DIY Earring Holder: Upcycled Items Project

DIY Earring Holder is upcycled from would-be trash I had around the house. I love when I find new uses for things that would have otherwise been thrown away!

First, I will start off by apologizing for not sticking to my own agenda!  It’s been busy at the Zoo and I had to take some family time to get some things done, so posting was neglected!!!!  I’m not gonna promise it won’t happen again, because I would probably be lying!  😀  However, I will do my best!!!

I took an old frame that I had bought at Dollar Tree a while back and decided to re-purpose it!   It no longer fit my decor anyway!

I painted it first with a solid color, then again with glitter paint.

DIY Earring Holder: Upcycled Items ProjectI had an old wire mesh strainer that was coming apart from it’s holder, so I took the wire out of the broken strainer to use for my holder.  😀
DIY Earring Holder: Upcycled Items ProjectI used my hot glue gun to glue the mesh down after stretching it out.  Just remember, it dries fast so you have to move fast!  I would glue an area, clamp it, then move to the next area.  If you don’t have clamps, you can use some heavy object, just do one spot at a time.  Messing up is an easy fix, just peel off the glue and do it again!  It won’t mess up the paint, so no worries!!!DIY Earring Holder: Upcycled Items ProjectI used some balloon ribbon to hang it.  Since the frame had designs cut into it, I simply ran the ribbon through.  If your frame doesn’t have design cut through it, you could use a pop tab on each side or just glue the ribbon directly to the frame.  I liked that since I didn’t glue it directly, I could easily change the way it is hung.DIY Earring Holder: Upcycled Items Project
Here is the finished project.  I took a knife and ran it between the
ribbon and my thumb to  curl it.  Different directions make different
curls.  If you use metallic ribbon, remember to curl on the back side
otherwise it won’t curl!!!


Hi all! My name is Kaycee. I am now learning to navigate life as a single woman. Turns out, it's not all about husband and children. Who knew? So, I'm on a journey of self discovery. I have 5 children, 3 of which are married, 5 2 are in Heaven (my beautiful baby Acadia Reign and my Diva Princess Tara Elizabeth), and 7 grandchildren! Plus, a ton of fabulous nieces and nephews! My educational background is in Psychology and Child Development but my heart is in ministry, crafts, fun, reviews and my website, My Crafty Zoo. Or at least it was, now I'm learning who I really am, beneath all of the busy family life. It's an adventure to be sure. I look forward to continuing to share my life through word and pictures with you and love hearing your feedback! Thank you for taking the time to read and allowing me to share! I look forward to reading your comments!
