I love to stay organized and I love a good organizing project that takes less than 10 minutes to make! This earring organizer is especially great if you like long, dangling earrings that get tangled up easily or prefer an earring holder that lets you see all of your earrings at one glance. The worst part of this project for me was removing the sticker from the back of the aluminum sheet. Why so sticky? The rest of the project is a snap.
MATERIALS FOR THE EARRING HOLDER
- 12″ x 24″ Aluminum Sheet from Home Depot
- Goof Off or other type of sticky goo remover
- Ribbon – about 2 yards
STEP 1 – BEND THE ALUMINUM
Bend the aluminum gently so it forms a soft arc in the center. The aluminum is soft and bends easily, so if you are worried about getting a seam in the metal try putting it over something long and straight, like a stair tread or the straight back of a sofa.
The arc makes it easier to hang and remove the earrings, so the earring backs don’t poke out the back and hit the wall.
STEP 2 – TIE THE BOW
Insert the ribbon ends through the metal openings.
Tie the bow to create a hanger for the earring holder.
STEP 3 – ADD YOUR EARRINGS
The aluminum sheeting comes in other patterns and finishes, so it’s easy to customize it for your own closet.
