Earring Holders: 7 ideas to organise your giant collection


Its a new year and what better time than now to get your earring collection sorted. Here are 7 easy to DIY earring holders for hanging earrings.

#1 Memo board made for earrings

I have a LOT of earrings, as you can see (these are only my long post earrings!), and standard size earring holders were just too small and cramped.

I wanted something with enough space for everything and room for my collection to grow.

It took about ten minutes to do as it is a simple repurposing, but very effective in my opinion. I love the way it looks, and it was so simple to do.

I will be making a holder for my stud earrings from an IKEA picture frame and some mesh, to compliment the larger one.8

Items used:

Simply fix the board to a wall or door (in my case a door) as per instructions, and instead of adding memos, hang long post earrings from the holes in the mesh! Make sure the board is secure in all four corners.

#2 Minimalist removable earring holder

I chose to hack theMACKAPR into earring holders because I have a very large earring collection. I wanted something minimalist and removable. The cost was under $20.

IKEA item used:
mackapar shoe rack

Other tools and materials:
  • Drill
  • Screw in L hooks
  • Wall plugs

Instructions for large DIY earring holders:

Use the shoe plates in the MACKAPR, legs are not necessary. I mounted them horizontally and used the small holes on the side.

Ensure the L hooks fit the small holes on the side (see picture). If they do not, enlarge with the drill.

I mounted mine to drywall so wall plugs were required. Drill holes in the wall, knock in the wall plugs and screw in the L hooks.

The hardest part was matching the hook length and strength with the hole size. Similar hooks could work well. And if it being removable is not important, then the earring holder could be screwed directly to the wall.

#3 Purse rack and earring holder

I mounted a Grundtal Paper Towel Rack on the wall in my closet to hang my earrings on for easy access. It also holds a clutch handbag or two. See the earring and purse rack.

Nina used the RIBBA frame and hinges to create a one-of-a-kind earring display case. See the tutorial here.

#5 Frame up your earrings

I wanted something fancy to store my tons of earrings, and it would have to fit into my old fashion de viennese pseudo baroque room. I thought the Ung Drill was just perfect for this purpose. See more of the earring picture frame.

#6 From office to earring organizer

Having lots of hook earrings I was looking for somewhere to hang then cause they always get tangled into each other. I had seen the mesh system stapled into a picture frame but I didnt feel like crafting. A quick scan on my office and I found the perfect solution. A DOKUMENT letter tray. See the quick and easy earring organizer.

#7 Cheap and easy earring display

This hack is great for someone like me who loves to own a lot of earrings and need something to display them out neatly without costing too much.

The TOLSBY is an excellent choice for earring display at home and for product selling, I have used this display for my local craft fairs to great effect. See the TOLSBY earring display.
