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.

Supplies used in this project

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.

Detail of earrings hanging on the chicken wire

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!

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.


Great idea!

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!
