray paint the piece of aluminum the color of your choosing and allow it to dry. (I used leftover paint from our Master Bedroom Makeover.) Remove the back piece and glass from your picture frame. Line the inner edge of the frame with a thin line of hot glue. Insert the aluminum into the frame and hold for a few seconds to secure it in place.
I already had the paint and tools to cut the aluminum and Emily already had a frame she purchased at a thrift store for $1, so all told this project only cost about $5. Depending on the size frame you use, you could easily get three DIY Earring Holders out of one sheet. Emily thinks these would make great gifts, especially for teens. (Would also make a great gift for Mother's Day, guys. Hint Hint.)
