Why DIY Earring Holder for Studs?
We know you’re wondering why you should bother making an earring holder when you can simply keep it in your jewelry box. Well, the answer is simple. A DIY earring holder for studs offers the following benefits:
1. Easy to Access: With an earring holder, you can easily see all the stud earrings you own. This means that you can quickly decide which ones to wear, and you don’t have to dig through a pile of jewelry in your box.
2. Organized: The earring holder keeps your studs organized. There is no need to worry about misplacing or losing one stud since everything is in one place.
3. Space-saving: An earring holder takes up less space than a jewelry box. You can hang it on the wall or on the back of your door, leaving more space for other items.
To make a DIY earring holder for studs, you will need the following materials:
1. Wooden frame (you can buy one or make it yourself)
2. Burlap fabric
3. Regular fabric
4. Hot glue gun
Step 1: Measure the Wooden Frame
Use a ruler to measure the wooden frame’s size and cut the burlap fabric to the same size as your frame. Once you have cut the burlap fabric, place it on the surface that you will use as your workspace.
Step 2: Place Felt Fabric on Burlap Fabric
Cut felt fabric a little smaller than your burlap fabric, and glue it in place on burlap fabric with a hot glue gun.
Step 3: Cut Small Strips of Burlap Fabric
Measure and cut small strips of burlap fabric of several lengths and widths.
Step 4: Make a Knot with a Strip of Burlap Fabric
Fold the strip of burlap fabric in half and make a knot with it.
Step 5: Apply Glue onto Knots
Apply a dot of hot glue onto the knot’s backside and secure it with felt fabric across your burlap fabric. Repeat this process until you have covered the entire surface with burlap knots.
Step 6: Trim Burlap Knots
Using a scissor trim the burlap knots with a scissor because overhanging burlap can stick to your earrings.
Step 7: Fix the Fabric Onto Wooden Frame
Use a hot glue gun to fix the burlap and felt fabric onto the wooden frame.
Step 8: Hang it up
Once the glue is dry, hang up the earring holder on a hook or nail. Hang it somewhere visible to ensure you can easily access your earrings without getting them tangled!

This holder is specifically designed for studs. However, you can use the same frame and fabric to make an earring holder for other styles.
4. How long will it take to make a DIY earring holder?
It shouldn’t take longer than an hour if you have all the necessary materials.
