Easy earring hangers made from found frames and stitching screens.
Painted with leftover house paint. Stitching frame was cut to fit and a thick layer of hot glue placed on top to keep it in place.



If your frame is deep enough you can also staple a piece of fabric in the back. Just make sure the ear wires have enough room to stick out the back.
Easy and cheap!

That looks awesome. I've been trying to find a way to keep my earrings on display so I don't have to rummage through a jewelry box. My current solution is hanging them over the brim of a cup, but this would work for studs as well. I definitely need to try this!

I am sorry but what is stitching screen? is it the same as plastic canvas? I have a thrifted frame I have been wanting to convert for a while but this looks like a good way to do it.

This is a plastic screen/canvas used for things like cross-stitch and such. It's very easy to fin at craft stores and there are several color and size options.

You could use many different kinds of screens or mesh. I've seen some that used chicken coop metal mesh although I prefer the small holes in the stitching screen since I can hang a lot of earrings.

That's such a great display, I'd love to make one for myself. The earrings are nice too from what I can see Smiley.

Much easier than my window screen idea I had.  I will have to try this out, it looks a heck of a lot easier than window screen to glue down.

Cooool! I was planning on doing this with an awesome frame I found at an estate sale a few years ago. I don't know why I never thought of the stitching screen, I was just going to hope to find some kind of metal mesh or something. Thanks for the post!
