Kayla turned a cabinet door frame, fabric, and chicken wire into this stylish earring rack Supplies used in this project Detail of earrings hanging on the chicken wire
Kayla turned a few scrounged items into this stylish earring rack.
She started with an old cabinet door frame from the Habitat Re-Store – sanding it, filling in holes, and spray painting it Raspberry.
Then her fiance cut a piece of medium-density fiberboard wood (MDF) to fit inside the cabinet door frame.
Kayla covered the MDF board with a vibrant fabric, and laid chicken-wire over the top of it, thumbtacking the wire in place at the edges.
She created a sparkly silver ribbon “mat” inside the frame and attached a sawtooth hanger to the back of the earring rack.
Voila! A unique, stylish earring rack that cost her around $8 to make.
She simply hangs her earrings on the chicken-wire to display them on the earring rack.

Thank you so much for sharing this fun and stylin’ way to roundup / display earrings, Kayla!
I love projects that involve scrounging, repurposing, and using what you have instead of buying something new.
In your tutorial, I appreciate the way you show the “fail” parts as well as the “success” parts! That makes it a better learning resource.
Love this creative earring display idea!

Thank you so much for the feature, Rena!! This was a very fun project, and I have received so many compliments on it from guests that see it. I will eventually make a similar one to hold my necklaces!! Thanks again!
Great job and great tutorial Relly, recycling what you have with such nice finish is really worth a cheer. I am sure you’ll get a lot of attention in Craft Fairs.
A very good idea, and well done! Personally, I find the pattern of the cloth disctracting and would use something more neutral in color, but that’s just me.
Thanks for sharing!
