How to Make an Earring Organizer

 

This particular DIY is as simple as it gets. It has only three items to put together before you have your jewelry organizer ready to mount on your area of choice.  Let’s get right to it.

Step 1

First, start by measuring out the dimensions of your photo frame. You will need the exact measurements to help you when you’re cutting out the shelf liner.

Step 2

Cut the shelf line according to the measurements you took. Remember to cut the liner a little bigger than the actual frame. When you secure it to the frame, this extra space will help keep the liner taut and in place.

Step 3

You know how picture frames come with a generic photo in them? Well, you can turn that around, so you have a plain white background.

Perhaps you want to make things a little more creative? Then, switch out the white paper with colored paper or any patterned paper to line the inside of the frame.

Step 4

Place the liner over the white paper as you can see down below.

Step 5

The penultimate step is to replace the frame and pop the paper and liner back in place. Just keep in mind that your liner needs to be stretched out across the length of the frame.

If you don’t secure it tight and snug, the liner will begin to sag.

Don’t forget to secure the paper and liner in place with the cardboard holder!
