I have a lot of earrings and wanted to have an easy way to store the ones I use the most so I can have quick access to them when I get ready in the morning. So I came up with this idea for a really simple and inexpensive DIY earring organizer that can hang from a towel rod or rail. It’s perfect for small bathrooms that don’t have a lot of counter space!
What you’ll need:
Materials: small frame, plastic mesh canvas , ball chain (on hand), long prong brads (online) – $2, paint
Tools: Scissors, drill, paint brush (optional)
Step 1: Remove the glass and any metal clips from the frame and drill holes around the frame, evenly spaced out (I painted my frame with gold metallic paint before drilling).
Step 2: With scissors, cut the mesh plastic canvas to the desired size. I cut mine so that it was about 1/2″ wider than the frame all around.
Step 3: Join the frame and the mesh canvas using the long prong brads. You can get them online in many different colors to go with your frame.
Step 4: Fish the ball chain through the top corners of the plastic mesh canvas for hanging. You can also use rope or string.
Step 5: Hang and add earrings: the 1/2″ of mesh at the bottom is the perfect spot for hoop, clip-on or really long earrings.
I hung my earring organizer on the towel rod in my small bathroom and use hooks for my towels instead – works for me! You can use this jewelry organizer with any towel rod, or towel rail and place it anywhere, like on a closet door, or a wall.
