In today’s post I will show you guys how to make this easy and inexpensive DIY | Earring Holder.
- Glue Gun
- Glue Sticks
- Wooden Sticks
- Picture Frame
- Plastic Grid
- Spray Paint
Now I already had the glue gun, glue sticks and spray paint on hand. So I went out and purchased the picture frames from the Dollar Tree, the wooden sticks from Wal Mart, I think they were around $2.97 for the pack. I picked up the plastic grid from Michael’s for $0.79.
Let’s get started! First start by removing the back of your picture frame and the glass as well. Take your frame to a well ventilated area and spray paint it any color of your choice, or don’t spray paint. You can leave it as it if you want to!
Once your frame is dry, take a pair of pliers and remove the hardware
Then you’ll take your plastic grid and lay it onto of your picture frame so you can visually see and mark off with a pen if needed, where to cut your plastic grid so that it fits into the frame.
Once you have your plastic grid cut down to size you will add a thin layer of hot glue onto the frame itself.
Then you will place your plastic grid onto the glue, I also added another layer of hot glue onto the plastic grid to ensure it would last and hold up over time. It should look like this when you’re done.
Now you’ll take two wooden sticks, and one you will cut in half.
And for the other you will cut two small sections off.
Take those two small sections and hot glue them onto the back of your frame towards the bottom, like this.
Now take your two cut halves and hot glue them to each of the small wooden sections at an angle. Hold them in place until the glue dries and add another thin layer to really secure it.
Let’s see how it looks standing up, shall we.
Awesome! You’re done! All you need to do now is add your earrings.
